Louisville's double opponents set for hoops

The University of Louisville will have one of the top teams in the nation entering the 2012-13 season. Today, the Big East announced eight of Louisville's Big East games.

The Cardinals' Big East slate will include 18 games including two games against Notre Dame, Seton Hall, USF and Syracuse. After West Virginia left for the Big 12, there is one less school in the Big East this year, meaning each league team will face 10 opponents once and four twice.

"Our schedule will be another Top 5 slate," coach Rick Pitino said in his blog on rickpitino.com. "Make your reservations now for the Battle 4 Atlantis on Thanksgiving week. We need you!"

The Cardinals' home conference opponents are Cincinnati, Marquette, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Providence, St. John's, Seton Hall, USF and Syracuse. Louisville's nine league road games will be Connecticut, DePaul, Georgetown, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Seton Hall, USF, Syracuse and Villanova.

Pitino and the Cardinals are one of six Big East teams which have been included in early rankings: Louisville, Cincinnati, Marquette, Notre Dame, Syracuse and Villanova. ESPN analyst Dick Vitale proclaimed Louisville his top team in the nation. The Cardinals have also been ranked second in preseason rankings by ESPN.com (Andy Katz), SI.com (Luke Winn) and NBCSports.com (Mike Miller) and third by CBSSports.com (Gary Parrish, Jeff Goodman), Yahoo.com (Mike Huegenin) and SportingNews.com (Mike DeCourcy).

A complete schedule, including dates and times for the Big East games, is expected in early September.
