Social media reactions to Big Blue Madness

A special night of past, present and future for Kentucky Basketball.

Kentucky Basketball had arguably their best Big Blue Madness in quite some time. Starting with Women’s basketball coach Matthew Mitchell’s dancing and ending with Immanuel Quickley’s dance moves of his own, the Wildcats got to work on the hardwood in front of thousands of fans and many basketball recruits.

To start, head coach John Calipari opened with a polarizing speech followed by the recognition of the 1948, 1949 & 1951 National Championship teams. Then, there was a six-round, three-point contest of which Immanuel Quickley bested Tyler Herro for the crown.

Next, PJ Washington topped high-flying Herro & Keldon Johnson in a wild dunk contest.

For the finale, fans got a glimpse of who will likely start to begin the season as Immanuel Quickley, Keldon Johnson, Nick Richards, PJ Washington & Quade Green suited up for the BLUE team and took down the WHITE team (reserves), 37-21.

In what was a night full of entertainment, here were some reactions via social media.

Kentucky’s next task on the hardwood will come next Sunday in the Blue-White game.
