Coach Skinner joins us for our third installment of Coaches Corner. Kentucky faces Mississippi State at Rupp Arena on Friday. The match will take place at 5 p.m. ET to kick off a full night of UK events in Rupp Arena. It will also mark the first regular-season UK volleyball match to take place in Rupp Arena in school history.
"We are thrilled to be playing as a part of Big Blue Madness and have it be the first time our program has played in historic Rupp Arena," UK coach Craig Skinner said. "Having a chance to break the national attendance record in the sport of volleyball and expose new fans to our program is a fantastic opportunity. I want to thank all involved for including this match as a part of this great event."
In addition to the volleyball match, Big Blue Madness is the first open practice opportunity for Kentucky's 2012-13 men's and women's basketball teams. This will be the eighth time Madness has been held at Rupp Arena. Fans will be allowed to enter Rupp Arena beginning at 4 p.m. the night of Big Blue Madness.
