West Liberty had a very special guest visit Friday.

UK head basketball coach John Calipari went there with a singular purpose--raising funds to rebuild.

Kentucky Sports Radio held the event and invited Cal to try and get more donations.

It worked--$25,000 was raised in an hour.

And the UK men's basketball coach matched it.

Afterward, over $10,000 was donated to the website dedicated to rebuilding the tornado-ravaged town.
