LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---U of L clothes, bags, and hats are all selling fast in Louisville this weekend.
Cards fans are stocking up on all the latest attire to help them cheer on the team.
"Got some of the Elite 8, No sleep until Atlanta shirts...the newest stuff," says fan Shawn Fante.
Right now the T-shirts say Elite 8, but Cards fans are hoping that will soon be replaced with "Final 4", or even "National Champions".
"The way they've been playing, nobody can hold up to the way their defense is playing right now," says Shawn Fante.
Among the shoppers in the Shelbyville Plaza Fan Outfitters store, are Stephanie and Kendall Withered.
"I'm a Louisville fan," says Stephanie Withered.
"Duke fan. All the way," says Kendall Withered.
They're heading to Indianapolis on Sunday to cheer on their two teams, both hoping for a win.
"It's pretty competitive. I'm driving tomorrow so if Louisville wins, it might not be good," says Stephanie Withered.
"I was hoping for her sake that Louisville would lose yesterday, because I didn't want Duke to beat them," says Kendall Withered".
Many fans are playing it safe and not predicting a win for either team. Fans tell us they don't want to jinx the Cards.
"Knock on wood. I'm really superstitious.I just hope they continue to play really well. I'm not going to say more than that because I don't want to jinx anybody, but I hope they play really well," says Taylor Davis.
Meanwhile, a local U of L Alumni Association is stepping up to help the Cards.
After hearing that team members were sick during Friday night's game, the Delta Upsilon Alumni Association ordered soup to be delivered to the players at their hotel.
They hope it will give them a boost in the game against Duke.
