The team with the best fans in college basketball is out of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.
That's what Charles Barkley thinks, anyway.
The Turner Sports analyst said on Thursday night that Kentucky has the "best" fans in the country. The Wildcats' fan base travels in "droves."
Kentucky fell in front of a large portion of its fan base on Thursday night. The Wildcats were upset by No. 9 seed Kansas State.
The game was in Atlanta, so plenty of Big Blue Nation's die-hards were able to make the trip. Unfortunately, they went home disappointed.
At least they can fall back on Barkley's praise.
Is he right?
Probably, yeah. Big Blue Nation is ridiculously passionate.
Kentucky will be watching the rest of the tournament from home, though. Kansas State, meanwhile, moved on to the Elite Eight, where it'll play No. 11 seed Loyola.
