These Cats Already Made Final 4 (Top 4 Teams In UK History)

Obviously that's my opinion - not a fact. The next two weeks will tell the tale.

The 2010 UK Wildcats are in the company of 1948, 1978, and 1996 as the best UK basketball team ever.

Talent level on this year's team measures up to those.

All 4 of the teams dominated their SEC competition. 1948 was undefeated against SEC. 1996 lost just 1 game to SEC opponent. 1978 and 2010 lost 2 SEC games.

Each had 3 star players leading the way. Wall, Cousins, and Patterson this year. Delk, Walker, and Mercer in 1996. Givens, Robey, and Macy in 1978. Beard, Groza, and Jones in 1948.

The 1948 team lost to the best amateur team in the world (Phillips Oilers) but then joined forces with the Oilers to win Olympic Gold Medal.

The 1978 team beat the world's best amateur team (Soviet Union) in preseason game by 34 points.

If these Cats W on April 5th, they will become the Best Cats Ever - I think.
