Sutton, as in Scott, signs with Don Lane's Pioneers
By TCP Associate Editor Nick Nicholas
Lexington Henry Clay senior Scott Sutton, the son of former Kentucky coach Eddie Sutton, signed the dotted line earlier this month with Transylvania.
"I've thought about it all year and coach (Don) Lane's been in touch with me all year long," said Scott, a 6-foot-6 swingman who was an All-State Honorable Mention selection this past season. "It (decision) wasn't very hard.
"I wanted to go to a college that had outstanding academics and basketball, and Transy met both of these criteria for me."
With his mom on his right, his dad on his left, three television cameras peering in front, his high school coach as well as other onlookers at the press conference, Scott nervously signed the letter of intent. After a brief statement he then turned with a grin aimed at his father. "Good," said the elder Sutton with a ear-to-ear smile, acknowledging his son's moment in the spotlight.
Transy's program under Lane's guidance has excelled. A year ago Lane guided the Pioneers to a 26-4 record, an NAIA District 32 championship which was tied to a trip to Kansas City and a No. 7 position in the national poll.
In 14 years Lane's career record at Transy ranks second to no one. Scott said he looks forward to playing for Lane, who's the owner of a 247-128 mark. The feeling is mutual.
"He's an excellent passer and a three-point shooter," said Lane of his newest signee. "We watched his progress all the way through...We recruited Scott because he can be a good player for us.
"I never had a guy come from Henry Clay who was not ready to play."
Academics was another reason Transylvania and Scott Sutton took a liking to each other. "Our standards are higher than Proposition 48's," Lane noted. "He's interested in academics and you've got to be if you're going to Transylvania."
District 32 rival Georgetown was the only
other school Sutton visited. His trip to see the Tigers play, meanwhile, was not an official call.
At this writing Scott is the second Pioneer signee, the other being Brett Eades of Paris High School. Sutton and Eades, as well as four other players currently on Transy's roster, have something in commontheir dads coach or at one time worked the sidelines in the roundball sport.
Staying in Lexington played a significant factor for Eddie and Patsy Sutton's youngest son. Now the problem for mom and dad is which son do they watch playSean or Scottif both UK and Transy are scheduled on the same evening. Probably both, since the drive between Rupp Arena and McAlister Auditorium can be made in a five-minute drive.
"Next year I think they'll be around and they'll be able to see every game," Scott said.
Add the possibility of contributing in his freshman season and all signs pointed Scott in the direction of the Lexington institution. He even plans to move on campus.
"I like to shoot the three-pointers and coach Lane does a great job of coaching," said Scott, who connected on better than 45 percent from beyond the three-point line last season. "If I just work hard and try to learn the system I think I'll be all right."
Scott compiled a steady senior season for Al Prewitt's 19-8 Blue Devils. While averaging 18 points per game he also contributed six rebounds and four assists per outing. He was named to the All-City, All-District and All-Regional squads. The Blue Devils were eliminated in the regional semifinals.
As a junior first-stringer he averaged 9 ppg., on a Henry Clay squad that made it to the final eight in Sweet 16 play.
"I think he made a good decision," said his brother Sean, whose plans are to remain at UK. "Coach Lane is a great coach and the years that I've been here I've been impressed by the way they play. They've turned out some very good basketball players.
"As long as he's happy, that's the most important thing."
Dickey is third UK assistant to resign
From The Cats' Pause staff reports
James Dickey became the third assistant to officially resign from his UK assistant post late last month.
Earlier Dwane Casey and Jimmy Dykes turned in their notice, effective immediately, after head coach Eddie Sutton stepped down last March because of the NCAA investigation into the UK basketball program.
"I've enjoyed coaching and I enjoyed coaching at Kentucky," Dickey said. "Being at Kentucky was a good experience for me. I learned about the day-to-day operation of a program that is highly visible."
As to why he waited II days to resign, the 34-year-old Dickey figured Sutton's resignation meant that he was gone, too.
"It was not an immediate concern," quoted Dickey. "When coach Sutton resigned, I thought he resigned basically for the staff. The first thing on my mind was to take care of my family."
