The University of Louisville men’s basketball team begins its series of exhibition games in Puerto Rico on Tuesday.
Over six days the Cardinals will play nine games against the PR’s national team, which is being coached this summer by UofL head man Rick Pitino, and its junior team.
It’s a big trip for Louisville. The Cards lost eight players from the team that started last season, which ended with a 27-9 record and a Elite Eight overtime loss to Michigan State. There are seven new faces on UofL’s 15-man roster, and even more questions.
Here are three of the biggest questions facing the Cards as they head to Puerto Rico and into next season.
