This Day in History: 1990-02-15

On February 15, 1990, in what was described by many as one of the most exciting games ever played at Rupp Arena, Rick Pitino’s rag-tag first team with eight scholarship players and no one taller than 6-foot-7 — the same team that lost by 55 earlier in the season at Kansas — beat an LSU team with Shaquille O’Neal, fellow 7-footer Stanley Roberts and the sweet-shooting guard known then as Chris Jackson.
