The Louisville women’s basketball team has earned the No. 5 seed in the Seattle Region for the 2023 NCAA tournament. The Cards will begin their tournament run on Saturday against Missouri Valley Conference champion Drake, the 12-seed.

U of L and Drake will tip-off at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. ESPN2 will have the television coverage.

Should U of L advance, a rematch against No. 4 seed Texas likely awaits them in the second round. The Cards defeated the Longhorns in the Battle 4 Atlantis back in November, a win which turned out to be their only in the event. UT went 0-3 in the tournament.

Here’s a full look at Louisville’s region:
