Last night, 24,000 fans once again showed up to Rupp Arena to watch what was basically glorified starting lineup introductions and some practice drills. As a kid I was enamored by this whole thing, but as I get older and older, it has lost it’s luster a little bit. Back when it was Midnight Madness, it was cool.

The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team is taking on the Puerto Rican national team reserves as part of the Big Blue Bahamas Tour.
