Louisville Opens Big East Play Tomorrow

The defending Big East champion Louisville men’s basketball team opens Big East play tomorrow night against South Florida. The nine-and-three Cards face ten-and-two USF at Freedom Hall.

Coach Rick Pitino says the team can’t think about the game Saturday against rival Kentucky, because the consequences of the USF game are too great.

“If we don’t take care of business…we make not make the tournament! We’re in bad shape! Opening up 0-1 in the Big East at home? With this conference when you’ve got to play all those road games?” says Pitino.

After Kentucky, the team travels to Providence for another road game.
