With the field of 68 set for the NCAA Tournament, Louisville earned the top-overall seed and will play in the Midwest Region. The Cardinals first-round opponent is unknown as of yet, as they will play the winner of a First Four game scheduled for Tuesday.
Despite being the top-overall seed, the Cardinals face a challenging road with No. 2 Duke, No. 3 Michigan State, and No. 4 Saint Louis all as potential obstacles along the way. In addition to the top four seeds, the Midwest is home to plenty of lower-seeded teams ready to pull off a big upset.
The winners of both of the First Four games on Tuesday will play their round of 64 games in the Midwest Region on Thursday. The complete schedule is below with times and TV coverage, all times are Eastern. To see who is announcing each game, click here.
