It seems like forever since the Louisville basketball team played a regular season game. Last year ended without a postseason tournament appearance, but it seems as though this team is poised to overcome the “scandal” drama and get back into March.

The Cardinals finished their exhibition play against Kentucky Wesleyan and Bellarmine, however their first real test of the season comes against the Evansville Purple Aces on Friday night.
