Rupp Arena was rockin’ throughout the game and Calipari acknowledged that in his postgame press conference. He said, “This was as good of a crowd and as impactful of a crowd as I’ve coached in a building. This team needs that.”
He thanked the fans who stuck around for his radio show for bringing the noise Saturday night.
Missouri head coach Frank Haith also spoke highly of Big Blue Nation after the game. He credited the “energy in the building” for Kentucky’s rally after falling behind by double digits in the first half.
Pat yourself on the back, #BBN. It was a great environment in Rupp Arena.
