Kentucky was playing in front of more than just the Big Blue Nation tonight during its blowout victory over Mississippi State.
During halftime, the 1996 National Championship team was presented with championship rings. Check it out:

But there was another special guest on-hand as well. Kentucky was playing with Andrew Wiggins, who is the No. 1 recruit for 2013, sitting courtside. Wiggins was on his official visit of the university.
Andrew Wiggins will see the 1996 Kentucky team receive national championship rings tonight. I believe that’s what they call “foreshadowing.”
