1948, 1958, 1978, and 1998 all produced NCAA champions at UK.
1979 (NIT 1st round L), 1989 (worst W-L record since 1920's), and 2009 are Less Than Memorable in UK annals.
Obviously numbers have nothing to do with it.
But interesting that 9 is not kind to UK (since 1949 anyway).
UK must W in Gainseville then sweep through SECT to salvage this season into respectability.
Not sure how that might happen but that's what has to happen over the next week (+) for UK basketball.
