Louisville coach Rick Pitino made it clear shortly after the beginning of ACC action that he wanted Donovan Mitchell to start playing like a star, and that push appears to be all the sophomore guard needed to become one of the better players in the conference.

Following yet another explosive offensive performance from Mitchell over the weekend, the 8th-ranked Cardinals wrap up their regular-season road schedule Wednesday when they visit Wake Forest.

Mitchell (16.1 points) averaged 11.5 points on 35.7-percent shooting and turned in only six single-digit scoring efforts through his first 13 outings this season when Pitino challenged him and Deng Adel to step up offensively following a Dec. 28 loss to Virginia.

The 6-3 Connecticut native exploded for a career-high 25 against Indiana three days later and hasn't slowed down much since, averaging 19.8 points on 47.2-percent from the field after going off for another 25 points on 9-of-16 shooting - including six 3-pointers - in Sunday's 88-68 victory over Syracuse for his 15th double-digit effort in 16 games.

BetOnline has the Louisville listed as 4-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 153½.
