This Day in History: 1987-02-11
On February 11, 1987, Kentucky defeated Tennessee 91-84 in overtime. Kentucky was down 10 points to Don DeVoe’s Volunteers with 1:13 left in Rupp Arena when the Wildcats unleashed a ferocious rally. Rex Chapman hit a running 12-footer over 6-foot-11 UT center Doug Roth with three seconds left to force overtime —where UK won before 23,002 fans. One of the all-time miracle comebacks in Kentucky basketball history.
