We Louisville fans are all feeling a deep sadness as today was supposed to be the first day of the NCAA Tournament. March Madness in Louisville is like a national holiday. It’s a time when the air is warming with the coming of spring. A time when we gather at a friend’s house, a bar, or some other venue to watch 63 teams and our beloved Cardinals. Fortune, however, proved unkind. For the first time in our lives, March Madness was canceled and became March Sadness. However, UofL Athletics wants to ease our pain.
The athletics department today announced that a trio of classic Louisville Cardinals Men’s Basketball games from this past season will be broadcast on 840WHAS. Those games include the victories over Michigan and Virginia at the KFC Yum! Center and the victory over Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium. These broadcasts will take place on three consecutive Saturdays starting with this Saturday. I can’t think of anything better to soften the blow of a lost tournament than to hear the legendary UofL play-by-play voice Paul Rogers call these epic Louisville victories.
For all the details on these special broadcasts, read the UofL press release below.
