Rupp Arena may be the place Kentucky fans consider the temple of Kentucky basketball, but over the last five years, the Joe Craft Center has become a home away from home for the program. It’s an incredible facility that pays tribute to the history of the Wildcats in every way imaginable. And it just got better. An eighth banner has been added to the wall of the main floor.
Symmetry has been restored to the facility, making for an amazing sight that recognizes both the past and the present of basketball’s best team. The new banner is more stylized and visually appealing than the primary one hanging in Rupp Arena, featuring a subtle trophy in the background. It’s also hung from a really cool valance.
It’s easy to forget that Kentucky claimed a national championship just one short month ago, and this is a nice reminder that it’s never been better to be a Wildcat.
