Here I didn’t think people were allowed to bring dogs to the NCAA Tournament. That rule, it seems, doesn’t apply to Ashley Judd. Shug is her registered “psychological support” dog, according to a 2012 interview with ABC. Maybe the Yum Center has some sort of rule that these registered dogs are allowed. Maybe Shug is classified as a service animal.
Look, if you need a psychological support dog for a first round game against Hampton there might be some serious things going on in your head.

And Ashley took a photo of her friend holding Shug because that helps Ashley’s psychological issues — I guess.
Now you try bringing a “psychological support” dog to a basketball game. Good luck with that one.
