LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Just one day after Selection Monday for the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, the KFC Yum! Center’s crews are hard at work setting up for the basketball tip-off on Friday.
According to Kevin Washam, event manager for the center, the floor has been installed while finishing touches were made Tuesday.
They include covering some of the signs and decals that have to be placed on the floor.
Washam said it’s a very exciting time for the Yum! Center.
“The atmosphere is going to be a great atmosphere. You’re looking at a potential second round game between U of L and Tennessee which to me is like an Elite 8 or Sweet 16 type game,” he said.
The Lady Cards are a No. 4 seed in the tournament and will face No.13 seed Chattanooga at 1:30 p.m.
