University looking for name for wildcat sculpture

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The bronze wildcat sculpture that was dedicated on the University of Kentucky campus just as the men's basketball team was becoming national champion last spring needs a name, and officials are turning to students to help find one.

The 7-foot-tall sculpture is in Wildcat Alumni Plaza across Avenue of Champions from Memorial Coliseum. The UK Alumni Association said before the dedication that the plaza is a place to connect students, alumni and others to UK.

To suggest a name, visit http://www.ukalumni.net/dontcallmefluffy and complete the form by Sept. 7. Voting will be from Sept. 17 to Oct. 8, with the winner announced on Oct. 15 at the homecoming pep rally in the plaza.
