Vitale Brings Energy To Museum Fundraiser

ESPN Analyst Hits Pontiac Running

PONTIAC, Ill. - Dick Vitale knew all about Pontiac, Michigan but never about the city with the same name in Illinois.

Until Thursday.

The boisterous ESPN college basketball announcer came to Pontiac to help raise money for the Illinois Basketball Museum on Thursday night. And, yes, he's excited.

"They told me some of the ideas that they have with a basketball court and some clinics and bringing teams here and players to demonstrate help young kids," said Vitale. "I think it'll be phenomenal. It'll be awesome baby! With a capital A!"

The museum is expected to open in 2018, although ground has not been broken on the project.
