Who's ready for some hot, hot basketball scheduling news in mid-April? It doesn't really matter what your answer is, because here it comes flying at your dome.
Grand Canyon will host Louisville on December 3rd, source told @CBSSports. Return game of home-and-home series.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) April 12, 2016
Contrary to Rothstein's tweet, this is actually the second game of a three-game contract between the two programs. Grand Canyon will make a return visit to the KFC Yum Center in 2017.
The Antelopes, who are still transitioning to Division-I and are thus ineligible for postseason play, posted a 27-7 overall record in 2015-16, including an 11-3 mark in WAC play. Dan Majerle's team was pummeled by Louisville, 111-63 on Dec. 5, easily the team's most lopsided defeat of the season.

Imagine what it's going to be like when Louisville comes to town.
