Coach Hall, at the ceremony said:

No one has a speech for an unveiling of a statue of them

I'll be here every day if anybody didn't get their picture

A spectacular award that I don't have words for,
I appreciate so much Joe Craft and his influence in this and
John for carrying it out.

The achievements that I had at Kentucky were guaranteed by the tradition,
the legacy that Coach Rupp left
