On This Day In UK Basketball History

On December 5, 1953, Cliff Hagan scored 51 points against Temple.


On December 5, 1953, Cawood Ledford broadcasts his first game as the radio “Voice of the Wildcats.”


On December 5, 2009, freshman John Wall bounced back from a bout with dehydration and a queasy encounter with an IV drip to finish with 16 points -- including the clinching free throws with 4.3 seconds left -- seven assists, five rebounds and three steals to lift the Wildcats to a 68-66 victory over the North Carolina Tar Heels.  This was the first signature win of Calipari's tenure and proved his rebuilding job was well ahead of schedule.
