Last game of the regular season against Virginia. I’m sure that won’t be soul crushingly painful at all. Also, it’s going to be weird going the last workweek of the regular season without a weekday game.

My only other thought here is that this seems to be the most evenly spaced out ACC schedule Louisville has been dealt so far. There’s not one stretch of two or three weeks that would seem to be disproportionately difficult or easy. Although those first seven games in February could be rough if Clemson, Florida State and Virginia Tech are all overachieving again.

Hoops will be here before you know it.
