Sports aficionado Jay-Z was so impressed at the Kentucky Wildcats victory over the praised North Carolina Tarheels in East Regional Final in this year’s NCAA tournament, that Hov stopped by the player’s locker room to give the team their props after the game.

Showing up unannounced, the mogul posed for pictures with the team and congratulated the college ballers on their incredible victory. The Wildcats will advance to the Final Four.

Kentucky’s Darius Miler commented on the surprise visit, “I said, ‘Oh that’s Jay-Z!'” forward Terrence Jones said. “We all gave him a handshake and he came in the locker room, and we just kept screaming ‘Jay-Z in the locker room!’ He congratulated us, just said he was proud of us.”

Perhaps Jay is scouting for the Nets.
