Despite all that has happened surrounding the Louisville basketball program recently, the Cardinals are still expected to have a strong 2017-2018 campaign.

Louisville ranks No. 16 in the preseason USA Today Coaches Poll that was released Thursday afternoon. They are one of five ACC teams ranked in the poll.

The Cardinals have one more red-white scrimmage on October 27 at 1 p.m. After that they have two exhibitions against Kentucky Wesleyan and Bellarmine before opening the regular season against George Mason on November 12. Tip-off for the season opener from the KFC YUM! Center is set for 2 p.m.
