Former Kentucky Wildcat and current Michigan Wolverine, Charles Matthews, will compete in the Final Four vs. Loyola-Chicago this Saturday.
Following Michigan’s win vs. Florida State on Saturday, Kentucky head coach John Calipari released a tweet congratulating Matthew’s on being named the West Region’s Most Outstanding Player and for reaching the Final Four. A couple of days later, Matthews responded to his former head coach. Pretty classy from both sides.
Appreciate it Coach. Love you my guy. @UKCoachCalipari

While that moment back and forth is great, the replies to Matthew’s tweet will make you even more proud to be a Kentucky fan. For a fan base that receives a lot of hate for the few negative fans that show themselves on social media, the replies to Matthew’s were positive.
Good luck from all #BBN EVEN FROM OHIO
