Celebration held for UofL men's basketball team on Fourth Street Live

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE)-  A huge celebration was held at Fourth Street Live Tuesday evening in honor of the Louisville Cardinals men's basketball team, and their run to the Final Four.

The last time the Cards took a trip to the Final Four was in 2005, when nearly 10,000 fans packed Fourth Street Live to show their support for the team. Except back then, it was a sendoff before they left for St. Louis and the Final Four.

This year Rick Pitino had different plans. Coach Pitino did not want to celebrate the team's achievements too soon, which is why the celebration was just held.
