Part of The Cats' Pause

Back Thru The cat Years Eight Years Ago The UK baseball team enjoyed its best offensive production of the years as it sprayed 22 hits in romping past Austin Peay by 13-5. Mark Hredzak had a homer and double and Mike Botkin had two doubles and five RBIs. ?Kentucky basketball signee Bret Bearup was named to Basketball Weekly's first five-man All-American team. Guard Jim Master, also UK-bound, was named to the third team. Both Bearup and Master also were named to the Parade All-America second team, along with the McDonald's All-American Dream Team. *Two Kentucky prep stars, one headed for the Big Blue, were named to Joe Terranova's football list of the "80 Great Ones." Jeff Smith of Washington County is headed for UK while Chris Brown of Owensboro Catholic is taking his services to traditional powerhouse Notre Dame. Ten Years Ago ?Contrary to other reports, there is joy and happiness in Lexington and you'd better believe the University of Kentucky Wildcats are celebrating the NCAA title they won by a 94-88 victory over Duke Monday night in St. Louis. Thanks to a sparkling 41-point shooting exhibition by Jack Givens and a 20-point, 11-rebound performance by Rick Robey, the Wildcats returned the national trophy to Lexington for the first time in 20 years. Thanks to the Golden Goose, Kentucky is reigning as the national championship. His outstanding play enabled the Wildcats to take a lead midway in the first half and the 'Cats never trailed, although there were some scary moments at the end. "There was no finer way to go out," said Givens. "I'm really happy for the team and the people of the state of Kentucky because they really love basketball back there." WILDCAT QUIZ 1. True or False?
