LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A group on the UK campus will be featured on CBS during the NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship game. The Christian Student Fellowship filmed themselves watching the last UK win. That video went viral and was shown on ESPN. The attention will continue with broadcast of the championship game.
A camera crew will show live pictures of the group's reaction throughout the game.
The group hosted viewing parties for all of UK's games. Attendance at the viewing parties has increased as the Wildcats progressed in the tournament. The Louisville game had 276 people watching. The Wisconsin game had 420 people. Staff member Keith McMunn expects 600 people to show up to watch the title game.
He says their building has three projection screens and three TVs carrying the game.
"We are actually planning on setting up a GoPro above projector screen to get a more down arial shot," said McMunn.
"You can just hear when a big shot goes up, the room goes quiet, and then it explodes if it goes in," said Brian Marshall, Christian Student Fellowship Director. "There's a collective sigh if it misses. You just feel like you all are experiencing this amazing moment together. "
CBS crews will arrive around 8:30 p.m.
Students are encouraged to arrive around 8 p.m.
The Christian Student Fellowship building is on the corner of Woodland and Columbia Avenues.
