Bulls, Prado face familiar foe in Louisville
USF baseball coach Lelo Prado will get a shot at his old school, as the Bulls will face top-seeded Louisville on Friday night in an elimination game in the Big East tournament at Bright House Field.
The Cardinals, two-time defending league champions, were upset 6-5 by St. John's on Thursday night -- technically, the game ended at 12:46 Friday morning -- putting the Red Storm in Saturday's semifinals, where they'll face the Bulls-Cardinals winner.
USF didn't play Louisville this season, but the Bulls have faced Prado's old school nine times since he came to USF, going 2-7 in those games. Prado coached 11 seasons at Louisville from 1996-2006, winning 320 games with the Cardinals.
