When Louisville heads to New York later this week for the Big East Tournament, it will do so as the No. 4 team in the country.
The Cards made the move up four spots in the AP Top 25, and jumped a pair in the USA Today coaches' poll. U of L sits behind No. 1 Gonzaga, Duke and Indiana in both polls, but leap-frogged co-Big East regular season champion Georgetown.
I think it's pretty clear at this point that if either Louisville or Georgetown winds up cutting down the nets inside Madison Square Garden, a No. 1 seed on Selection Sunday will be in their future.
