Weekend Video: Louisville cheerleader almost costs team the game

During the Louisville-Pittsburgh basketball game, a male cheerleader made a conveniencing argument for the sport of cheerleading by almost costing his team the game. With .5 seconds left in overtime, Louisville’s Kyle Kuric dunked the ball to give the Cardinals a 62-57 lead. In the heat of the moment, a Louisville male cheerleader ran on to the court and threw the ball into the air to celebrate …. causing the Cardinals to get a technical foul, which meant two free throws for Pitt. While Louisville ended up winning the game, the cheerleader’s team spirit further tarnished cheerleading’s reputation, but if a cheerleader can lose a game doesn’t that mean it’s a sport?
