If I remember correctly, this is third time in Louisville's last four trips to the dance that they've played their first round game in the last possible time slot.
U of L opened as a one-point underdog in Vegas, but are now a one-point favorite after five hours of betting.
Though the start time would certainly seem to benefit the left-coasters, here's a quick review of Louisville's last three meetings with Pac-10 foes in the NCAA Tournament:
4) Louisville 93, 1) Washington 79 (2005)
6) Louisville 78, 11) Stanford 58 (2007)
1) Louisville 103, 12) Arizona 64 (2009)
Here's hoping Earl Clark's available to do the scout.
