Kentucky Celebrated Final Four Berth With Jay-Z

by March 28, 2011

Jigga was in the Kentucky locker room last night for some reason, and the players were understandably excited. From the Courier-Journal: “Darius Miller never pictured meeting Jay-Z. And the University of Kentucky forward certainly didn’t suspect an encounter with the rap legend would be the second-biggest thing to happen that day. But on Sunday, Miller and his UK teammates met the platinum-selling artist in the locker room minutes after advancing to the Final Four with a 76-69 win against North Carolina in the NCAA Tournament East Regional final. ‘That in itself was a pretty nice experience to add on to (the Final Four),’ Miller said. ‘Going to the Final Four (is bigger) by far. But still, Jay-Z. It’s crazy. This whole day has been crazy. I’m still taking it all in.’ Jay-Z, a Brooklyn, N.Y., native, is a partial owner of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets. UK spokesman DeWayne Peevy said his visit to the UK locker room wasn’t planned in advance.”
