Kentucky fans will have a chance to vote for their favorite play of the John Calipari era when the basketball staff releases its bracket style challenge to the public on Tuesday. 

UK collected votes from fans earlier this month to determine the seeding of the top plays. The program will release two plays each day and fans can vote for their favorite play to move on to the next round. UK will use Twitter to promote the bracket challenge, partnering it with #UKTop10.

On Monday, Kentucky released a video of plays that just missed the cut of the tournament. Fans can check in with the official UK Basketball Twitter account throughout the week for the released matchups of plays.

Calipari has coached at UK for seven seasons (2009-now).
