Kentucky has one of the most passionate fan bases in the country, known better as Big Blue Nation. Actress Ashley Judd is one of the more recognizable UK fans, but it’s recording artist Drake, who has become one of the more visible supporters recently.

Monday night, Kentucky’s incredible NCAA tournament run was ended by UConn in a 60-54 loss. This is how he looked following the game:

The UConn Twitter account, which earlier this tournament offered President Barack Obama a spot on the bandwagon after the Huskies beat his national champion pick, Michigan State, in the Elite 8, decided to kick Drake while he was down.

Late Night in the Phog is typically a night to remember for Kansas fans. For Kansas student Jerrod Martin Castro, Friday night’s event is one he won’t forget.

Castro, a sophomore, was selected as a contestant for a $10,000 giveaway. The only thing standing in the way of a big payday was a half-court shot. Brennan Bechard, the Kansas director of basketball operations, attempted the long-distance shot and hit nothing but net.

Kansas head coach Bill Self signed a $10,000 check on the spot.
