The Kentucky versus Louisville NCAA semifinal men's basketball game Saturday is called the "Game of the Century" around the Bluegrass State.
That's evidence enough that it's a pretty big game.
But more good clues are revealed when high school coaches are altering and flat out canceling events in order to watch the game. On TV. According to Jason Frakes
, fine prep columnist for the Louisville Courier-Journal, several Louisville area schools have "rearranged or canceled games so as not to miss the UK-U of L contest." Seneca's (Louisville)
baseball team rescheduled its 3 p.m. game with Hart County (Munfordville)
for 1 p.m. The NCAA titanic is scheduled for a 6:09 tipoff local time.
"We would not have made it out alive if fans and coaches missed the game," Seneca coach Larry Williams told Frakes. Manual (Louisville)
softball team is in an interesting situation. It travels to Lexington for a doubleheader starting at 10 a.m. "A Louisville team is going to Lexington – we might talk a little trash while we are there," Manual coach Andrew Hundley told Frakes.
