So You Think You're a Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Fan?

Stars, Stats, Records, and Memories for True Diehards


More than a just a trivia book, So You Think You’re A Kentucky Basketball Fan challenges your knowledge of Wildcats basketball with stories behind each question and answer that brings the history of this legendary team to life.
This book, part of a new sports trivia series, is divided into four parts, with progressively more difficult questions in each new section. The Benchwarmer section contains the most basic questions. Next are the Starter and All-American sections, followed by the biggest challenge: the Hall of Fame.
Learn more about the great UK players and coaches of the past and present, including Adolph Rupp, Alex Groza, Cliff Hagan, Pat Riley, Dan Issel, Kenny Walker, Jamal Mashburn, Rick Pitino, and John Wall. Some of the many questions that this book answers include:

• Who was the youngest Wildcat to earn All-America recognition?
• What two ex-Cats are the all-time leading scorers in the old American Basketball Association?
• Who broke Dan Issel’s record (53) for most points in a game?
• Who are the only three Wildcats to make All-SEC first team and All-SEC Tournament first team four straight years?

This book makes the perfect gift for any fan of the Big Blue!
