Louisville Draws "Top Seed" In Battle 4 Atlantis, Will Open Against Northern Iowa

The bracket for the 2012 Battle 4 Atlantis tournament has been unveiled and Louisville will open against Northern Iowa on Nov. 22 in the last game of day one.

While the tournament is technically unseeded, it certainly appears as if the Cardinals are the event's pseudo top seed. They'll play the final game of day one against what appears to be the weakest team in the field, and are also on the other side of the bracket from the probable two and three seeds in Duke and Memphis.

Here's how the tournament pairings look

Game 1: Missouri vs. Stanford (live at 1:00pm ET on AXS TV)
Game 2: Duke vs. Minnesota (live at 3:30pm ET on AXS TV)
Game 3: Memphis vs. VCU (live at 7:00pm ET on NBC Sports)
Game 4: Louisville vs. Northern Iowa (live at 9:30pm ET on NBC Sports)

Should the Cards top UNI, they will then face the winner of Missouri Stanford on Friday again at 9:30 p.m. Saturday's championship game is also slated for 9:30 p.m.

This will be a must-watch three days of college hoops for even the most casual of fans. The fact that the Cards are going to be a part of it is extremely exciting.
