 BROOKS - At a recent University of Louisville women’s basketball game versus the University of Connecticut, a crowd of 17,023 fans were entertained with a Cardinal victory.

It was the largest crowd to attend a women’s basketball game in the country during the 2018-19 season.

A different highlight for the record crowd came before the game, when eight-year-old Bullitt County resident Addyson Clarkson, who has been blind since birth, performed The National Anthem.
