🔼 Cup Secured. The Wildcats finished their regular season with a 38-31 victory over No. 9 Louisville to keep the Governor’s Cup. The dynamic duo of the game was Devin Leary and Ray Davis. Leary passed for three touchdowns, and Davis scored three touchdowns. But let’s start from the beginning of the game. Jawhar Jordan scored the first touchdown from a one-yard rush. Dane Key was the next Cat in the end zone, catching a nine-yard pass.

Barion Brown went the full 100 yards on a kickoff return for a touchdown to start the second half. Then Davis finished out the game with two 20-yard touchdown passes and a 37-yard rush touchdown. Alex Raynor was spot on, making five extra points and a 46-yard field goal.

 🔼 Points, Points, Points. The men’s basketball team put up a whole lot of, you guessed it, points during its domination over Marshall. The team scored 69 points in the first half, which is the most points ever scored by any team in a half at Rupp Arena history. 

The final score of 118-82 marks the most points ever scored by a John Calipari-coached Kentucky team. D.J. Wagner led the Cats with 28 points, and Antonio Reeves had 23. 


Keeping the Cup in Lexington! The Governor’s Cup is a huge game for the Wildcats and Saturday’s win keeps the trophy in Lexington for another year.

Senior Day Slay. The volleyball team swept the No. 20 Gators during its Senior Day game to end the regular season. Reagan Rutherford showed out with a team-high of 15 kills to propel the Cats to claim sole possession of the Southeastern Conference championship. Kentucky won the league by two matches with an overall 19-7 standing and 16-1 conference record.
