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: Herw are the 96 team rings RT @kendrickhaskins: Walter McCarty’s National Championship ring. #bbn twitter.com/KendrickHaskin… — Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) February 28, 2013 Turner on Calipari embracing the ’96 guys: “I sometimes wish he was my coach.” — Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_CJ) February 28, 2013 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.” — Not Jerry Tipton (@NotJerryTipton) February 27, 2013 — Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_CJ) February 28, 2013 Didn’t know Andrew Wiggins was a quadruplet! #gocats @taylordickk @kmac1993 @ayyxitsxpaygeex twitter.com/mo_forsee/stat… — Morgan Forsee (@mo_forsee) February 28, 2013 Nice Timing.
