Win Or Lose, UK Plans Public Celebration For Wildcats

Apr 7, 2014

Kentucky has announced that it will celebrate the Wildcats' successful season on Tuesday at Rupp Arena.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team has announced its non-conference schedule for the upcoming season.

The Wildcats will play exhibition games versus Northwood and Transylvania before opening the season November 9 against Maryland as part of the Barclays Center Classic. That game will be followed by another neutral-court matchup against Duke on November 13.

Kentucky takes on nine non-conference teams at Rupp Arena, five of which had losing records last season.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - It may not be the most stunning trophy in the sports world, but the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team isn’t shy about showing off its national championship trophy.

Over the past month the wood and gold-plated trophy has been kissed by the players, sat in the Cincinnati Reds dugout, and this week a Lexington baker even made a cake that looks like the trophy. It's made stops across the state from Ashland to Paducah.

Miller Leads UK Over Georgia in Senior Night Win

Mar 2, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky.  Darius Miller hit five 3-pointers and finished with 17 points, and Kentucky beat Georgia 79-49 on Thursday night to extend the nation's longest home winning streak to 52 games.

"We all had it going. We all had a lot of fun tonight," Miller said. "I think that's how it should be in our last home game."

Kentucky (29-1, 15-0 Southeastern Conference) made an emphatic statement in its final game at Rupp Arena this season with an offensive flurry that nearly equaled the furious defensive effort the Wildcats have given all season.
