🔼 Different Work. The men’s basketball team puts in work on the court every day, but in Philadelphia, they had a new job at hand. The men helped to sort and package up food with Philabundance. Philabundance is a non-profit that seeks to drive hunger from the community and end hunger for good.

🔼 Insider Scoop. Baseball players always have fun stories to tell, and now you can hear them for yourself. Check out the Behind Kentucky Baseball podcast, hosted by Darren Headrick and Darren Williams, with special guest Austin Strickland. The former Kentucky pitcher and current Pittsburgh Pirates prospect joins the show to discuss the MLB Draft process, how he became a college prospect, and share his memories from Kentucky Proud Park. Plus, he apologizes for Harry Potter comments he made in the past.
