Selection Sunday is 7 weeks from yesterday and it’s probably still a little early to begin looking at where the Cards are at the moment especially with a REALLY tough schedule upcoming UofL.  The Cards can make gains towards their seeding AND they can also slide from their current position. There are 12 regular season games remaining…and of course the ACC Tournament.

Keep in mind.

  • Louisville can’t play in the South Regional because the Yum! Center hosts the Regional Semifinals & Regional Final (Sweet 16 & Elite 8) there this season.  This will limit Louisville to 3 Regional options for 2016.

The other Regional locations are:  Anaheim, CA (Honda Center-WEST), Philadelphia, PA (Wells Fargo Center-EAST), or Chicago, IL (United Center (Midwest).  Chicago is probably the most fan friendly option but there isn’t an Indianapolis or Nashville here for Louisville fans so Chicago may as well be Anaheim for many.

The most fan-friendly route is Louisville playing its 1st & 2nd round match-ups in St. Louis and playing in Chicago for the Regional rounds.

Jerry Palm

#4 Seed in Midwest Region (Chicago) via Spokane, WA
