LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville men’s basketball team has scheduled nine exhibition games over six days against Puerto Rico national teams, including three doubleheaders.

The Cardinals’ tour opens Tuesday in San Juan with consecutive evening doubleheaders featuring split squads against Puerto Rico’s junior and national squads. Another doubleheader follows Saturday in Trujillo Alto with single games at other island sites on Thursday against the junior team and Friday and Sunday against the national squad.

Louisville coach Rick Pitino will guide the national team as part of his commitment to lead that program in two international competitions this summer. His assistants will coach the Cardinals during the program’s first summer foreign trip since 2011 to the Bahamas.

The Cardinals beat Richard Pitino-coached Minnesota last November in the Armed Forces Classic in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.
