LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — University of Kentucky women's basketball coach Kyra Elzy said she wasn't singing or dancing like Matthew Mitchell used to do, but she was going to do something fierce.

She rapelled down from the rafters to the court as Big Blue Nation went crazy.

"She is a boss," UK assistant basketball coach Orlando Antigua said. "Way to go, Coach."

"I was like I got to do something big," Elzy said. "Go big or go home for my first one. Everyone was asking me was I going to dance like coach Mitchell and I knew I wasn't going to do that, but I think I set my own tone tonight."
