I think its pretty cool to go there wearing your colors and cheer the kids on. I know when UK has a commit in this tournament they flood the gyms with blue. Would be nice to see a bunch of red!
Either way, its a great tournament and a great chance to watch good solid basketball!
Have fun and I hope you go!
