Senior Day is a very special day for UofL senior basketball players. It’s their final home game wearing the Cardinal colors and a chance for them to say goodbye to the home crowd and for the home crowd to say goodbye to them.
In honor of the 6 seniors who will be playing their last game on Denny Crum Court in the KFC Yum! Center, Louisville Athletics is asking fans to wear red to Sunday’s game. Find your nicest red Louisville jerseys, your nicest red Louisville t-shirt, or your nicest red blazer and paint the Yum red for these 6 players.
Those 6 players being honored are Ryan McMahon, Jordan Nwora, Steven Enoch, Fresh Kimble, Keith Oddo, and son of the city Dwayne Sutton. Each player has had extremely wonderful moments in their time here and provided some great memories. Let’s send them out on a high note Sunday.
Fans should arrive at the Yum Center at 5:30 PM for the pregame ceremony. The Senior Day game itself against Virginia Tech will tip at 6 PM.
