LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - UofL and IU will face off in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge this November. Not the men, the women.

The Cards visit the Hoosiers on Thursday, November 30. It will be the tenth meeting, with the Hoosiers holding a 6-3 advantage.

The last came on December 4, 2005, in Freedom Hall. UofL won that game 72-67.

UofL was 29-8 in 2016-17, advancing to the Sweet 16 for the seventh time in school history. The Cards return All-Americans Asia Durr and Myisha Hines-Allen.

IU was 23-11 and reached the quarterfinals of the WNIT. The Hoosiers return leading scorers Tyra Buss and Amanda Cahill.

"This is a really intriguing matchup for not only our team but for our fan base as well," IU head coach Teri Moren said. "Louisville is a really solid opponent who will really challenge our non-conference schedule, and prepare us for Big Ten play."

Game times and television networks will be announced at a later date.
