Louisville Will Face Rutgers In AAC Tournament Opener

Andy Lyons

Louisville will open its 2014 postseason against Rutgers, which held off South Florida, 72-68 in front of no less than 17 of their closest friends and family in the first round of the AAC Tournament Wednesday night.

Big man Kadeem Jack led four Scarlet Knights in double figures, scoring 18 points on 5-of-7 shooting and 8-of-11 from the free-throw line. Leading scorer Myles Mack added 16.

Louisville swept the regular season series with Rutgers, winning 83-76 in Piscataway and then humiliating the Scarlet Knights at the Yum Center by a final of 102-54.

The Cards and Scarlet Knights will be the second quarterfinal game on Thursday, which is set to tip off at approximately 3 p.m. (will likely be more like 3:30) on ESPNU. This will be the first postseason meeting between the two teams, who were both members of the Big East from 2005-06 through last season.
