Lexington Stages "Triumph" for Champs

LEXINGTON, Ky. - A public celebration for the National Champion Kentucky Wildcats is planned for Tuesday afternoon at Rupp Arena. Hundreds of the Big Blue faithful lined up outside Rupp Arena in the early hours Tuesday to get the free tickets for the celebration. The Wildcats' plane is scheduled to touch down at Blue Grass Airport at around 3 p.m.

They will then be whisked away to the event which is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. Kentucky's eighth national championship moves them one step closer to overtaking UCLA for most NCAA titles. The Bruins have 11; their last came back in 1995.
