Kentucky Basketball: Through The Years

This video is usually shown at halftime of Kentucky games in Rupp Arena, but summertime is always a good time to be reminded of what's to come.

If you're a season ticket holder at Rupp Arena in recent years, you've seen this video a bunch of times already. Still, in the dead of summer, it's always a good thing to be able to stop and, well, smell the roses (and in this case, I'm not talking Four Roses Single Barrel).

This video really brings back some nice moments to me, and several of the more memorable are the James Lee dunk against the Duke Blue Devils in 1978, the Jeff Brassow tip-in against the Arizona Wildcats to win the Maui Invitational in 1993, Patrick Sparks' rim-hanging 3-pointer vs. the Michigan St. Spartans in 2005, Padget's 3-pointer from the top of the key in 1998 vs. the Duke Blue Devils -- they're all in there, plus more including Kenny Walker, King Rex, Tayshaun Prince, Cameron Mills, Antoine Walker, Dan Issel ... and many more.

If you need something to get your sluggish summertime Big Blue blood pumping, you can hardly do better than this.