The former UK assistant said he resigned "because I understand that any new coach will want to have the prerogative of selecting his own staff."
Dickey was named in five of the 18 allegations against the basketball program.
He has indicated he still wants to be a head coach on the college level. "If that's possible," Dickey wondered. "I'm just not sure how the investigation will affect us. I will explore any option."
Before being named as an assistant at Kentucky, Dickey worked in the same capacity under Sutton at Arkansas. It was a week after Sutton was named UK's head coach back in April of '85 when Dickey officially accepted the offer to come to the Bluegrass.
Is P.J. a candidate for UK job? New Jersey paper answers 'Yes!'
According to The Record of Hackensack Seton Hall coach P.J. Carlesimo is a candidate to be Eddie Sutton's successor at Kentucky. Seton Hall athletics director Larry Keating said that CM. Newton had contacted the Big East school to receive permission to talk to Carlesimo.
This comes a couple of weeks after Lute Olson, again, had second thoughts in regard to the Kentucky job. Olson reportedly planned a visit to Lexington to meet with CM. Newton but cancelled after University of Arizona officials offered its coach a new financial package.
Reports from last Sunday link Carlesimo as a possibility. The newspaper reported that Newton has indeed spoken "several times" with Carlesimo.
Carlesimo, 39, led the Pirates to this year's NCAA championship game, where they lost to Michigan 80-79 in overtime. Seton Hall finished the season with a 31-7 record.
With the completion of the 1988-89 campaign, Carlesimo has four years left on his current contract.
Besides Olson, Los Angeles Lakers coach Pat Riley, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and New York Knicks coach Rick Pitino have publicly said they are not interested at this time in the Kentucky vacancy.
Those four reportedly were (and maybe still are) top candidates on Newton's list. OSCAR L. COMBS
Worst is over, now it's time to rebuild UK basketball
?As this issue of TCP goes to press, the University of Kentucky has just concluded its appearance before the NCAA Infractions Committee and NCAA officials say a final verdict of all charges should come anywhere from two to four weeks from now.
In other words, another two to four weeks of playing the waiting game.
But for UK, the worst is now over. Sure, the final results aren't in, but the trial is history and once penalties, if any (and there will be some), are handed down, then UK can start rebuilding.
From talking to various people who either were part of the hearing or around the hearing, it is almost impossible to determine what the infractions committee will ultimately decide.
There, however, can be some casual observations made. NCAA officials, as well as the infractions committee, obviously were pleased with the thoroughness of UK's in-house investigation and the way UK responded to the NCAA's instructions.
Some UK fans might feel betrayed by UK officials for being so forthright and honest, but they shouldn't. In the end, such honesty could play a major role in how the infractions committee ultimately sentences Kentucky.
UK president David Roselle, though, has repeatedly denied conducting an honest investigation for the sole purpose of obtaining a lighter penalty. Roselle says the reason for conducting a detailed and honest investigation is strictly because that's the way it (an in-house investigation) should be done.
For years, the NCAA has stressed self-policing and self-compliance for members of the NCAA. Quite honestly, many (perhaps most) have winked at the philosophy. Not Roselle. And he's come under increasing heat from some UK fans because they feel many other schools are doing just that, winking.
That segment of UK fans believe Roselle doesn't understand college athletics and how they really operate, that he is totally disinterested in athletics.
Not true.
The president may be guilty of not knowing how widespread cheating and winking at the rules are in college athletics, but he is not anti-athletics.
With the arrival of Roselle, we are going to see if the NCAA way of conducting business really works. Roselle has opened Kentucky's heart to the world. No doubt, some warts have been discovered, just like they would at many other schools.
But other schools are not the issue right now, just Kentucky. Whether you like it or not, Kentucky's athletics program (not just basketball) is being cleaned up, not just to the level of other schools, but far beyond it.
Before we go any farther, let me clarify what I mean by the overall Kentucky program. Basketball, and basketball only, is under the gun of the NCAA right now,
but in the process of evaluating the basketball program, every phase of the UK athletics program has undergone the microscope these past several months. As a result of the year-long study, look for other management philosophies to change, look for more newer and tougher controls on the day-to-day operation of the athletics department.
