Today we breathe a sigh of relief as Kentucky was finally able to pull away from Tennessee in Rupp Arena Tuesday for its second Southeastern Conference win of the season. It hasn’t been easy for the Cats, and it won’t get any easier from here, with remaining games against Missouri, Ole Miss, and a pair against Florida.
To ease your tension, take a trip down memory lane and reminisce one of college basketball’s greatest teams ever, in what was one of their most dominating offensive performances. Watch their dismantling of Louisiana State in 1996, to the tune of 86 points in the first half.
The 2012-13 Kentucky Wildcats are not the 1995-96 Wildcats by any means. But look how easy they make that look. Wow. Our guys could learn a thing or two watching this team play. Watch the ball movement, the energy on the press, the aggressiveness off the glass, and the ability to finish around the rim.
That was fun. Thanks to Season Never Ends, I remembered that it happened on this day in 1996.
