VCU Peppas Band Performs 'Wrecking Ball' And Then Throws Up A Space Kitten Banner (VIDEO)

What better way to pump up the university basketball team than with a rendition of "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus and a giant space kitten to go with it.

Virginia Commonwealth University's pep band, the Peppas, performed Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" at the Dec. 28, 2013 game against Boston College in New York City. They later played the song in a game against George Mason University on Jan. 9.

The VCU Peppas is considered one of the most entertaining pep bands in college basketball, and in this case, they didn't stop with the song.

At the game against George Mason, they deployed a giant space kitten banner reminicent of Cyrus' performance at the American Music Awards.

The band also reportedly yelled "meow" during George Mason free throws:

Nicely done, Peppas.
