It can’t be a college basketball season without the legendary Dick Vitale on the sidelines calling a game. Vitale is in a battle with cancer, but that isn’t stopping the college basketball icon from calling one of the year’s biggest matchups.

ESPN reported on Thursday that the legendary broadcaster will return to the sidelines when the number one Gonzaga Bulldogs take on the number two UCLA Bruins in a heavyweight matchup on Tuesday. Vitale will be starting his 43rd year with ESPN calling college basketball games. Vitale is a mainstay in college basketball, and when you see him calling a game, you know it is a heavyweight matchup.

Vitale has stayed in strong spirits with his recent cancer battle and has shared his recent chemotherapy treatments with his fans on Twitter. Vitale has been a strong supporter of cancer research throughout the years, raising millions of dollars through the Jimmy V Foundation to honor his late friend and former national championship coach Jim Valvano.

The college basketball world can hardly wait for Tuesday night to hear Vitale’s voice once again. Vitale already knows this, but it is worth repeating, Dicky V is college basketball, and everyone around the country is pulling for him in his battle with cancer.
