handing the 'Cats their first loss of the season. The Hoosiers led 54-38 at the half and Kentucky never got close. The intense game had a bitter ending in the closing minutes when IU coach Bobby Knight "tapped" Kentucky coach Joe B. Hall on the head as he walked away. Although UK assistant Lynne Nance was in a fighting stance ready to challenge Knight, the Hoosier coach said the tap was meant affectionately and that he had been doing the same thing to his players for years. Scott May had 25 points for Indiana and Kevin Grevey led UK with 22.
