Tennessee coach Pat Summitt directs her team against Louisville in their NCAA college basketball game in Louisville, Ky., Friday, Nov. 12, 2010. No. 4 Tennessee defeated Louisville 63-50 in the season opener for both teams.

There's at least one Big East team that Tennessee coach Pat Summitt would consider playing again.

That would be Louisville, not Connecticut.

Summitt and her No. 4 Lady Vols beat the Cardinals 63-50 in the first regular-season game at Louisville's new KFC Yum! Center on Friday night. Asked about Cardinals coach Jeff Walz, she said she thinks he "does things the right way."

Tennessee hasn't played UConn since Summitt canceled the series three seasons ago. Last month, Summitt said she's never committed recruiting violations in what was seen as a shot at Tennessee men's coach Bruce Pearl. She said later she probably had Connecticut on her mind.

"There's a reason we don't play them," she said.
