The Kentucky Wildcats will honor the late Kobe Bryant tonight when they host the Vanderbilt Commodores inside Rupp Arena.

According to the UK Sports Network, players will be wearing Kobe-inspired warm-up shirts. Some players will even be wearing Kobe-themed shoes tonight.

On Sunday, a helicopter crash in Calabasas (CA) claimed the lives of the 41-year-old Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others who tragically lost their lives.

Since then, various athletes across all sports have been paying tribute to the late Bryant, and UK will be the latest to do so.
