INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) -The March Madness basketball action in downtown Indianapolis will continue throughout the weekend. Kentucky and Louisville are set to face off at Lucas Oil Stadium for a chance to go to the Final Four.

Wildcat and Wolverine fans spent Saturday recovering from the thrilling games at Lucas Oil Stadium Friday night. Michigan beat Tennessee 73-71 and Kentucky topped rival Louisville 74-69.

“Indianapolis has really been a great host, it’s been a lot of fun.  All of the games go to the last second and it’s been phenomenal to watch as a fan. It’s just been great,” Michigan Fan Bill Emborsky told 24-Hour News 8.

Visit Indy estimates fans in town for the NCAA Regionals will leave $20 million behind at the end of the weekend.

Kentucky forward Willie Cauley-Stein left Friday’s win over Louisville with about 13 minutes left in the first half and did not return. He is doubtful for the regional final against Michigan Sunday.

Sunday’s match-up will air on WISH-TV just after 5 p.m.
