Louisville won’t be ultimate title town

(Continued)

LOUISVILLE, Ky. —

Cassie Martin, a senior on the college track team, said earlier Tuesday that people would flood the street next to the campus, win or lose, to celebrate the teams’ overall success.

“People will still be out there,” she said. “Everyone’s just so excited about U of L.”

Martin added that the underdog women’s team has been especially inspirational to students and fans.

Shortly before the women’s game started, the downtown entertainment area Fourth Street Live was quiet, with just a handful of patrons dressed in red.

As he walked there, Jeff Rhoades said he thought Louisville fans were opting to watch the women’s game at home after a late night watching the men’s title game.

“I’m a pretty big fan, so I had to come out, even if there’s work tomorrow,” said Rhoades, 39.
