Kentucky Basketball’s candlelight vigil for Terrence Clarke

Just one day after losing their teammate Terrence Clarke in a tragic car accident, the Kentucky Basketball team banded together to honor his memory with a candlelight vigil outside the Wildcat Coal Lodge. The public was invited to attend, and our photographer Dr. Michael Huang captured these heartbreaking images of a group who has already been through so much trying to grapple with another unimaginable loss.

UPDATE: Here is video from the event from Bradley McKee.

    Thank you Dr. Huang. The faces of the teammates, as well as other young UK students, show the hurt and sometimes the cruel brevity of life. All of us in BBN nation mourn and grieve together. RIP TC

    When the team honors the memory of Terrence Clarke they should open up all the doors to Rupp Arena. UK fans by the thousands go to the Arena, inside and outside, and we give Terrence the ovation he never got to get while at UK. FIFTY THOUSAND UK fans chanting his name to the heavens so he can hear it.

    This puts in life and basketball in perspective. When people get on here and speak negatively about our players, they need to realize these are just kids and are someone’s child. They came to play the game of basketball at the greatest institution of all time and we must remember they are human just like us. Godspeed TC and thank you for wearing the blue and white proudly.

      Well said. It’s one thing to critique a player but the things I saw being said on here about Terrence and other players and coaches went way below mature adult behavior. These young people should be treated as you would want your own children to be treated. If that doesn’t make sense to you there is something missing in you.

    Give thanks to God for every blessing, Big and small. God will see us through. We aren’t guaranteed a single second he on earth, so live with joy in your hearts, be kind and forgive easily. Rest In Peace, #5.

    If Boston was in fact in the front car racing through the yellow light and TC was just trying to keep up…that makes this whole scenario even more tragic.
