Taking a trip to Seattle is not the easiest thing to do. For the average person it means either waking up real early, or traveling for most of the day. However for Cards Head Coach Rick Pitino, going to the Pacific Northwest for the NCAA Tournament is just what he was hoping for. Forget about the home court advantage, Pitino feels his 24-8 squad plays better on the road and away from the distractions of family, friends, and fans.

Louisville takes on 21-12 UC-Irvine Friday at 4:10pm ET. The game will be televised on TBS. That winner meets the Wyoming/Northern Iowa winner on Sunday. Stay with cn|2 sports as we follow the Cards during their NCAA Tournament run.
