The Louisville Invitational basketball Tournament announced its bracket last week. The Tigers qualified for the 20-team tournament and will begin play facing 18th seeded Moore. The Tigers themselves are seeded 15th.

Last year, the Tigers made it to the LIT semifinals to face Ballard, the first time the team had done so since 1975, and a chance to play in the finals for the first time since 1967. However, Ballard came back from a nine-point first half deficit to win the game.

No matter, the Tigers still have a chance to make a splash in the tournament. Here’s what the rest of the tournament schedule looks like:
