Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

The team explains their love of Super Smash Bros.


The players let the Kentucky Wildcats TV cameras into their hotel room Friday night in Louisville for a glimpse at the intense Super Smash Bros. battles that occupy them in their free time. Andrew Harrison said the game is good because it keeps their minds off of basketball when they’re cooped up in the hotel.

For fans, this is a reminder that these guys are still kids, carrying the weight of college basketball on their shoulders when they’re not playing Nintendo 64.

Things we learned from the video:

— Brian Long is the best
— EJ Floreal cheats
— Alex Poythress owns the Nintendo 64
— Andrew Harrison is very excited about being the third best
— First and second place stay, third and fourth give up their controllers
— The ship helped EJ, of course

    It really is a fun game…I played it with my kids for years, and we had some epic battles.

    Off subject, but a replay of the Cinci game is on CBS Network now if you did not DVR the first time around. The Hampton replay was on before this one. Cinci just went up 20 to 19, but Trey just hit 2 freebies. The suspense is killing me! (Kidding)

    This is even more proof that UK pays players. Look at that sweet game system that Alex has. Just ignore that it was state of the art when the cats were winning the championship in 1996.

    LOVE love love this. One of the many benefits of this unique season: BBN gets all the behind the scenes footage and special coverage of our team that we want, because we are ALWAYS in the spotlight.

    I love seeing the players behind the scene, just being college kids goofing around and playing video games. More videos like this, please!
