Kentucky fans had their first glimpse of this year’s men’s and women's basketball teams last Friday during the annual Big Blue Madness kickoff event. This coming weekend, they’ll see another glimpse during the annual Blue-White game. Although this year, that game won’t be played in Rupp Arena.
Instead, the Blue-White game will be held at the Appalachian Wireless Arena in Pikeville, KY. The scrimmage will be played on Saturday night at 6PM. This is in effort to draw support for the Eastern Kentucky flood victims who were impacted by the natural disaster back in late July.
If you’re interested in assisting someone impacted by the flooding from this summer, you can click the linked Tweet below to learn more on how your contribution can allow Wildcats fans in Eastern Kentucky to attend Saturday night’s scrimmage.
