Derek Anderson, Nate Northington, and Ralph Hacker inducted into Kentucky Sports Hall of Fame

The Kentucky Sports Hall of Fame inducted six new members last night, with three of them being former University of Kentucky legends.

The Wildcats included? Former Kentucky basketball star Derek Anderson, UK football trailblazer Nate Northington, and Kentucky radio legend Ralph Hacker.

The 42nd KSOF class was officially introduced last night, with former Louisville football star Deion Branch, KSU legend William Exum, and U.S. Olympian Willis Augustus Lee.

Here were the former Wildcats last night:

Anderson, a Louisville native, won a national championship at Kentucky in 1996 before playing in the NBA for 11 years, winning a title with the Miami Heat in 2006.

Northington was an all-state high school football player before playing at Kentucky, where he became the first African-American ever to play in an SEC football game.

To round out the UK representatives, Hacker was a long-time radio color analyst and did play-by-play for the University of Kentucky.

Congratulations to the former Wildcats for their impressive achievement!
