It might be the sweetest tradition in all of college basketball: finishing off the word "Kentucky" as the "Y" at Rupp Arena. On Wednesday night, former UK superstar John Wall got that opportunity.
Wall is in his rookie season in the NBA, after being drafted first overall by the Wizards this past summer. And while the point guard is averaging 15 points and 9 assists per game, with a 13-37 record this season, he and the Wizards have had their problems along the way.
The one-and-done star came back to UK Wednesday to surprise fans, but he also wanted to give this year's Wildcats' team a boost.
