Report: Louisville will play in the 2016 Battle 4 Atlantis

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Louisville basketball team is headed back to the Bahamas for Thanksgiving, 2016.

According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, U of L will participate in the 2016 Battle 4 Atlantis, the same tournament the Cards played in back in 2012.

The last time the Cards played in the event, U of L knocked off Northern Iowa and Missouri before falling to Duke (without Gorgui Dieng) in the championship game. The Cards got revenge four months later when they knocked off the Blue Devils in the Elite Eight on their way to winning the national title.

The Battle 4 Atlantis is quickly becoming the pre-eminent early season tournament in college basketball, and now they have a television contract with ESPN so you won't have to find where AXS is if you want to watch the games. This is great news.
