UofL BASKETBALL | ACC Tournament Week Has Arrived

03/06/2017 06:56 PM

The #10 Louisville Cardinals (24-7, 12-6) are getting ready for this week’s ACC Tournament in Brooklyn, N.Y.‘s Barclays Center.

The Cards are coming off a 71-64 win over then-ranked #19 Notre Dame (23-8, 12-6) on Saturday.

As a result of Louisville’s win, it clinched a double-bye in this week’s ACC bracket as the tournament’s number-four seed. It will play its first tournament game Thursday at 2 p.m. ET against either number-five seed Duke, number-12 seed Clemson or number-13 seed North Carolina St.

This will be the first-time the ACC Tournament will be held in New York City.

ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas shared his thoughts on having the tournament played in the Big Apple during a teleconference on Monday:
