UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKYBy John Byun
The Kentucky Wildcats finished off with a record of 22-12, second disappointing season in a row. Similar to the year before, the team entered the NCAA tournament as a #8 seed where they were able to win their 1st round game, but came up short in the second round to a #1 seed. This time their opponent was a Kansas team that was just too athletic for the Wildcats.
The UK provides many special activities for students such as art, sports(football, soccer, etc), hiking, and many more.
Fun Facts: 1. Kentucky leads the NCAA in NCAA tournament appearances, NCAA tournament wins, NCAA tournament games, and ranks second to UCLA in NCAA championships with 7.
2. The University of Kentucky Library maintains more than 2.5 million volumes, the 49th largest collection in the country.
