The College Basketball World Reacts To Dick Vitale’s Proclamation

This week, ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale will return to his roots, calling a major game for the Worldwide Leader.

Vitale hasn’t been able to call any games this season because he is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.

This week, however, that will change.

Dickie V’s doctors have given him permission to call Tuesday night’s game between No.

Gonzaga is ranked No. 1 in the country, and No.

2 UC Berkeley

“My family and I are overjoyed,” Vitale said.

“Knowing I’ll be on the court with all my friends and calling Number 1 versus 2 is the best medicine I could ask for.”

I simply want to express my gratitude for your prayers, messages, phone calls, and texts to each of you.

“They gave me energy and encouraged me during a difficult time in my life – six months of chemo.”

I love my ESPN family, starting with Jimmy Pitaro.

On Tuesday, I will begin my 43rd year.

Finally, thank you to all of my fans for providing me with a career that has surpassed all of my expectations.”

Vitale, who has lymphoma, just finished packing for the game on Tuesday night.

The college basketball world is eagerly awaiting his arrival.

“It’s wonderful to see you again.”

One fan tweeted, “Icon in the industry, keep teaching the young folks with your passion for the sport and all humanity.”

“I wish you a safe and enjoyable trip.

Please look after yourself, and I hope this trip gives you more energy and improves your overall health.

Laugh a little, cry a little, and think a little more.

“Millions of people are thinking of you,” one supporter added.

“An inspiration to us all!” wrote another fan on Twitter. “Love it! Love the fight! Love the heart! Oh, and… KEEP AN EYE MY MARQUETTE FORMERLY WARRIORS BABY!”

On Tuesday night, Vitale will be joined by Dave O’Brien to call the game.

The game will begin at 10 p.m.

ESPN at 10:00 a.m. ET