While Kentucky is cleaning up its act, it is not the first school to go before the NCAA jury. It certainly won't be the last, but at least some UK detractors will have to pick on another school as being untouchable.
To those Kentucky bashers, I often chuckle. They're so jealous of UK. On one hand they claim UK operates above the law of the NCAA and is never targeted by the NCAA, that UK is on that proverbial list of "untouchables." Yet, those same skeptics keep talking about how many times UK has been investigated and placed on probation by the NCAA over the years. Something doesn't fit.
Freight package from assistant Dwane Casey to Claude Mills, father of then UK signee Chris Mills, allegedly carried with it SI,000 cash. The second was the alleged academic fraud involving Eric Manuel's ACT test.
Conviction on either count gives UK a real black eye. If UK is judged guilty (and from previous reports, it appears UK pretty much agreed with the NCAA allegations in these two matters), it gives the strong apperance that they didn't accidentally happen.
You don't accidentally put SI,000 in an envelope and then deny you have no knowledge of it. If there was cheating on the ACT test (which was taken locally at Lafayette High School), it's very difficult to believe the cheating was accomplished alone by Manuel. UK, in its official response to the NCAA, reportedly didn't challenge the allegation of a $1,000 being in the package when it left the UK basketball offices, but UK said it could not determine who put the money in the
Next issue of TCP to be available in mid-May
As a reminder, now that we are using our sum.ner printing schedule, The Cats' Pause will be published once each munth until Sept. 9. Our next issue will be dated May 27, 1989, and will be available in mid-May. Look for the recap of the spring football game and a closer look at UK's meeting with the NCAA Infractions Committee in that issue.
Both these situations give great credibility to theories that such wrongdoings had other designers behind the stage. And that's what has become so alarming to Roselle.
That's probably why Kentucky is searching for a new coaching staff right now.
What we're going to see over the next few years at Kentucky is a model program, a model program the NCAA can hold up for the rest of the sports world to examine.
Kentucky will be a clear alternative to schools such as the one in football at Oklahoma, which is now on two years of postseason bowl bans after OU officials decided it was better to fight the NCAA, than switch their tactics and personnel.
Kentucky, on the other hand, is doing it the way other college presidents have been advocating. Of course, some presidents are like the old-time preacher: "Do as I say, not as I do."
The big question is: Can a big-time college sports program operate within the rules and still field a championship-caliber team? I'm not sure one can answer that question without some reservations.
I will say this: If there is a college program which can operate within the rules and still be of championship caliber, it should be Kentucky.
We're about to find out.
Quite the contrary. Kenucky, if anything, pays the price of being the New York Yankees of college basketball. Either you love 'em or you hate em. But then, that goes with the territory when everyone is envious of your success.
It never ceases to amaze me why so many people are so jealous of Kentucky. Well, maybe it shouldn't. Over the years, Kentucky has been known as one of the nation's top three or four basketball programs. And believe you me, no school gets investigated more thoroughly than UK, except perhaps UNLV.
So when all the washing is finally hung out to dry in the next few weeks, just consider how many people have been involved in the UK invesigation, the number of reporters who have chronicled it every step of the way and how much time has been put into it.
It's not uncommon for some schools which have been put on probation to have dozens and dozens of violations. By the time UK's list is completed, you'll find less than a dozen.
Having said that, we must face up to what has happened to the UK program in the past few years, admit the guilt, pay the penalty and move forward.
While the number of violations is relatively small, the nature of the charges are about as serious as they can become. They cannot be taken lightly, winked at or dismissed as an accidential mistake.
Of the original 18 charges, there are only two which are so terrible that you want to wish your school had never heard of them.
The infamous Emery Worldwide Air
We'll soon know what the NCAA thinks of the way president David Roselle has handled UK's response to the allegations.

