Kentucky: A Family-First Program

03/30/2015 07:39 PM

After Kentucky’s clutch victory over Notre Dame Saturday night to move to 38-0 and on to the Final Four for the second consecutive season (and 4 out of the last 5), anyone watching witnessed the closeness of this unbeaten squad. Not only were the players hugging and celebrating the victory, but the real families of each of the players were right alongside of them. When a team performs as well and unselfishly as this group, one has to assume a strong support system is responsible. One that is able to see the bigger picture beyond minutes and stats.

KSTV’s Thomas Beisner and Mark Krebs talk about the typical role of family in college athletics, and why the families this year for UK are something special.
