Members of Kentucky's 1996 national championship returned to Rupp Arena on Wednesday night for a special ceremony. Members of the team known as "The Untouchables" received title rings the players designed themselves in a ceremony at halftime of UK's win over Mississippi State.

"They sacrificed more than any team I'd ever seen When you talk about guys getting 20 minutes who deserved 40 minutes and accepting it, it was incredible," John Calipari said. "Anytime I see them, they're always kind to us and this program. I'm just happy that the university stepped up and did what they did. I think it shows a lot that we do reach back. If there's anything that we can make right, we do."

Check out the video above to see the ring ceremony. If you didn't see our story from earlier in the week about the '96 team getting rings, check it out here.
