Kentucky, fans revel in Big Blue Madness
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP)
Repeating his take that Kentucky fans are crazy during Big Blue Madness, Wildcats coach John Calipari also acknowledged their justification to go wild.
And as a group of Wildcats legends raised the school's eighth national championship banner to the Rupp Arena rafters Friday night, so did fans' enthusiasm.
Calipari marked the start of practice by recognizing the latest contribution to Kentucky's proud tradition, hoping it motivates this year's squad to continue it.
Kentucky's latest recruits appeared ready to do that.
Cauley-Stein's White squad held off Noel's Blue team 56-55 in the scrimmage.
Kentucky opens Nov. 9 against Maryland.
