Tomorrow, Kentucky can extend its three-point streak to 1,000 games

KSR-1052

Lost in the shuffle this week has been a very important milestone the Cats could cross tomorrow. Kentucky’s STREAK!!! of consecutive games with a made three-pointer sits at 999, meaning UK needs only one trey tomorrow to make it a cool 1,000.

In the final game of last season, Kentucky passed UNLV for the nation’s longest active streak of games with a three-pointer, but the Runnin’ Rebels have played one more game than the Cats this season, so the two are currently tied at 999. If Kentucky gets a three tomorrow, they’ll beat UNLV to 1,000 consecutive games with a trey, if only by a few hours. UNLV takes on San Jose State tomorrow night.

Kentucky’s last game without a three? November 26, 1988, when they lost to Seton Hall in the Great Alaska Shootout, where, fittingly, the Cats lost by three.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane and relive some great threes of the past via YouTube:

Tony Delk’s three vs. Syracuse in the 1996 National Championship

Cameron Mills’ three vs. Duke:

Tayshaun’s five threes vs. UNC:

Aaron’s threes in the 2014 Tournament:

It’s impossible to watch those without watching this:

And finally, Malik’s three vs. UNC this season:
