Dickie V’s back baby!

For the first time since being diagnosed with lymphoma, Dick Vitale made his return courtside for Gonzaga (No.1) and UCLA (No.2) on ESPN last night.

Vitale and his broadcasting partner Dave O’Brien highlighted just how much it meant for the ESPN vet to not only be in Las Vegas for the game, but to be sitting courtside again with his headset on.

Vitale is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment for lymphoma.
