University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino said his team will be presented the Big East regular season championship trophy Wednesday night at halftime of the Notre Dame-West Virginia game in Madison Square Garden.
Louisville won the title Saturday night by defeating West Virginia. The Cards finished 16-2 in the league, a game ahead of UConn and Pittsburgh.
Louisville will depart for New York at 10 Wednesday morning and will then practice at 3 p.m. The Cards will play either DePaul or Providence Thursday at noon. DePaul, which went 0-18 in the league during the regular season, upset Cincinnati in the opening game of the tournament today.
