Knott County Health and Rehabilitation staff and residents donned Kentucky blue as they prepared to watch the Wildcats take on Kansas State in the Sweet 16 on Thursday night. Equipped with pom poms and the facility decorated with blue and white balloons, the crew joined residents in eating pizza and game day snacks to cheer on their Wildcats.
Kentucky is the No. 5 seed and is trying to make their first Final Four since 2015. If they win, they will advance to the Elite Eight and face the winner of Loyola-Chicago and Nevada. Head coach John Calipari has never lost in the Sweet 16 as the coach of the Wildcats.
Here’s hoping the Cats can win a couple of more so the Big Blue Nation can cheer them on in the Final Four and then possibly winning their ninth championship in program history.