Moment of truth has arrived for UK administrators
Must put basketball program on right track
Along with a fresh breath of springtime, the moment of truth has arrived for University of Kentucky administrators who have been talking of institutional control and management style during most of the 12 months
	1 f	Russell Rice Cats' Pause Columnist
since that infamous Emery package "popped open" in a terminal in Los Angeles. With the proverbial broom having swept away what hopefully are the last remnants of a situation that has brought the basketball program to the height of embarrassment, the administration now must take steps to insure that its new administrative and coaching staff doesn't fall into the same trap that has kept the basketball program ensnared in a web created by big wins, big boosters, big exposure, big egos and big money, all of which have resulted in BIG TROUBLE.
The logical course would be to keep outside forces away from the new coach until he has time to settle in the job and chart his own course. It would seem that sessions between the old coach and the new coach could serve a purpose in discussions of personnel and team matters, but there is an inherent feeling that the old coach would introduce his successor to those same forces that have had so much influence on UK basketball for the past two decades.
Matters that should be addressed quickly by the administration include product endorsements, shoe contracts, radio and television shows, calendars, camps, clinics, courtesy cars, purchasing procedures, open bidding versus private negotiation, boosters and booster organizations, involvement by outside persons or organizations in tasks that could and should be performed by athletics department staff members, and private donations as salary supplements for assistant coaches, to name a few.
A deaf ear must be turned to arguments that exercise of "too much" institutional control would make the Wildcat basketball coaching job less attractive to the top coaches in the nation. The university should be looking for a coach whose main objective is to put the Wildcat program back on the winning track, both in victories and prestige, and not to become a millionaire during his first few years on the job.
?FOR ALL OF you out there who believe published reports that UK had a total attendance of 324,702 fans at 15 home games, an average of 21,647 per game, in Rupp Arena during the past season, and that a record crowd of 24,288 attended the UK-LSU game, which had a turnstile count of less than 20,000, then Loretta Lynn and I have some oceanside resort property that we'd like to sell you, cheap and unseen, in our old hometown of Van Lear in eastern Kentucky.
?CANCELLATION OF THE Committee of 101's annual postseason basketball banquet is reminiscent of a similar situation 16 years ago when the annual football banquet was cancelled by Cavan Barnette, Wildcat Club president and close personal friend of John Ray, after the athletics board refused to extend Ray's contract as head football coach. After cancelling the basketball banquet, the 101 group scheduled a private gathering for presentation of annual awards to the team. There was no such gathering for the football team after Ray's departure; instead, the sports information office contacted the sponsors, secured the awards and gave them individually to the players. There were no football banquets held during
the nine-year reign of Fran Curci, who succeeded Ray. Jerry Claiborne, through the K-Men's Association, resumed the banquets when he succeeded Curci in 1982.
PERSONAL OBSERVATION: The annual awards banquets should be for the players, not the fans and coaches.
?DURING A MEDIA function at the Southeastern Regional in Rupp Arena, we told good friend Jerry Tipton of the Herald-Leader that if we had one dollar for every time he has written "Emery package" during the past 12 months, Doris and I could begin my retirement by taking an extended vacation to Hawaii. Throughout the last months of the ordeal, Jerry and other local media reps have expressed sentiments that they wish "this thing would hurry and end." However, we wish to remind these gentlemen of the written and spoken word that perhaps never before have they had such exposure. The "probe" has resulted in a seemingly endless string of bylines, special reports, editorials, leaks, rumors, speculation, and lots of regional and national exposure for the UK media. The question now: When everything on the UK roundball scene has run its course, and "our" guys have come off a natural "high," what are they going to do for an encore?
?OUR SYMPATHIES TO Fred Conger, former Wildcat linebacker who received a crushed leg in a farm-implement accident last summer at Charlotte, N.C., where he is co-head football coach and baseball coach at Charlotte Latin, a private high school, and who had his woes compounded three weeks later when notified that his 19-year-old son Rick had leukemia. Conger's plight was brought to the attention of central Kentuckians by Phil Greer, a local realtor who played with Conger at UK and is president of the K-Men's Association.
"As alumni we try to help former K-Men through the association," Greer said. "We want to help Fred with his medical expenses. Normally, we would ask for donations through our newsletter, but that doesn't come out for two or three months. So now we're asking for our members and anyone else willing to help to send now."
