The official 2015 Kentucky men’s basketball team posters will be distributed to fans at Big Blue Madness on Friday night and then exclusively available in Kroger stores throughout the state of Kentucky and in parts of southern Indiana beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17.
There are three versions of this year’s poster featuring action shots of all 12 of UK’s scholarship players. Isaiah Briscoe, EJ Floreal, Dominique Hawkins and Isaac Humphries are on one poster; Skal Labissiere, Marcus Lee, Charles Matthews and Jamal Murray are on the second; and Mychal Mulder, Alex Poythress, Tyler Ulis and Derek Willis are on the third.
Fans attending Big Blue Madness at 7 p.m. on Friday will be the first to receive the poster. Each fan will have one version of the poster placed in his/her seat at Rupp Arena, as well as one of two versions of Kentucky’s 2015 women’s basketball poster.
The men’s basketball posters will then be available for free in more than 100 Kroger stores, including every Kentucky location. Limited quantities are available in each store, so fans are recommended to pick up their posters as early as possible after they become available on Saturday. A complete listing of Kroger stores distributing the poster can be found here.
Women’s basketball posters will be available in Kroger stores at a later date. In the meantime, posters can be picked up at the Joe Craft Center Welcome Center.
Big Blue Madness, set for Oct. 16, will feature introductions of both the men’s and women’s basketball teams, practice drills, videos and more. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the event will begin at 7 p.m.
Free tickets for Big Blue Madness, which were distributed last week in-person at Memorial Coliseum and online, sold out in just 25 minutes.
This will be the 11th time Madness has been held at Rupp Arena.
