Louisville, Chris Mack back in NCAAs sooner than expected

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Louisville wasn't expected to be here this March.

But the Cardinals adopted a motto of sorts - "working hard and being tough" - and they have done just enough of both to get back to the NCAA Tournament after a turmoil-filled season in 2017-18. Picked to finish 11th in the 14-team ACC in the preseason under new coach Chris Mack, Louisville will face 10th-seeded Minnesota (21-13) on Thursday in the East Region as the tourney gets rolling in earnest.

"We were a resilient group," said guard Christen Cunningham, a graduate transfer from Samford averaging 9.8 points per game. "We had a really tough schedule. We knew that coming into the year, but we took the motto of being stronger together and unbreakable and we used being 11th as a chip on our shoulder for motivation."
