Back in the 2003 season, Kentucky was in the middle of a 26 game winning streak as it made it’s way eventually to #1. This game made the nation take notice that we were for real. The 2003 team remains one of the funnest to have ever taken the court in Lexington and it’s defense was one of the best in history. We were perhaps a Keith Bogans ankle injury to yet another title. No other program has what we have, and no other program has as many “almost” seasons. Watch the Cats dominate a really good Florida team.

Former Kentucky standout Doron Lamb was recently released from the Orlando Magic but has resurfaced on the Toronto Raptors Summer League Roster. If he’s able to make the squad, it would put him on a team with Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes. It seems like the thing to do in the NBA these days, have a Cat or 3 on your squad. Here’s hoping Lamb can find a new home in Toronto.
