Photo: Kentucky Basketball Honors Alex Poythress With "Roar For 22" Shirts

Kentucky basketball suffered a huge loss on Thursday when junior forward Alex Poythress tore his ACL. He will miss the rest of the year after suffering the injury.

Today is the Wildcats' first game without its veteran leader, and to honor Poythress -- who wears the number 22 -- John Calipari's squad is wearing special "Roar for 22" shirts during warmups. Check them out:

Here's a closer view of the shirts, from freshman guard Tyler Ulis.

Kentucky will host North Carolina in Lexington today. The game is scheduled to tip off at 12:00 P.M. EST at Rupp Arena, and you can watch it on CBS.
