The 2017 edition of Big Blue Madness was quite the spectacle, most would say the best show in years. We had the Blue Carpet style entrance, pyrotechnics, great introduction videos, Coach Cal’s speech, Drake’s grand entrance, oh and there was some basketball too. Let’s take a look back at a fun night at Rupp Arena courtesy of KSR photographer, Dr. Michael Huang.

Let’s face it, there’s no Big Blue Madness without Matthew Mitchell’s latest dance routine. This year’s edition saw some Cha Cha, Electric Slide, and perhaps the best one, the Wobble.

Not too many people can upstage Kentucky’s basketball team during Big Blue Madness, but I think we found someone who can: Drake. The Grammy award winning rapper served as a honorary coach. The second he walked in the building all eyes were on him even when the team was scrimmaging. He made the crowd go nuts when he announced he wanted to return for a free concert for UK students.

The Big Blue Madness scrimmage featured plenty of dunks. This team is full of crazy long athletes. The potential of this team on the defensive end is scary. Expect to see a lot of blocked shots and tipped passes this season. Throughout the scrimmage, we saw why Coach Cal uses the word “positionless” when describing players on his team. Guys like Kevin Knox, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, PJ Washington, Wenyen Gabriel, and Hamidou Diallo should be nightmares for opponents. Should be a fun season. Enjoy!
