Tour the new UK basketball locker room and lounge


Kentucky basketball’s new Marksbury Players First Suite and Healy Family Locker Room are finally complete as part of the major renovation of the team’s practice facility.

We got a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the new digs via a video tour on UK’s official Twitter account. If you pay close attention, you can read the message John Calipari is trying to get through to his team:

It reads:

Make getting better every day your goal; TOUGH PLAYERS come to work every day to get better, and keep their horizons short. They meet victory and defeat the same way: They get up the next day and go to WORK to be better than they were the day before. Tough players hate losing but are not shaken or deterred by a loss. Tough players enjoy winning but are NEVER SATISFIED. For tough players, a championship or a trophy is not a goal; it is a destination.

THE GOAL IS TO GET BETTER EVERY DAY.

Always with the toughness.

There is also a new interactive media wall to celebrate the players, both past and present, with a touchscreen!

A quick pan of the shower shows that the players use Head & Shoulders anti-dandruff shampoo, which is nice because it has the 3-Action Formula that cleans to remove oil and flakes; protects the scalp from dandruff; and moisturizes each hair strand from scalp to tip.

I believe that is the Head & Shoulders Ocean Lift with sea mineral essence and cooling mint to really invigorate the hair and scalp, but I could be wrong. It’s a little blurry.

The video also gives us a sneak peek into the team’s snack cabinet, which includes the No. 1 necessity for all college students: Kraft Easy Mac.

Go Cats.

    I’m 37, white, 6′ tall, and have already graduated college twice, but I may start training tomorrow to try out for the team next year as a walk-on. Those locker rooms are worth it.
