LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)-It was not all bad news at Rupp Arena Saturday. Solid Blue fans officially got to meet their new scoreboard.
During halftime at the game Saturday, the Lexington center announced the results of the “Name the Video Board Contest”. The board will now be known as “Lexi”. 1972 UK alumnus Dan Parker won the naming contest. He won two tickets to every public event at Rupp next season plus a private locker room tour and a custom 40th anniversary Rupp Arena jacket.
The contest started in November after the old sound system at Rupp, the much beloved ‘Big Bertha’, was retired.
