Louisville Cardinals Basketball TicketsThe Louisville Cardinals basketball team has a long and illustrious history as one of the premier programs of college basketball. Since joining the NCAA, Louisville has had a remarkably stable foundation from which to build, even as the team itself transitioned between the Missouri Valley Conference, the Metro Conference, Conference USA, the Big East, the American Athletic Conference and finally the Atlantic Coast Conference. Peck Hickman was the team’s first great head coach. During his two-decade tenure, Louisville won 443 games and reached the tournament on multiple occasions. He was succeeded by head coach John Dromo, who won 75 percent of his games over a short span of time. Between 1971 and 2017, Louisville basketball was dominated by only two head coaches: Denny Crum and Rick Pitino. The two coaches accumulated 675 wins and 416 wins, respectively, and won national titles in 1980, 1986 and 2013, though the 2013 championship was later vacated. Before it joined the NCAA, Louisville also won a 1948 championship at the NAIA level.
