Louisville Cardinals Basketball

The team has struggled in recent seasons, particularly in 2022-23 when they posted a dire 4-28 record under new coach Kenny Payne. The Cardinals‘ huge legions of devoted fans will be hoping for much better in 2024 and the seasons to come.

Louisville Cardinals Rivalries

The Louisville Cardinals have an intense state rivalry with the storied Kentucky Wildcats that has been described as one of the best in college basketball. The teams actually did not play each other much for seventy years (1913-1983), but the rivalry heated up again in the 80s after they met in Elite 8 of the NCAA March Madness tournament, with Louisville winning 80-68. The teams have played one another once a year ever since. The Louisville Cardinals also have a long-standing rivalry against the Cincinnati Bearcats. In recent years, a rivalry with the Clemson Tigers has developed, with the Cardinals winning in 2023 but the Tigers triumphant in 2024.
