Louisville Releases 2013-14 Men's Basketball Schedule

The University of Louisville has released its complete men's basketball schedule for the 2013-14 season.

Here is a release from UL:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Appearances in the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic, at least 23 games on national television and 20 home games in the KFC Yum! Center highlight the 2013-14 University of Louisville men's basketball schedule.

Nearly half of the Cardinals' 31 games will be played against teams that participated in post-season competition last season, including at least seven from the NCAA Tournament (NCAA Tournament: Cincinnati twice, Memphis twice, Temple twice, Western Kentucky, possible North Carolina in the Hall of Fame Classic; NIT: Kentucky, Southern Mississippi; College Basketball Invitational: College of Charleston, Houston twice, possible Richmond in the Hall of Fame Classic; College Insiders.com Tournament: Fairfield, Hartford). Twenty of the defending NCAA Champions' games will be played against teams that won at least 18 games last season.

Many new opponents will appear on the Louisville schedule this season through new agreements and with the Cardinals' initial season in the American Athletic Conference.

"The American should be a highly competitive conference," said U of L Coach Rick Pitino, whose team played the nation's fourth-toughest schedule by the ratings percentage index (RPI) last season. "I certainly don't enjoy the transitional part of our conference affiliation, but this is the best scenario possible in that we still have many partners from the BIG EAST and Conference USA still aligned with us. We look forward to the challenge."

A limited quantity of season tickets in the 300 level corners of the KFC Yum! Center are on sale now for $781 each, averaging $39 per game, and are renewable for future seasons. A payment plan option is available. Visit www.GoCards.com/GetInNow and then call (502) GO-CARDS by September for incentives and seat availability (9am-5pm).
