John Calipari may be the most famous basketball coach at Kentucky, but Matthew Mitchell is definitely the most entertaining.
For the past several years, Mitchell’s entrance at the Wildcats’ annual Big Blue Madness facilities has featured a musical tribute and an over-the-top dance.
This year’s may have been the best yet. Mitchell showed up dressed as Bruno Mars and performed a rendition of Mars’ “Just the Way You Are,” with the lyrics tailored to Big Blue Nation. Watch the video above.
Mitchell wasn’t the only musical act at Rupp Arena, though.
Drake not only showed up, but dressed in UK warmups and jumped into the Wildcats’ layup line.
