The JSU Gamecocks practiced for 40 minutes on Thursday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis ahead of their NCAA Tournament first-round matchup against Louisville.
"I think right now we are a little nervous, but I think come gameday I think we will be focused and we will be ready," said JSU guard Malcolm Drumwright.
"I told them what's different about tomorrow than Belmont or against Tennessee-Martin. Louisville is bigger and their guys are faster, but we are going to play five-on-five and it's the same basket. Play your game and see what happens," said head coach Ray Harper.
JSU and Louisville tip off Friday afternoon following the Michigan vs. Oklahoma State game.
