LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - They haven't stopped partying in Louisville.
The latest celebration Wednesday was a bit more structured as the NCAA champion Cardinals' men's team and runner-up women's squad received heroes' welcomes at the KFC Yum! Center. A near-capacity crowd awash in red thanked players and coaches for providing one of the most satisfying weeks ever with both playing for titles and the men delivering Louisville's first championship in 27 years.
Both Cardinals programs responded with short expressions of gratitude, allowing Louisville men's coach Rick Pitino to have the final word.
Hoarse from a whirlwind Final Four including his election to the Hall of Fame followed by his second title, Pitino drew a huge cheer by asking, ``Wouldn't it be great if we somehow got back to Dallas?'' for next year's championship.
