The 2012–13 Louisville Cardinals men's basketball team represented the University of Louisville during the 2012–13 NCAA Division I men's basketball season, Louisville's 99th season of intercollegiate competition. The Cardinals competed in the Big East Conference and were coached by Rick Pitino in his 12th season as head coach at Louisville. The team played its home games on Denny Crum Court at the KFC Yum! Center. The Cardinals finished the season 35–5, 14–4 in Big East play to earn a share of the Big East regular season championship. They won the Big East Tournament for the third time in school history and received the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Cardinals earned a trip to the school's fourth Final Four and defeated Michigan to win the NCAA Championship; however, that title was stripped by the NCAA in 2018. The season marked the final year for the Big East under its original structure.
