PORTLAND, Ore. - A day prior to its second-round game against No. 13-seed Davidson in the NCAA Tournament at Rose Garden Arena, the University of Louisville men's basketball team participated in pre-tournament activities Wednesday afternoon in Portland, Ore.
After arriving at the venue, home of the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers, sophomore Peyton Siva and senior Kyle Kuric took questions in the media interview room from various media outlets. Other players remained in the locker room, discussing the 2011-12 season, winning the BIG EAST Tournament title and the upcoming game against the Wildcats. Head coach Rick Pitino also met with the media in the interview room to discuss Thursday's matchup against Davidson.
Following the interviews and media session, the Cardinals took to the court for a short practice session. Freshman Angel Nunez ended the practice with a dunk that earned a round of applause from a crowd that was filled with primary school students.
Thursday's game between Louisville and Davidson will be aired on TBS at 1:40 p.m. ET, with Brian Anderson (play-by-play), Dan Bonner (color) and Jenn Hildreth (reporter) calling the action. Fans can listen to the game on the radio on both WHAS 840 AM and WKRD 790 AM, as Paul Rogers (play-by-play) and Bob Valvano (color) will have the call.
