If you’re a Kentucky Basketball historian, then you’ll love Kyle Tucker’s latest podcast on SEC Country.
Kyle welcomed on Kentucky Great, Tony Delk, to discuss all things Kentucky Basketball, past and present.
Here are the highlights below.
Delk’s resume speaks for itself. McDonald’s All-American, SEC Player of the Year, NCAA All-American, Kentucky’s all-time leader in 3-pointers, NCAA Basketball Tournament Most Outstanding Player, 1996 National Champion just to name a few.
What is his greatest memory in a Kentucky uniform? It’s not one of those many accolades above.
“Senior Night. My mother came and watched me play in a Kentucky uniform…Winning a championship was great, but to have her there, and to see her be proud of all the accomplishments that I had gained up until that point is my most lasting and greatest memory.”
Who is on Tony’s Mount Rushmore of Kentucky Basketball Greats?
“Dan Issel, Kenny Walker, Goose Givens, Anthony Davis.”
Who does Tony think is Kentucky’s best “pure” shooter in Kentucky history? (Not named Tony Delk)
“Rex Chapman, Kyle Macy, Travis Ford. I was a freshman and Travis was a junior, and when he actually missed a shot, I was shocked.”
On Malik Monk:
“I get excited, because I know he has the green light. That’s something I didn’t play with in college… When you have a green light, you have a different approach to the game. Even when you’re off, you’re just one or two buckets from getting on.”
