Simply because of how long it had been since it happened, no one really knew how to act as it became more evident Kentucky was going to lose at home. For most of Saturday afternoon’s game, the fans in Rupp Arena couldn’t help but think their Wildcats would find a way.
It was a reasonable opinion, as they had 55 games and more than three years of evidence to back it up.
As the minutes ticked away and visiting Baylor maintained a lead, the UK faithful and the team they were supporting battled. But in the end, the Bears held on for a 64-55 victory to end the nation’s longest home winning streak.
