At CoachCal.com -- 94-feet: On the verge of Perfection

In my 94-feet article, and in preparation for Kentucky's battle with the Georgia Bulldogs, I take a quick peek at the UK/UGA series history as well as the series superlatives, then examine Melvin Turpin's nearly perfect game against UGA in the 1984 SEC tourney. Here's an excerpt:

"Early on in the contest it became clear it would be the Cats' day. With Kentucky guards Dicky Beal and Jim Master making shots, Georgia's tightly packed zone began to loosen a bit, turning the game into Turpin time.

"Dominating around the rim, Turpin scored on put-backs, tip-ins and dunks, and in one four-minute stretch of the first half (13:30 to 9:30), the big man scored 11 consecutive Wildcat points, propelling UK to a 33-16 lead. As if to reiterate his size advantage, the 15,426 in attendance at Vanderbilt's Memorial Gymnasium witnessed Turpin make seven of his 11 first-half shots on follow-ups after a UK miss."
