Actress Ashley Judd has been one of the most visible supporters of Kentucky basketball over the years, showing up to games in Lexington and around the country.
No way was she going to miss seeing the Wildcats face Louisville at the Final Four in the Big Easy.
Sitting in the front row behind Kentucky's bench inside the Superdome, Judd was decked out in blue and white as she awaited the most-anticipated game in the heated in-state rivalry with the Cardinals.
"It's just wonderful for the state," she said. "This is like the good ol' days. This is about history, it's about family. It's very special."
