Dirk Nowitzki May Have Left 'Go UK' Sign for Kentucky Players

The Kentucky Wildcats are preparing to take on the Wisconsin Badgers in their Final Four matchup Saturday night, and it looks like they have one pretty big fan rooting for them.

While at American Airlines Center, the Wildcats posed in front of Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki's locker. It looks like Nowitzki is rooting for the Wildcats, as he has a "Go UK" sign on top of his locker.

It is unclear if Nowitzki personally put the sign up, but according to Eddie Sefko from DallasNews.com, the 12-time All-Star would have probably gone to Kentucky if he hadn't gone straight to the NBA from Germany, so at least we know who he's likely rooting for.
