Rupp Arena is used to seeing some change on the basketball court, as highly-touted freshman have cycled in and out of John Calipari’s Kentucky teams.
But the actual Rupp Arena is undergoing some changes of its own today.
The Rupp Arena twitter account tweeted out that part of the Arena is getting painted blue, to match the Kentucky colors.

Rupp Arena first opened in 1976 and is the largest basketball arena in the country. In addition to Kentucky home games, the arena has hosted several NCAA Tournament games and concerts from the likes of Taylor Swift and Pearl Jam.
Under Calipari, the Wildcats have lost only four times at Rupp Arena, with the last time coming back in 2013-14 season to Arkansas.
