The Louisville Cardinals won the Big East Tournament last season after defeating the Cincinnati Bearcats.

The returning 2011-12 Big East Champions Louisville Cardinals will return to the KFC Yum Center in early November to defend last season’s title.

This season holds high hopes for the Cardinals who should repeat last season’s success.

Last year, the Cardinals rolled past Seton Hall, Marquette, Notre Dame and Cincinnati to win Rick Pitino his 10th conference tournament championship in 27 years of coaching.

They also beat three ranked teams en route to the Cardinals ninth final four appearance.

Pitino runs a balanced offense, so he and the Cardinals should have no problem finding scoring, even though Kyle Kuric and Chris Smith are not returning.

The loss of only a few players and many other factors will contribute to the Cardinals success this season.
