The Joe Craft center has been used by Kentucky to attract recruits and train players since it opened back in January of 2007. Today, the Kentucky basketball practice facility and national championship basketball team that practices there attracted the 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton.
Clinton is in town to speak to Fayette County students in Rupp Arena and wanted to meet the Men’s National Championship basketball team, Kentucky Wildcats and the school and players happily obliged.
They took pictures, did a tour of the building, and relived the 1995 game where John Calipari’s UMass team beat Clinton’s Arkansas National Championship team. After the visit, coach John Calipari said that the Razorback fan left with lots of National Championship memorabilia and a signed picture frame featuring the above picture of him with the team.
Just another fun filled, happy memory for the team still together for a few more weeks.
On a side note – Terrence Jones, are those your CRAZY eyes or are you really that happy to see Mr Clinton?
