Via early season schedule czar Jon Rothstein, we now know that Louisville will play its first preseason NIT game against Tennessee, and then will face either Kansas or Marquette two days later.
Kansas will face Marquette and Tennessee will play Louisville in the first round of the Preseason NIT at the Barclays Center, per a source.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) August 9, 2018
Follow-up note No. 1:
Follow-up note No. 2:
The games are set for Nov. 21 and 23 at the Barclays Center. Times will be announced at a later date, and tickets go on sale Aug. 22 at 10 a.m.
Likely preseason top 10 Tennessee on the day before Thanksgiving, either potential preseason No. 1 Kansas or old rival Marquette on the day after Thanksgiving, and then the Battle for the Governor’s Cup on the day after that. Not a bad little holiday weekend.