Conger came to UK in 1966 from Feasterville, Pa., where he was a star guard with the Neshaminy High School Redskins. He broke a wrist in preseason practice as a UK freshman and missed action in the Kittens' first three games that season, but was a standout lineman in the season finale against Vanderbilt. Then he missed spring practice because of a knee operation that hadn't healed sufficiently, but he played well against Indiana in the 1967 opening game. Conger then received an injury in the second game, against Ole Miss. He earned his only UK letter that season.
Conger was an assistant at Penn, then for five years head coach at Merychurst College in Erie. He and Nancy and their two sons, Rick and Jeffrey, moved to Charlotte three years ago. While making extra money doing groundskeeping for Latin High, Conger fell off the back of a tractor and underneath a "drag box" used to landscape the baseball field. Emergency surgery was performed for a double compound fracture of his leg. Further surgery saved a foot from amputation.
Meanwhile, his son Rick spent more than 120 days in chemotherapy. After Thanksgiving, he came to the UK Medical Center in hopes of a bone-marrow transplant but was found to have a yeast infection, making him ineligible. The cancer was gone for two months, but then returned. The doctors gave him six months to live.
Those wishing to make a donation should send it to:

Mike Cassity (FB 1973, '74), former Wildcat assis-
tant under Fran Curci, has been selected as a defensive coach at Northeast Louisiana. He previously was defensive backfield coach at Western Kentucky, which means that former UK teammates Greg Nord, now a UK assistant, and John Nochta, teacher-coach at Bourbon County High, will have to travel several miles further to join Cassity in their never-ending quest for big bass.
Larry Kirksey, who also was an assistant under Curci, has replaced Tommy Liggins as coach of running backs at Pitt, where Liggins remains on the staff as coach of tight ends. After leaving UK, Kirksey served several years as an assistant under Galen Hall at Florida.
?MAIL CALL: The following letter is from Turner Gregg, a three-sport star for the Wildcats in the mid-1920s:
Dear sir:
A friend of mine who knew a great deal about my past, and especially about my athletic achievements, gave me a copy of the March 18 edition of The Cats' Pause, in which you had a story about the tragic death of Curtis Sanders. According to your story Curtis was the last survivor of the 1922 football team that defeated Alabama. That would indicate that 1 may be the only living survivor of that team. I was the quarterback of the 22, 23 and 24 teams, and played as many quarters as did Sanders. There were few substitutes in those days because if you were taken out in the first half you were through playing for that game. We played Tennessee at Knoxville in 1924 and our only substitution was made in the last minute of the game. Our center was knocked cold. We won that game 27-6. Made only two substitutions during the game, both in the second half. In those days, we played both offense and defense. I also was a pitcher on the baseball team and Michigan and Notre Dame were two of my victims one season. I made letters in three sportsfootball, baseball and track. One of my teammates, "Turkey" Hughes, beat me by also playing basketball. On June 5, I will be 90 years old and I am still active. In 1987, I shot my age in golf on several outings. I did not make it in '88 and have not played so far this year. I do not use a cart. There is no exercise involved in hitting or putting even if you are playing in the hundreds. When Happy Chandler was governor, he was also the receiver of the defunct Southern Life Insurance Co., which brought him to Louisville frequently. Wlxen he was here he would get in touch with me and we would play golf together (I lost). We also attended football games when Notre Dame played Southern California at South Bend or Chicago. He used to come by with his bodyguard of "Red" Roberts, George Chinn and Joe Burman, the golf pro at Frankfort. Tliey would pick me up and off we would go to South Bend or Chicago, wherever the game was played. I was certainly sorry to learn of Sanders' tragic death. He was a great athlete and a dear friend.
Sincerely Yours,
Turner Gregg Louisville
After leaving UK, Gregg coached "everythingyou did that in those days'for three years at Greenville High School, where his only two losses were to a Morganfield team coached by another former Wildcat, Earle Clements (1916), who went on to become governor of Kentucky and a long-time U.S. Senator Gregg coached two years at Maysville, giving them a district basketball championship in 1929, losing in the regional to eventual state champion Ashland. Then he spent four years with the Sutcliffe Co., opening up territory in Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee and later was involved in the oil and gas business before retiring in 1965. &7i& (jat&' &dui&&
