<3ecem/her SO, {(}$<} 77/e (ja/A'' (JScui&e Wildcats rout Furman 104-73 Record-setting UK breaks game open early with runs of 78-0 and 25-2 midway through first half by TCP managing editor Russell Rice Three-point-shot records continued to fall, with promises of more of the same, as "Pitino's Pistols" bullseyed 19 of 47 long-range attempts and the University of Kentucky cruised to a a 104-73 win over Furman in Rupp Arena. Returning to action after a 10-day layoff following a 55-point (150-95) loss to Kansas that set modern-day records for points scored and margin of victory against a UK team, the Wildcats racked up their third 100-point game of the young season while upping their record to four wins at home and two losses on the road as they entered their Christmas holiday tournament. In burying Furman under a barrage of three-pointers, coupled with an aggressive defense, the 'Cats posted the following marks: •NCAA record for three-point attempts (47). besting their own mark of 41 set against Tennessee Tech. It was the third straight game in which they reached or surpassed 40 attempts. •Equalled NCAA record of 19 three-pointers shared by Valparaiso and St. Francis. Pa. •Beat SEC record of 18 three-pointers that they set against Tennessee Tech. •NCAA record for the number of players (eight) hitting three-pointers in a game. The old record was seven, set twice by Arizona (1987 and 1988) and Loyola-Marymount (1988). •NCAA record for most number of treys attempted by both teams (67), breaking record of 57 set during UK's loss to Kansas at Lawrence. Senior guard Derrick Miller led the onslaught with five three-pointers in 13 attempts. Richie Farmer hit four of seven, Deron Feldhaus three of six, John Pelphrey two of six. Scott Brassow two of seven, Reggie Hanson one of one, Sean Woods one of two and Nehemiah Braddy one of four. The number could have been nine, except that Johnahan Davis missed his only long-range try, which gave him two air balls in two attempts this season. When asked about Davis' off-the-mark shot, Wildcat coach Rick Pitino likened the 6-foot-6 sophomore forward to Kenny Walker, former Wildcat All-American who played for Pitino the last two seasons with the New York Knicks. "He wants to make one," Pitino said of Davis. "Kenny Walker was the same way.. Finally Kenny made one to get over the hump and we got him back inside." "The records will be broken by us," Pitino said. "We'll break our records. Someone will break ours. They'll all be shattered as time goes by as people realize...well, anyway, they'll all be shattered." Furman coach Butch Estes, still reeling from the onslaught, said he didn't mind the threes; he was just glad Pitino called off the press. "If they had kept pressing," he said, "that might not have been in the best light." "I've never seen anything like that three-point shooting," he added. "Amazing. It was quite an exhibition." While Pitino hinted that the three-point line (19' 9") might be too close, Estes said, "What it may do is make the NCAA think how close UK-FURMAN ITEMS NOT TO GO UNNOTICED: ¦ With the crowd begging for a three-pointer on UK's last handful of offensive possessions, freshman walk-on Junior Braddy obliged, tossing in a turnaround 22-footer with 14 seconds left that tied one NCAA record and broke another. Brad-dy's shot gave UK 19 threes, tying UK with Valparaiso and St. Francis, Pa., for most made in one game, and gave UK the new record for most players making a three in one game with eight, breaking records held previously by Arizona and Loyola-Marymount. The 19 threes is also an SEC record. ¦ Kentucky attempted 47 three-pointers for the game, a new NCAA record. ¦ The two teams combined for 67 three-point attempts, also a new NCAA record. the (three-point line) is. But there's no question that from an offensive standpoint it's a great way to play. At least from a player's standpoint." Pitino said the Wildcats aren't likely to be bombing from outside so often once he gets more inside players. "Actually, the three is supposed to enhance the low-post game," he said. "You set up the shot by passing inside and kicking it out. And ideally (because the teams can't collapse inside because they're wary of the return pass outside) that should get you 18 to 20 shots a game against single coverage for your inside people." The three-point onslaught began with a 21-footer by Feldhaus that tied the game at 7-7 with 16:42 on the clock. The Wildcats came out sluggish, throwing the ball away on the game's first possession. With the score tied at 2-all and less than a minute gone, Pitino called a timeout. He explained later that he never worries about television or radio timeouts, calling them instead whenever he deems it necessary. Furman went ahead, 7-4, on a four-footer by Bruce Evans and a three-pointer by Chris Bass. Miller scored on a layup and Feldhaus started the three-point onslaught with a 20-footer, which was followed by another Miller layup. Furman answered with a layup by David Stamey. a short goal by Derek Waugh and a three-pointer by Tracy Garrick for a 14-9 lead: then UK scored seven straight points (Continued on page 27) .FrlCIAL NCAA BASKF.TPALL PCX SCOPE: 51TCS ?Llll M»l.
