The University of Kentucky has always been known for their basketball program, but it was their fans who caught our attention this weekend!!
Josh Hutcherson has been a lifelong fan of the Wildcats, so he made his way to his hometown to show some love as they took on their rivals in the Louisville Cardinals!
Well, at halftime the actor got a chance to greet his fellow fans at half court, and the fans gave him a VERY warm welcome! And what better way to say hello to Peeta than with a Mockingjay salute!
That's right! The packed Rupp Arena looked more like District 12 as the fans all did their best Katniss Everdeen impressions and did a three-finger salute!
We're not sure what Kentucky fans love more: Basketball or The Hunger Games LOLz!
