Only in John Calipari’s universe does the locker room at Rupp Arena warrant a full media tour, yet that is what happened today. We were unable to make it today, but the fine folks at the @UKAthleticsNews twitter tweeted out details. So enjoy the inside look into the bowels of Rupp Arena and experience what the Wildcat warriors are enjoying. All of the pics were tweeted by the UK Athletic News twitter so a big thanks for sharing. The pic above is the entry to the locker-room, along with a replica of the latest NCAA trophy. Here’s a closer look at the trophy. Pretty impressive replica.
In what should be a constantly changing feature, all of Kentucky’s current NBA players are honored. That’s got to be impressive to recruits.
Kentucky will share the space with other sports. This room, off the lockeroom, is designated to be used as recruiting and events for other sports.
The centerpiece of the new logo, is of course the actual floor from last year’s Final Four and National Championship game. And in case any recruits forget who won that Final Four, this banner hangs in the middle of the locker room.
