Hamidou Diallo had been in Rupp Arena before, but never when Kentucky had a basketball game. That changed Saturday when Kentucky hosted Auburn and Diallo’s, UK’s newest signee, not only was on the bench in street clothes for the game, but he also took some shots before the game.
“For him to be in there, he was excited. That’s what I asked him. He had been to other college basketball games — been to great atmospheres. So I think for him it was neat to see it,” said Kentucky assistant coach Joel Justus.
