LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kenny Payne's visits to Louisville in the
two decades since he played for the Cardinals have typically been
celebrations, a chance for the former small forward and his
teammates on the 1986 national championship team to be cheered one
more time.
Things will likely be different on Friday. Very different.
When Payne walks onto the floor at the KFC Yum! Center on New
Year's Eve he won't be wearing Louisville red, but guiding the
players in Kentucky blue. Payne, now one of John Calipari's
assistant coaches, will be on bench with the 11th-ranked Wildcats
when they play the 22nd-ranked Cardinals.
Payne admits he's a little curious about how he'll be received.
Payne thinks the fans will boo him, but that they'll get over it
eventually.
