Blue-clad fans packed Rupp Arena and watched replays of Kentucky’s 67-59 win over Kansas. Senior Darius Miller carried the NCAA trophy as players stepped off a sleek blue bus parked inside the arena to cheers and screams that are typical at a Wildcats’ home game.
Calipari first thanked the fans and said there were about 5,000 that welcomed the team at the airport. He told them: “You people never cease to amaze me.”
Calipari says Kentucky had “the best players and the best team” this year in the tournament.
