The Cards and Deacs will meet for a second time this season.

NCAA Womens Basketball: Tennessee-Martin at Louisville Courier Journal-USA TODAY NETWORK

The top-seeded Louisville women’s basketball team will open its postseason against a Wake Forest team that nearly upset them back in January.

The ninth-seeded Demon Deacons earned their spot in the tournament quarterfinals by virtue of an 82-71 win over North Carolina Thursday afternoon in Greensboro.

When the two teams squared off in Winston-Salem on Jan. 24, Wake Forest appeared poised to pull off what would have been the biggest upset of the ACC season. Then, eventual league Player of the Year Dana Evans took things into her own hands in the closing seconds.

Round two between Louisville and Wake Forest will tip-off at noon on Friday on regional sports networks across the country.
