This Day in History: 2001-12-29

On December 29, 2001, No. 6 Kentucky defeated Louisville, 82-62.  A Rupp Arena crowd of 24,330 was calling for vengeance when former UK Coach Rick Pitino returned to Lexington for the first time as head coach of the Cardinals. Tayshaun Prince (18 points) and Keith Bogans (17) led a dismantling of Pitino’s overmatched team.
