... in 1984, your #3 University of Kentucky Wildcats sent a fine group of senior's away by throttling the Ole Miss Jar Jar Binx, 90-68, in front of a sellout crowd at Rupp Arena. The senior's were: Tom Heitz, Dicky Beal, Jim Master, Melvin Turpin, and Sam Bowie. Big Blue was led on the day by Sam Bowie, who was an efficient 5-6 from the field and 10-11 from the foul line, and finished with 20 points and 16 rebounds. Big Mel finished the game with 19 points and five rebounds as Joe B. Hall's Cats shot 58% from the field. The win pushed Kentucky to 23-4 on the season and in great position for a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Twin Towers went on to lead UK to the SEC Tournament title over Auburn (more on that a week from today). After beating renewed rival Louisville in the Sweet Sixteen and #6 Illinois in the Elite Eight (in Lexington BTW), Joe B. earned his third trip to the Final Four. You can look up the rest if you want.
