... in 1948, the U.S. team continued their demolition of anyone in their path to advance to the medal round. The most recent victory, a 61-33 victory over the Peru Cocaines, moved them to 5-0 in the tournament. Head coach Omar Browning switched things up and played the Kentucky five in the first half and his team in the second half. Wallace "Wah Wah" Jones (above) led the team with 12 points. Jones was an All-American forward at Kentucky and an All-SEC end for the Wildcat football team. His #27 jersey hangs in Rupp's rafters as he was a part of the very first Kentucky NCAA Championship team.
