People flocked to Rupp Arena Monday hoping to cheer the cats on to victory against Florida, but there wasn't a basketball player to be found.

They were there to take part in the Big Blue Slam, one of the Kentucky Blood Center's annual donation drives.

Those that donated to the first blood drive the Center has held at Rupp were able to hit the hardwood through the players entrance of the arena and take a shot on the court where the cats play.

Organizers say their supplies have been running low and this the main reason for that is people having trouble getting out to donate in the winter weather.

If you want to help compete in the Big Blue Slam, you can donate at the Kentucky Blood Center through Friday.
