SEC Tournament: UK women get support from surprising source

Betcha didn't know National Marching Band Day was Wednesday, March 4.

There is no National Pep Band Day, but thanks to the fine young ladies and gentlemen of the Ole Miss Pep Band, it might have to be March 5.

The Rebel band played during the women's basketball game against Arkansas in the SEC Tournament in Little Rock, AR, on Thursday. Then, about six hours later, the band played in support of the University of Kentucky women's team as it took on Vanderbilt.

Thanks to this week's snowstorm, UK's pep band couldn't make the trip, so Ole Miss stepped in and helped the Lady Wildcats to a 67-61 win.

Funny thing is, the Arkansas band did the same thing Thursday, playing for Georgia as the Lady Bulldogs played Missouri.
