NCAA basketball schedule: Top-ranked Louisville travels to Connecticut

Andy Lyons

Could Louisville and Kansas become the next highly-ranked teams to be upended? Both teams face tough tests on Monday.

The Louisville Cardinals, the nation's new No. 1 after losses by Duke and Michigan over the weekend, hit the road to face the Connecticut Huskies on Monday in Big East Conference action.

Louisville ended the weekend as the third-ranked team in the nation after beating South Florida, 64-38, on Saturday. Duke's loss to NC State on that day, coupled with Michigan's loss to Ohio State on Sunday, may result in the Cardinals leapfrogging both teams, despite Louisville's five-point loss to the Blue Devils earlier this season.

The Cardinals will face a UConn team that toppled No. 17 Notre Dame on the road on Saturday, ending the Fighting Irish's 12-game winning streak. Tyler Olander and Shabazz Napier combined to score 35 points on 16-of-22 shooting in the victory.

Louisville and UConn will tip off at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.

In other top 25 action, the No. 6 Kansas Jayhawks face a bit of a test with the Baylor Bears visiting Lawrence. After a close loss to No. 13 Gonzaga on the road, Baylor bounced back to win its first three Big 12 games, including an 82-48 thrashing of Texas Tech in Lubbock.

Kansas avoided an upset in its conference opener, getting past Iowa State in overtime on Jan. 9. The Jayhawks followed that with a 60-46 win over Texas Tech on Saturday.

Kansas and Baylor will get started after the completion of the Louisville-UConn game on ESPN.
