Kentucky doesn’t play UCLA until late Friday night, but the fun really starts on Thursday at the open practice. Kentucky will hold its open practice Thursday at 3:00 p.m. CT at the FedEx Forum in downtown Memphis, which is where the regional games will also be played. It’s open to the public and the media, so if you’re around, come on out to enjoy it and say hi to me, Drew, Matt, and Ryan.
If you haven’t been to one yet, the open practice isn’t really practice, it’s just a glorified warm-up session. But, the team does ham it up for the crowd with dunks, threes, and the traditional halfcourt shot. They also end every open practice by going around and slapping fans’ hands, which always turns out to be a cool moment:
