On CoachCal.com, Jon Hood looks back on a memorable Senior Night and reflects upon his five years at UK:
“Without wasting any time, let’s just get right into it.
Tuesday night was a special experience for me. Arriving here five years ago at basically the same time Coach Cal did and finally ending my college career at Rupp was – I wouldn’t say emotional – but very special for me. It brought back a lot of memories.
Yesterday was the first time when it really hit me that Senior Night was the last time I was going to be able to wear the white jersey at home. It hit me walking from class to shoot-around that this was the last shoot-around at home. I started thinking about all the guys I’ve played with over the years and who would have been there with me Senior Night had they stuck around. I thought about who would have been with me had I stayed four years and who would have been with me this year – guys like Brandon and Terrence.”
