Tyler Ulis was a star today, putting up 21 points, dishing out 8 assists, and playing all but one minute of the game. As it always is for big games, Rupp Arena was electric today, and after the game, Tyler Ulis told me it was the loudest he’s ever heard it.
“Yes, it was insane. They were — I’ve never seen anything like it. It was a very fun game. They helped us out with our energy because we didn’t have to do much to be energetic, the crowd was so loud. It was just a lot of fun to play in.”
John Calipari wasn’t surprised by the raucous atmosphere, telling reporters “this is what Rupp Arena is.”
“No, this is Rupp Arena. I don’t even — this is what Rupp Arena is. I just look up, I think it’s 2:22, to make sure there’s people in those upper deck seats and there are. They’re packed in there. So we’re good.”
Yes, we are.
