Boogie will compete for his first gold medal tomorrow

gold medal

Tomorrow afternoon Boogie has the chance to become one of several former Kentucky Wildcat basketball players to become an Olympic Gold medalist.

Team USA will meet Serbia for the second time in the Olympic tournament, this time with a gold medal on the line. Tip off will be at 2:45 p.m. tomorrow on NBC. Surprisingly enough, USA hasn’t really blown anyone away in the past two weeks, but has managed to scrape by each time.

If (and when) USA wins tomorrow, DeMarcus Cousins would join Anthony Davis (2012) and Tayshaun Prince (2008) as some former Wildcats who won gold medals. That’s some pretty good company in my opinion.
