The final piece has been put into place.

NCAA Basketball: Louisville at Indiana Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday night’s announcement from Nebraska-Omaha that the Mavericks will be taking on Louisville on Nov. 17 at the KFC Yum Center put the final piece in the puzzle that is U of L’s 2017-18 non-conference basketball schedule.

The season tips off in exactly 100 days.

Here’s the full rundown of what we’re working with here:

Nov. 12 — vs. George Mason

Nov. 17 — vs. Nebraska-Omaha

Nov. 21 — vs. Southern Illinois

Nov. 24 — vs. St. Francis (Pa.)

Nov. 28 — At Purdue (ACC-Big 10 Challenge)

Dec. 3 — vs. Seton Hall

Dec. 9 — vs. Indiana

Dec. 11 — vs. Bryant

Dec. 16 — vs. Memphis (Gotham Classic at Madison Square Garden in NY)

Dec. 20 — vs. Albany

Dec. 23 — vs. Grand Canyon

Dec. 29 — At Kentucky

It’s certainly not the sexiest lineup the Cardinals have ever faced, but Kentucky, Purdue and Seton Hall should all be in the thick of March Madness, and Indiana and Memphis are still relevant names on the national stage.

St. Francis PA, though ... St. Francis PA has gotta fall. We’re comin’ for you, Red Flash.
