No gimmes among the opponents the University of Louisville will play twice — Notre Dame, Seton Hall, South Florida and Syracuse, each loaded with returning talent.
The good news is U of L won’t have to compete on the home courts of Cincinnati and Marquette but tempered by having to play at DePaul again.
