Kentucky Escapes Vanderbilt with a 87-81 Victory
The Bermuda Triangle of Basketball strikes again, well, almost. Playing at Vanderbilt is a virtual grab bag. Buzzer beaters, blowouts, injuries, terrible officiating, shot clock issues. The list goes on and on. Why have we called it the “Bermuda Triangle of Basketball” over the years? Just try to survive with a W and get the hell out of there. Briscoe played 39 minutes and had 23 points, 5 assists and 7 rebounds and played like a leader. Fox played 25 minutes with 22 points, 2 assists and 5 rebounds. BAM had 14 points with 8-10 from the free throw line. He also had 7 rebounds.
Kentucky vs. Arkansas 1995 Highlights
The mid 90’s was the classic Kentucky vs. Arkansas era. Arkansas came in and thought they were going to take over the SEC. They made a strong case early with wins at Rupp and a national presence. Well, we know they didn’t take over the SEC, but, the games in that era were true battles. The “Rodrick Rhodes missing the free throws” game is one of the those games everyone remembers. It’s one of those games most can tell you where they were when the game was played. Arkansas was fresh off of a National Championship and many believed Kentucky was about to get their 7th in 1995. UCLA would take the prize beating Arkansas in 1995 and UK would have to wait until the next season to get the championship. Check out the highlights of this SEC classic.
