NCAA Championship Floor Going to Kentucky
LEXINGTON, KY - It's not Big Blue Madness yet, but the Kentucky Wildcats are taking the floor. Literally.
The basketball court from the Superdome where Kentucky won its eighth national championship last spring is being delivered to Rupp Arena on Wednesday.
The center court logo as well as a large section of the floor will be installed in the locker rooms, which are under renovation.
Northwestern Mutual purchased the floor and donated it to UK and will deliver it in a special truck.
In addition to being used in the locker rooms, part of the floor will be used to raise funds for charity.
