Christian Laettner trolls Kentucky before Louisville March Madness game

Published Add your comment

Kentucky take on Louisville tonight in the Sweet Sixteen of this year's NCAA Tournament, and one of their old foes has already revealed where his loyalties lie.

As the picture above shows, Christian Laettner is back to put his support behind the Louisville Cardinals 22 years after condemning the Wildcats to one of the most famous defeats in March Madness history with his famous buzzer-beater.

With his beloved Duke having already exited the tournament at the first round stage courtesy of a humiliating defeat against #14 ranked Mercer, Laettner has clearly found solace in taunting his old rivals.

The game tonight is setting up to be a classic and the image of Laettner throwing up the famous "L" sign is already getting Kentucky fans worked up on social media ahead of tip-off with many taking to Twitter to vent their frustration.

We couldn't go the whole article without taking time out to appreciate that famous buzzer-beater one last time so click here to re-live that moment.

Tonight's game is scheduled for a 9.45 ET start in Indianapolis with #4 Louisville starting favorites against their #8 ranked opponents.
