Although he wasn't born in the state of Kentucky, Sean Woods feels like he's at home.   The new (Morehead, Kent.) coach is just a short drive from Lexington, where he starred at Kentucky as a member of a crew coined “The Unforgettables.” His jersey hangs from the rafters in Rupp Arena, recognition for Woods' efforts in the program's improbable run to the Elite Eight in 1992.  His mother's family lives in Lexington. His wife is a Kentucky native.  “Well, it helps tremendously because now you have a familiarity. When we were in Mississippi, we didn't know anyone,” Woods, who led to the NCAA tournament last season, told “Here, we have familiarity. We're 40 minutes from Lexington. My wife is from Lexington. The whole side of my Mom's family is from Lexington. So it's somewhat home for the most part.”
