Every player has that one opponent that for some reason brings out the best in them. For Louisville senior point guard Peyton Siva, the UConn Huskies are the team for him. In six games against the Huskies in his career, Siva is 5-1. PS3 has had some of his best individual performances against UConn. In his last four games against the Huskies, Siva is averaging 13.5 points, 6.7 assists and 3.5 steals.  The last time Siva played on the road at UConn he arguably had one of the best performances of his career. Siva is coming off a 17-point performance against South Florida and joined Louisville’s 1,000 point club. Siva has only led the Cards in scoring on a few occasions this year, but tonight may the type of game where he takes over. UConn likes to play at a pace that favors both Siva and Russ Smith. The Huskies are a very guard heavy team and will likely try to run with Louisville.
