The Kentucky Men's Basketball Team Really Loves Smash Bros.

Check out this funny video of the No. 1 overall team kicking back and playing some Smash as they await their next game.


The Kentucky men's basketball team, currently making a run in the NCAA tournament in pursuit of a National Championship and an undefeated season, really loves Super Smash Bros. They enjoy the Nintendo fighting game so much that the latest episode of Kentucky Wildcats TV is dedicated entirely to it.

In the video, they explain how playing Super Smash Bros. relaxes them and helps take their minds of basketball. They're playing the Nintendo 64 version of the game, which was released back in 1999 when some of these guys were probably too young to play it.

They say they play mostly in hotel rooms while on the road as they currently are for the Big Dance.

Popular characters among the Wildcat players include Fox, Pikachu, and Yoshi. The go-to characters for twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison are Mario and Luigi, who are brothers in the Mario universe.

Kentucky won its first two games in this year's NCAA tournament, where they are the No. 1 overall seed. They play again in the round of 16 tomorrow evening against No. 5 West Virginia.
