LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer has declared Friday April 5 as "Cardinal Red Day."
Mayor Fischer says he wants the city to break its own "world record" for the most people wearing the color in one day.
In a new release Wednesday Fischer said:
“The city is abuzz with excitement over both men’s and women’s teams – and the tremendous teamwork that brought them to this pinnacle of college basketball,” Fischer said. “Kevin Ware showed that, even in personal adversity, he put his teammates first, asking them to win the game and they responded by rallying around him. The women’s satisfying run in the tournament shows what a high-performance team can accomplish.”
