We’re looking for help from Kentucky fans who made it to the 2015 Final Four to see the Cats play their final game in a memorable season.

The Kentucky Wildcats have experienced some exhilarating highs and painful lows in the NCAA Tournament, especially when it comes to the John Calipari era.

There’s probably not a single tournament more indicative of this than the 2015 Big Dance. That was the year Kentucky reeled off 38 straights wins to make it to the Final Four in Indianapolis. The 38th win was easily the sweetest win of the season, as Kentucky and Notre Dame had en epic clash in the Elite Eight before the Cats clawed their way to 68-66 win over the Fighting Irish.

That gave the Cats their fourth trip to the Final Four in a six-year span. That was also the most recent trip for Kentucky in the Final Four, but the way it ended was easily one of the hardest losses to stomach in the program’s storied history.

It came in the National Semifinal Round against the Wisconsin Badgers. While Wisconsin proved to be a worthy opponent that actually looked like the superior team for a good stretch of the game, fans will largely remember that four-point lead Kentucky held late in the game before scoring just four points in the final six minutes, allowing the Badgers to rally for a 71-64 win.

Now, this game is one of three games over the last three seasons getting attention from Vox, which hopes to find fans who attended the game. Kentucky fans who were in attendance for the game and live within about an hour of New York City could be a part of the project. The person or people selected would be part of a video on the experience and would be compensated for their time.

Fans who fit the description and are interested in taking part in the project can email Vox is looking to record the video on February 19.
