The University of Louisville women's basketball team finished the regular season on Sunday with a 24-6 record, including 15-1 in the ACC. Here's a notebook of items dealing with the U of L women's team, including ACC Tournament pairings, recruiting and ticket information.

ACC Pairings

Louisville is the No. 2 seed in the ACC Tournament, which begins on Wednesday in Greensboro, N.C. Notre Dame is No. 1, while Syracuse is No. 3 and Florida State is the No. 4 seed.

The top four seeds get a bye into the quarterfinals, which will be played on Friday.

Louisville will play the survivor of the games pitting No. 10 Wake Forest and No. 15 Clemson and the winner of that game taking on No. 8 seed Georgia Tech. The Cardinals will play their first game on Friday at 6 p.m.

The semifinals are Saturday at noon and 12:30 p.m. with the title game slated for Sunday at 12:30.

Recruits in the stands

Louisville had two big-time recruits in the stands for Sunday's win over Pittsburgh.

Zoe Young, who is ranked as high as No. 13 in the Class of 2019, is a guard from Des Moines, Iowa. The 5-foot-9 Young is already highly-sought after by major Division I programs.

Also in attendance was Allen, Tx., guard Nyah Green, who is considered the No. 1 player in the '19 class.

Attendance on the rise

It appears Louisville will finish third nationally in attendance, averaging 9,908 in its 14 home games. The Cardinals will finish behind South Carolina (14,831) and Tennessee (10,285) in attendance.

U of L averaged 10,078 in the eight ACC games at the Yum Center.

NCAA tickets going on sale

The Cardinals are eligible to serve as a host for the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament first and second rounds from March 18-21 in the KFC Yum! Center. The NCAA bracket will be drawn on March 14.

If the Cardinals do get to host - which it appears they are in line to do so - tickets can be purchased soon.

U of L premium seat holders, who have the first right of refusal for tickets to all events in the arena, including shows, concerts, and games, have been offered a small window of opportunity to purchase tickets. Beginning Monday at noon, all Louisville women’s basketball season ticket holders will be given a pre-sale offer to obtain tickets. Using Ticketmaster, fans can select their specific seats for the two days of games.

Men’s basketball season ticket holders and the general public can purchase tickets later in the week.
