Whiskey, baseball bats and horse racing are some of the fundamental things that make Louisville the city it is, but two more of its signature features will merge Saturday.
Muhammad Ali and Cardinals basketball.
Chris Mack’s 15th-ranked team will wear Ali-inspired uniforms Saturday when No. 9 North Carolina comes to the KFC Yum! Center in a ACC showdown.
Ali is a native son of Louisville and is, of course, one of the pioneering boxers, athletes and activists in American history. The city has recently renamed its airport after The Greatest, and now the Cardinals will honor Ali, who died in 2016.
