A Kentucky basketball game made an appearance in Sunday night’s new episode of Crashing on HBO. In a scene shot in the Olive Tree Cafe (one of my go-to spots in New York City FYI), the game can be seen in the background on the two televisions above the bar.
Upon closer inspection, the mid-court logo on the Rupp Arena court is the old logo, so it is not a recent game. We last saw that logo during the 2015-16 season, so the most recent it can be is from the Ulis/Murray era.
The episode was filmed last fall, so how did the old game make its way to the Olive Tree’s televisions during filming? Is there a UK fan working behind the scenes on the show? We need answers!
