Courtside at the Final Four: UK's No. 1 fan Ashley Judd & Butler backer George H.W. Bush

It's not the Super Bowl, but the NCAA Final Four brought its share of famous faces to Houston to watch Butler beat VCU and Connecticut oust Kentucky.

Former president and familiar sports fan George H.W. Bush and wife Barbara were in attendance (pulling for Butler) and UK's most famous alum, Ashley Judd, was front-and-center in the student section. Rapper Drake also sat courtside in UK gear.

Also rooting on the teams at Reliant were former Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, promoting his new Jamie Foxx-narrated documentary, On the Shoulders of Giants; basketball players Dikembe Mutombo and Larry Sanders: and Arli$$ star Robert Wuhl, who attended the University of Houston.
