LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Defending national champion Louisville is seeded fourth in the Midwest Region of the NCAA tournament and will face 13th-seeded Manhattan on Thursday in Orlando, Fla.

The Cardinals will enter the NCAA tournament on a roll. Louisville (29-5) has won five straight, including a 71-61 win over Connecticut in the American Athletic Conference tournament final on Saturday.

Manhattan (25-7), out of the Metro Atlantic, finished second to Iona in the regular season. But the Jaspers beat the Gaels 71-68 on March 10 to earn the league’s automatic bid.
