Any other year, this would be Senior Night at Rupp Arena; however, for the first time since World War II, there are no seniors on Kentucky’s roster. That’s pretty crazy when you think about it, but it’s even crazier when you take into consideration that, in an alternate reality, Karl Towns, Tyler Ulis, Devin Booker, and Trey Lyles would be playing their final game at Rupp tonight. Now an NBA All-Star, Karl honored the moment on Twitter this afternoon:

Devin wants to know if he can start:


If you need a reminder of what those four are doing in the NBA right now, here are their current averages:

  • Karl Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves: 20.3 points, 12.3 rebounds
  • Trey Lyles, Denver Nuggets: 10.9 points, 5.1 rebounds
  • Tyler Ulis, Phoenix Suns: 6.8 points, 3.9 assists, 1.6 rebounds
  • Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns: 24.7 points, 4.8 assists, 4.6 rebounds

Shedding a few tears is a Senior Night tradition, so turn down the sound on the top video, crank it up on the second and let the memories roll over you:
