Kentucky Basketball is still reeling over the loss of Terrence Clarke, but his teammates are already planning a memorial in his honor. Keion Brooks posted on Instagram that the team will hold a candlelight ceremony at 8:30 p.m. outside of the Wildcat Coal Lodge and everyone is welcome.
“Terrence brought nothing but light into the world and tonight at 8:30 p.m., we will be celebrating that light with a candlelight ceremony in front of the Wildcat Coal Lodge. All are welcomed to come and show their respects as we celebrate the life of our brother.”
A makeshift memorial is taking shape outside the Wildcat Coal Lodge:
