LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The University of Louisville learned the breakdown of its Big East men's basketball schedule today, and three of the Cards' four double opponents are teams that made the NCAA Tournament last season. 

Those teams are Syracuse, Notre Dame and South Florida. The Cards' fourth double opponent will be Seton Hall.

Here is Louisville's complete men's basketball schedule breakdown:

LOUISVILLE

 

Home

Cincinnati, Marquette, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Providence, St. John's, Seton HallUSFSyracuse

Away

Connecticut, DePaul, Georgetown, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Seton HallUSFSyracuse, Villanova.


 

Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com has Syracuse ranked sixth in the nation next season. Louisville is the only other team in his pre-season Top 25, plus one.

Until this season, Big East teams had played only three league opponents home and home. The departure of West Virginia changed the scheduling rotation.

According to Big East officials, all 15 Big East teams will play either nine or 10 games against teams that made the NCAA Tournament last season. The Cards will play 10 games against 2012 NCAA Tournament teams.

Getting DePaul and UConn on only the road is a break. The Blue Demons have never been a factor in the league and the Huskies will struggle after losing players to the NBA and transfers.
