Rupp Arena

Rupp Arena

Arguably the most storied arena in college basketball, Rupp Arena is the home of champions. The 23,000-seat arena, which is routinely filled beyond capacity from rafter to rafter, has helped the men's basketball team to a 478-60 record (88.8 winning percentage) and four national championships during its 36-year existence. The Cats have won 23 attendance titles at Rupp Arena, including seven in a row and in 16 of the last 17 seasons.

“I love Rupp Arena. It oozes history and tradition … on the inside. It has the feel of a basketball cathedral. Rupp is big, it is loud and it is intimidating. Kentucky wins at Rupp because the Wildcats are really good, but also because of Rupp.” —Jay Bilas, ESPN analyst
