UK Basketball:2012 National Champions

Well if you know me, you know I absolutely love Kentucky basketball; and in case you didn't know, WE ARE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS ONCE AGAIN!  I am too excited and overwhelmed to think or write about anything else, so I decided to share some of my favorite photos from the championship last night, as well as some classic UK basketball photos from the past.
