Good morning. The year is wrapping up, and the swim and dive team looked back to see which artist they had on repeat. Watch this video to see if more athletes listened to Taylor Swift or Zach Bryan.

What else are we mixing into today’s Brew?

🏈 Zion Childress will return
🏀 Tyrese Maxey visits the Wildcats
🔵 And much, much more!


🔼 Childress Comeback. With just one year of eligibility left, Zion Childress is staying at Kentucky to continue his football career. The defensive back played and started 12 games this season. He had 51 tackles, 36 being solo, two tackles for loss and one sack. Childress has played at Kentucky since 2022, so we are excited to see him return for a third year.

🔼 Maxey’s Back. In case you missed it, Tyrese Maxey visited the men’s basketball team at the Wells Fargo Center during its game against Penn. Maxey is a Kentucky basketball alumnus who is now playing for the Philadelphia 76ers. Maxey talked about his favorite memories while at Kentucky and how life has been in the NBA.


Throwback Tuesday. Tyrese Maxey played at Kentucky not too long ago. He was only here for one season, but he made a big impact on the team before hitting the big leagues.

Today’s question— what season did Maxey play at Kentucky?
