The Morehead State eagles hope to soar to a huge win Thursday against in-state rival Louisville Cardinals.
The teams are a little more than a hundred miles apart, but they'll play their opening tournament game more than a thousand miles away in Denver.
The Eagles practiced Wednesday morning in Pepsi Center in Denver and they have a lot of fans coming to cheer them on. Two fan buses left Morehead Wednesday morning with 99 Eagle supporters aboard. They will drive all night in order to get to Denver in time for the game.
Morehead and Louisville play at 1:30pm Thursday. You can see that game live on TBS.
