Fresh off its Big East tournament title, surging Louisville received a 4 seed in the West regional and will face Davidson in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday.
The Cardinals (26-9) had an up-and-down season and appeared to be fading in the final weeks of the regular season with a home loss to South Florida and another at Syracuse to cap a 2-4 stretch.
But point guard Peyton Siva and Louisville's three seniors — Kyle Kuric, Chris Smith and Jared Swopshire — put on a show in New York as Louisville finally showed some signs of offensive life to go along with its stout defense.
Now they'll get a test in the tournament against the Southern Conference champion Wildcats (25-7) in Portland, Ore.
