FAST FACT

608 ASSISTS BY the Cardinals last season, tops in the Big East and third best in the country. Since coach Rick Pitino came to Louisville in 2001--02, his teams have the 11th-most assists in the nation.

BEST CASE

Unselfishness on and off the court translates into a Big East title and a deep March run, as super freshman Chane Behanan meshes well with this veteran team.

WORST CASE

Rick Pitino's feud with Kentucky's John Calipari becomes a distraction. The Cardinals can't close out games and finish near the bottom of the conference.
