Davion Mintz and Kellan Grady get true My Old Kentucky Home sendoff

Last season Davion Mintz didn’t get to fully appreciate what it means to be sent off as a Wildcat for life on Senior Night. Despite participating in a mock one that was not the true Rupp experience the  Creighton graduate transfer decide to return for another season and get the proper sendoff he deserved.

He had to bear the burden of trying to get last year’s team to a finish line that could not come fast enough. This year with his role not so demanding he has been able to enjoy the ride so much more.

When he knocked in a three-pointer and the camera showed his dad standing up and applauding his son it was a moment all of BBN could be proud of.

On the other wing Davidson graduate transfer, Kellan Grady was able to soak in the admiration of his final rowdy Rupp Arena crowd as well.

Neither stuffed the stat sheet or had career nights, but they as usual played an intricate role in the Wildcat victory.

Grady got his team off to a fast early start dropping in a 3-pointer and coasted the rest of the way to finish with 9 points.

Mintz sank a pair from behind the arc to tally 8 points, handed out two assists, and had a steal.

Without their veteran leadership, this team would not be where it is today.
