During the summer I like to look back on some of the great games that UK has played in, both football and basketball. But to be honest, we have TONS of great games to choose from. I wanted to highlight some of the great ones that don’t get mentioned very often, if ever. The games that got drowned out because they happened too early in the NCAA Tournament, wasn’t against just the right opponent, or for various other reasons.
Today I give you the 1993 Sweet 16 beatdown of Wake Forest. I would argue the first 10 minutes of that game were the best 10 minutes in UK basketball history. At that point in the game:
UK 34, Wake Forest 8
Jamal Mashburn: 5-5 from 3
UK 8-8 from 3
18 points off turnovers
I am not saying watch the whole game below but watch the first 10 minutes. UK basketball at it’s finest. Jamal Mashburn at his finest.
