PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Following its record-setting 2013 season, the Louisville baseball team will enter 2014 as the unanimous favorite to win the inaugural American Athletic Conference championship while Cardinals’ senior outfielder Jeff Gardner was selected as the league’s Preseason Player of the Year on Monday.

Louisville, which won its fourth Big East regular season championship in five years and advanced to the College World Series for the second time in school history last season, received all eight possible first-place votes and 64 points overall in the preseason poll of the conference’s head coaches announced on Monday by the league. The Cardinals, ranked No. 8 in last week’s Collegiate Baseball newspaper preseason poll, was also tabbed as the preseason favorite in the Big East Conference last season before eventually winning the regular season title and a school record 51 games overall.

Following Louisville in Monday’s preseason poll was Houston, UCF and Connecticut in a three-way tie for second place with 47 points each. USF rounded out the top five with 34 points, while the final four spots in the preseason conference rundown were Memphis (30), Rutgers (27), Cincinnati (18) and Temple (8).
