NEW ORLEANS - Connecticut beat Louisville by 14 points back in January.
That doesn't mean the Huskies are going to be brimming with confidence about their chances of winning an eighth NCAA national title on Tuesday night against the Cardinals.
Louisville (29-8) has become the master of the upset in the 2013 NCAA tournament.
The Cardinals beat Cal 64-57 in Sunday night's national semifinal in the latest game they weren't supposed to win. Louisville stunned defending national champion Baylor and knocked off perennial power Tennessee just to get to New Orleans.
Connecticut knows how little one should read into previous meetings. UConn (34-4) lost to Notre Dame three times this season, only to beat the Irish handily, 83-65, in Sunday night's other semifinal.
