Please Have Fun and Celebrate Responsibly as the Wildcats Advance through the NCAA Tournament!

With the Men's Basketball Team's advancement to the Elite Eight, I encourage you to Bear Down With Pride and show your support of the team. Wear your red and blue, gather with friends to watch the games, and win or lose, please be responsible, safe and smart.
