Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Details
When you talk about great programs in college basketball, Kentucky is at the top of the list. Literally – at the time of this writing, they have more wins than any other team in history. And the highest winning percentage. The Wildcats are king of the college basketball hill.
Kentucky began playing basketball in 1903, and became a charter member of the Southeastern Conference in 1932. Since then, they’ve been a powerhouse, with dozens of NCAA Tournament appearances and conference championships, along with eight national titles.
The Wildcats have had many great coaches – Joe B. Hall, Rick Pitino, Tubby Smith, John Calipari – but the greatest of all was Adolph Rupp, who led the program from 1930 until 1972. Rupp piloted the team to national championships in 1948, 1949, 1951 and 1958, and is a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Rupp’s legacy is still prominent in Lexington, as the Wildcats play in Adolph Rupp Arena, which holds 23,500 fans. Rupp is the largest arena in the United States designed specifically for basketball, and there are approximately 10,000 parking spaces within a 10-minute walk of its downtown Lexington location. Once inside, you’ll notice the Kentucky student section, known as the eRUPPtion Zone.
Kentucky’s best all-time player? There are so many possibilities. Dan Issel and Kenny Walker are among the team’s leading scorers, and neither is one of the many Wildcats to have been named as national player of the year.
Beyond the SEC – where Tennessee is its biggest rival – Kentucky’s biggest foe is intrastate opponent Louisville. Just 75 miles apart, the two basketball powers meet every season in late December or early January.
