The new basketball season is young but it's never too early for a major test.
And the University of Louisville basketball team has that tonight against Michigan State at 7:15 p.m.
The Cardinals (5-0) are No. 24 in the Associated Press poll, while the No. 3 Spartans are also undefeated. It's a rematch of last year's NCAA Tournament Elite Eight contest in Syracuse, N.Y., won by the Spartans.
The two undefeated teams face each other in the continuing ACC-Big Ten Challenge at 7:15 p.m. in the Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing. The game is on ESPN.
