Hundreds Turn Out For Cards Rally

The University of Louisville women’s basketball team got a high-energy sendoff for the Final Four.

Several hundred fans turned out Wednesday to a pep rally for the team downtown. The Cards will play the first ever Final Four game in the program’s history against Oklahoma Sunday in St. Louis.

Coach Jeff Walz told the fans at the rally he hopes their enthusiasm carries over into next season.

“We love to see all of you,” he said. “Not just in St. Louis but back next year so we can fill Freedom Hall. We need to get fifteen to seventeen-thousand every night.”

Stanford and Connecticut are also in the Final Four. They play Sunday as well.
