Love On The Hardwood: Kentucky Basketball Couple Gets Engaged

If you were lucky enough to grow up in the state of Kentucky, your first love was the great game of basketball. Most of us who have had the privilege of residing in Kentucky will recall major life events by telling you what was going on with the basketball team at that specific moment.

Now, fans will have another memory to add to their great moments in Kentucky basketball history.

On Thursday, Kentucky women’s and men’s stars C.J. Frederick and Blair Green shared with the Wildcat faithful that they’re getting hitched.

Frederick and Green share deep roots with the state as the couple grew up in the thoroughbred state. Green, a graduate student, has spent the last four years in the blue and white. While Frederick returned to his old Kentucky home last season after spending his first three years with the Iowa Hawkeyes. Both also missed the entirety of their respective seasons last year as the pair dealt with injuries that kept them sidelined.

This story perfectly encapsulates basketball and Kentucky. We just do it better than anyone else. Married to the game, I guess you could say. The two have secured one ring and now will be hoping for another. Congrats to the Kentucky kids.
