07:37 AM ET 01.28 | University of Louisville coach Rick Pitino may not be fond of pleas to the Cardinals faithful or calling January games "must wins." [But] he did both of those things after Saturday's Georgetown loss. Losing three straight games will do that. Pittsburgh invades the KFC Yum! Center the winner of four straight -- including three on the road. The Cardinals (16-4, 4-3 Big East) face the possibility of losing four in a row for the first time since the 2003-04 season. "We have got to get the KFC Yum Center -- it's got to be much better than Syracuse, much better than Kentucky, because we have to get this win," Pitino said. "It's a must game for us, because four ... now you're on the verge of like getting a sub-.500 record in the league."
