Wildcat Quickies: Upgrades for Everyone Edition

New, 45 comments

All the athletic programs are getting all kinds of upgrades.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky Blue-White Game Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

It seems like all the athletic programs at Kentucky are getting upgrades to their facilities. Obviously the football program has gone all out in renovating Commonwealth Stadium and building the new training facility, but other programs are getting upgrades as well. The basketball program is having upgrades done on the Joe Craft Center, which includes retina scanners! That’s right, the latest and greatest in eye-tracking technology is being put to use at the basketball facility. Also, the baseball program is getting an entirely new stadium, which the University will break ground on in February. On top of all that, there’s of course the massive new scoreboard in Rupp Arena, along with the new court. Safe to say it’s a great time to be a Wildcat athlete.
