A great move by the program.

As most of you are probably aware of, local radio show host/Louisville basketball radio analyst Bob Valvano is currently in a battle with Stage 4 chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Valvano began chemotherapy less than a week ago, and while his first treatment was more than a bit rough, round two appears to have gone much better.

With Valvano settling into his fight, the Louisville basketball program decided it was time to send him a collective message of encouragement.

This is pretty cool.

Props to Kenny Klein, Chris Mack, all the players, and everyone else who made that happen. That was a wonderful move, and it was pretty clear that Valvano was sincerely touched.

Keep sending your prayers, thoughts, good vibes, etc. in Bob’s direction until this battle is won by the good guy.
