Coach Stoops was the honorary recipient of the game ball following his first win at the University of Kentucky. Senior captain Avery Williamson presented Stoops with the ball after the game, and that’s when the moment sunk in.
“It really hit me at that moment,” Stoops said of receiving the ball from his first win as a head coach. “That was a ‘WOW’ moment. I hadn’t been there before as a head coach.”
Stoops said he has a lot of family in town so they’ll celebrate tonight, but it’s back to work first thing in the morning. He has a pretty big game back here in Commonwealth next Saturday, in case you didn’t know.
“We’re looking forward to it,” he said.
