Steph Curry rocking Kentucky blue? It happened today.

Curry's alma mater Davidson played UK in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Curry's Wildcats lost to the Kentucky Wildcats in a hard-fought contest.

Former Golden State Warriors guard Kelenna Azubuike played his college ball at Kentucky. He helped the Wildcats make it to the 2005 Final Four before a five-year NBA career.

Azubuike is now a studio analyst for the Warriors for NBC Sports Bay Area. He and Curry apparently made a bet on the game between their alma maters, with Azubuike winning.

Curry's punishment involved him wearing a Kentucky jersey at shootaround. It looks like Azubuike's old No. 24.

That's a welcome sight for Wildcats fans.

Unfortunately, given last night's loss, Kentucky fans may not be able to enjoy this photo as much as they could if they had won. It was a tough defeat.

Still, Kentucky has a top-6 recruiting class coming in, plus they should return a number of players from this year’s team. Expectations will be high in Lexington once again next season.
