After a rough loss to Vanderbilt in the SEC Championship Game, the Cats landed at Blue Grass Airport around 7:30 Sunday night.
They were greeted by dozens of dedicated, Solid Blue fans.
Many in the crowd told ABC 36 that they were glad the SEC Tourney is over.
They say it's time for the Cats to focus on bringing home an 8th NCAA National Championship.
UK Fan Brandon Monroe waited to see the team's plane land in Lexington.
Looking back to Sunday's game in New Orleans he says, "Sometimes a loss can be a good thing... as long as you learn from it."
