LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville men’s basketball team will face Saint Louis in the Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational on Nov. 28 at 8 p.m. ET at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

“This is our fourth season hosting BROOKLYN HOOPS events and we are thrilled to continue showcasing teams from the nation’s top conferences,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Barclays Center. “We are ready for another exciting season of college basketball, culminating in the first and second rounds of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.”

Tickets will go on sale Thursday, August 20 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased via Ticketmaster by visiting, or, or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center beginning Friday, August 14 at noon. Tickets are available for groups by calling 855-GROUP-BK.

The game is the Cardinals’ fourth in the round-robin Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational, with UofL’s first three games played in Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center. The first three games and dates will be announced with the remainder of the Cardinals’ schedule in late August or early September.

Louisville has a 46-20 all-time series advantage over Saint Louis since their first meeting in 1928. The Cardinals have won four of the last five matchups and are 4-0 against the Billikens in neutral site games. In the last meeting, UofL beat Saint Louis 66-51 in the third round of the NCAA Tournament on March 22, 2014 in Orlando, Fla. The schools were previously fellow members in three conferences: Missouri Valley (1964-75), Metro (1975-82), Conference USA (1995-2005).

Saint Louis returns nine scholarship players from last year’s squad, which was among the youngest in the nation and finished 11-21 overall. Among the returnees is sophomore forward Milik Yarbrough, an Atlantic 10 Conference All-Rookie team selection a year ago. Yarbrough was one of five freshmen in the country to lead his team in scoring (10.0 ppg) and rebounding (4.8 rpg). Ash Yacoubou, the Billikens’ lone senior, was second on the team with 9.1 ppg. Neufeld played with Canada in the 2015 FIBA U-19 World Championship this past summer. Two-time A-10 Coach of the Year Jim Crews enters his fourth season at the helm.
