When it was announced Kentucky would not be playing Louisville on Wednesday night, the Cats scrambled to find a new opponent, which turned out to be WKU. The teams were coming together to play and to donate more proceeds to tornado relief.

One other special moment occurred when students from the Ohio County High School JROTC would be there to present the colors in pregame ceremonies.

Kentucky won the game over the Hilltoppers, 95-60. More tornado relief fundraising happened Wednesday night with a toy drive and another $100,000 was raised adding to the $3 million the Cats raised during a telethon last week.
