LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Twin Spires will be lit up Cardinal red to cheer on the University of Louisville men's and women's basketball teams as they each prepare to play in their respective Final Four games.

The spires have been lit previously to support teams. They were highlighted blue and red ahead of the 2012 Kentucky and Louisville matchup in the Final Four.

The spires will also be lit pink during the 2013 Oaks and Derby to support women's health issues.

The UofL men's basketball team will face Wichita State in a national semifinal on Saturday at 6:09 p.m. EDT in Atlanta. The women meet California for their semifinal in New Orleans on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. EDT.
