Men's Basketball defeats Georgia Tech, 67-53A lot happened yesterday in Rupp for a short span of time. Obviously there was a game that went on but there's a lot to it.
PregameFirst, I don't think Drew was up to the idea of the white pom poms in the lower arena: https://twitter.com/DrewFranklinKSR/status/1205941314505887744?s=20 https://twitter.com/DrewFranklinKSR/status/1205975220642865158?s=20 Next, Dontaie Allen finally received his 2019 Kentucky Mr. Basketball ring https://twitter.com/KentuckyMBB/status/1205971876222324741?s=20 Then, like an every year tradition, the National Anthem was not sung by one person, but an entire arena! (Couldn't find a video but the picture is still amazing!) https://twitter.com/KentuckyMBB/status/1205974183722786818?s=20
Football team makes an appearenceWhat a fitting way it was to celebrate the football team's success on the last game before the holiday break! It seems like a yearly tradition now but man, that trophy looks more beautiful every time I see it. https://twitter.com/UKFootball/status/1206007114466045953?s=20 Also, to celebrate the fourth bowl game in a row, the Cats decided to throw some footballs into the crowd. Let me tell you, it took a lot of restraint from me to not grab one of these in a sneaky bathroom break scheme before they went on. They were right there and I never got it... I will regret that for a long time! Looked too good! If you want to see what footballs being thrown looked like in Rupp, then here is KSR's Maggie Davis' video of the whole situation! https://twitter.com/MaggieDavisKSR/status/1205975662584049665?s=20

Let me tell you something though, that was such an emotional speech. I couldn't get through it without tearing up. If you can get a chance to go back and watch it, you should. https://youtu.be/Zq68naJBdW0 What a night for the former Ohio State transfer! Congrats Joe! And for one night only... https://twitter.com/HardFactorWill/status/1206027845086003201?s=20
