Kentucky vs. Tennessee in 1969
vs. in 1969

From The Season Never Ends 2010 Calendar:   “No way was bitter rival going to notch the school’s 1,000th victory on Tennesee’s home floor. But #5 Kentucky was too much for the unranked Vols, getting 21 points from Dan Issel, 18 from and 17 from to hang on 69-66.  The victory meant was the first team in college basketball to reach the milestone, and the fact it came against orange blazer-wearing Ray Mears and the Vols made the win sweeter.”
