KSR learned today that Kentucky has acquired the floor from the 2012 Final Four in the Superdome. In case you’ve somehow forgotten, Kentucky beat Louisville and Kansas on that floor to win its eighth NCAA Championship. It was awesome. There was confetti and happiness everywhere. Coach Cal couldn’t stop smiling.
Anyway, the university is planning to use the floor in the new locker room in Rupp Arena that is currently under construction. That way, players will have a constant reminder of what they’re trying to reach while they get ready before each home game.
It sounds like that locker room is going to be “the gold standard” of locker rooms.
