Kentucky fans match platoons on the floor by switching between white and blue T-shirts (VIDEO)


Top-ranked Kentucky hosted No. 6 Texas on Friday night in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.

Students inside Rupp Arena were equipped with two T-shirts, a blue one and a white tee. Throughout the first half, whenever John Calipari switched his five-man platoons, fans would switch their shirts to the color of the platoon on the floor.

The starters: Andrew and Aaron Harrison, Alex Poythress, Karl-Anthony Towns and Willie Cauley-Stein are known as the white platoon. Reserves, or reinforcements: Tyler Ulis, Devin Booker, Marcus Lee, Trey Lyles and Dakari Johnson are referred to as the blue platoon.

However, later in the first half, with Texas holding the lead, Calipari — like he said he would do — switched up his two lineups.
