Louisville Cardinals Basketball Conference
Athletic Conference may be a name that seems unfamiliar to casual sports fans but it is the new name of the former Big East.
The conference changed its name after several schools left for other conferences and new teams were added. Many of these new
members were located outside of the East Coast so the conference was re-branded. As far as college basketball is concerned,
the conference remains a powerhouse with the likes of UCONN and Louisville still battling it out. This year you can once again
expect teams from the American Athletic Conference to make deep runs in the NCAA Tournament as well as provide fans with memorable
games throughout the conference season. Be sure to make your plans to visit KFC Yum Center this season for some of the top
American Athletic Conference match ups of the year. After the 2014 season Louisville will be joining the ACC where they will
be reunited with other former Big East schools including Notre Dame, Syracuse, and Pitt.
The biggest rivalry by far for the Louisville Cardinals exists with in state rivals the Kentucky
Wildcats. Fortunately for basketball fans everywhere the two schools face each other at least once a year despite not being
in the same conference. This long standing rivalry has long been one of the best in the sport and only intensified a few years
ago when former Kentucky head coach, and basketball Hall of Fame member, took over as the head coach of Louisville. In conference
rivalries with the likes of UCONN and Rutgers are still going strong and you can be sure that once UCONN and Louisville make
their move to the ACC next season their animosity will remain in tact.
