Louisville’s bubble event to kick off the 2020-21 college basketball season now has a name.

The “Wade Houston Tipoff Classic” will begin at the KFC Yum Center on Nov. 25 and will run through Dec. 4.

Louisville will play five games in the event, squaring off against Southern Illinois on Nov. 25 and against Seton Hall two days later. The Cards will also face Prairie View A&M, Western Kentucky and UNC Greensboro on dates to be determined. Arkansas Little Rock, Duquesne and Winthrop will also take part in the event.

So we have our teams, our site and our name. All we need now is to make sure the event doesn’t bolt for Knoxville right before its set to make a splash.

Don’t “too soon” me. It’s been over 30 years. It’s fine.
