Louisville will host 25 NBA scouts for Wednesday’s nationally televised game against rival Kentucky, a school source said.

Kentucky has three projected first-round picks in freshmen Malik Monk, De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo.

Nearly 50 scouts were in Las Vegas on Saturday when Monk went off for 47 points in a 103-100 win over North Carolina. He is the projected No. 5 pick in 2017 by DraftExpress.com.

Meantime, Louisville will also host several recruits, included 2017 commit Malik Williams, 2018 point guards Luguentz Dort and Courtney Ramey and 2018 shooting guard Romeo Langford, who went off for 40 points on Dec. 15 with Louisville coach Rick Pitino among the coaches watching.
