Get to Know the Wildcats Intro

The University of Kentucky athletic department and UKathletics.com is proud to announce the launching of a new and exciting way for fans to interact with the Wildcats. Beginning March 4, the official athletic website will air "Get to Know the Wildcats," featuring athletes from the 22 varsity sports.
