ATLANTA (AP) - The Louisville women's team will be getting plenty of cheers in Atlanta.
Turns out, the men are big fans.
Both Louisville teams made it to the Final Four. The men already advanced to the championship game in Atlanta with a semifinal victory over Wichita State; the women are facing California in a semifinal at New Orleans on Sunday night.
The men were on a bus leaving Indianapolis when the women pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the history of their NCAA tournament, beating Brittney Griner and defending national champion Baylor 82-81 in the regional semifinals.
``We were yelling at the little TVs,'' guard Petyon Siva said. ``We were on the bus jumping up and down.''
Siva and several of his teammates attended every women's game they could when both teams were in Louisville.
``I think they're exciting to watch,'' he said. ``A lot of people say they don't like girls basketball. I love watching them play, just their heart and hustle. They're basically a carbon copy of us. They go out there and play with a lot of energy. They go out and play without a lot of flash. They just get the job done.''
