While the mock selection group in Indianapolis has Louisville at a 6 seed, Las Vegas has released their bracketology and they believe the Cards will be a #1 Seed (along with Syracuse, Duke, and Iowa). Why is this interesting? Well first off Vegas isn’t far off very often (Remember mocking when they said Charlie was the favorite for Texas??). And believe it or not this is VERY possible.
If the Cards were to win out that would give them wins over top 10 Cincinnati on the road, top 25 wins over SMU and Memphis on the road, and a top 25 win over UConn at home. At that point the Cards would be close to if not in the Top 5 and an AAC Tournament Championship away from a 1 seed. Even with one regular season loss against a ranked team they would be in play.
Regardless of where the Cards end up one thing is for sure….It’s about to get fun.
