Jamal Mashbum answered the
question no UK basketball fan
wanted answered yesterday.

The junior power forward, who
led the UK basketball team to
three consecutive 20-plus win
seasons. announced at Joe B. Hall
Wildcat Lodge that he will forgo
his final season of eligibility and
make himself available for the
NBA draft this summer.

“As you already know from the
beginning of the season, Coach
Pitino said l was going to be one
of the top three picks, and it
seems like I won‘t be coming
back next year to be with the Uni-
versity of Kentucky basketball
team," Mashbum said. “He
thinks I'm ready. so I guess I

Mashbum cited numerous rea-
sons for his decision. Pitino‘s as-
sessment that he’s ready. his fi-
nancial situation and simple cost-
betiefit analysis.

“The thing about Jamal is he
has everything to lose and noth-
ing to gain by staying,“ Pitino
said. “You have to strike while
the iron is hot. lle's hot, and he‘s
ready. He does make people bet-

larnal Mashbuni‘s decision to
pass up his last year of eligibility
at UK for a chance in the NBA
draft has students talking.

Reactions to yesterday‘s an~
nouncement were mixed. Some
students said he should give the
Wildcats another year. while oth-
ers said Mashbum deserves to go
lor tlic money and glory of the
pro leagues


ter on the court, and that‘s what the
NBA needs."

Pitino, a former coach of the
New York Knicks, announced ear-
lier this season that he would feel
out his sources in the NBA and, if
Mashbum had the potential to be
one of the top three selections. he
would advise him to go pro. With
his performance this season. the de-
cision seemed inevitable.

Mashbum said he's known he
would probably leave for most of
the season but that he made a com-
mitment to that decision “sometime
this week."

Part of the reason for the an-
nouncement yesterday was so that
UK could honor Mashbum in some
manner after UK‘s final horiie
game Saturday against Auburn at
Rupp Arena.

Pitino said the celebration for
Mashbum will follow the game and
will be separate from the annual
ceremony for UK‘s graduating sen.
iors. which happens before the
game. Neither he or Mashbum
wanted to take attention from sen-
iors Junior Braddy. Dale Brown
and Todd Svoboda. he said.

But the send-off for Mashbum
should be a big one. much like the
one to which (‘awood Ledford was
treated last season because UK fans

Amy Kieth. an elementary educa-
tion sophomore, said she agrees
with Mashhum's decision.

“I don‘t blame him." she said.
“He's a good player. If l had that
much talent. l‘d leave too."

A not-so-positive opinion came
frorn sophomore Greg Williams

“I couldn‘t care less." he said.

Katie Dwyer, a finance major,
said she hopes Mashbum doesn’t
leave UK behind totally.

“I wish him the best." the senior
said. “I hope he never forgets the

but just look at the honors. Mash-

individual awards or cold statistics.
and Rick Puino gives Mashbum
credit for a larger feat. Looking at
the big picture. Pitino said. Mash-
burri has played an integral role in
rebuilding a fallen program.

“There was no rhyme or reason
for Jamal Mashbum to come to
Kentucky." Pitino said. "It takes a
special man to do that because to
most of these kids it's all glitter and
glamour. ‘Me. not play iii the

A new campus organization

at UK. but it won‘t be seeking stu-

lnstead, it will bring together stu-

The ultimate goal of the group.

overall improvement of campus
life. said Becky Jordan. assistant
dean of students.

“Better-informed parents indi-

rectly help first-year students suc-

to better retention, which is a main
goal of the University."

The group is the culmination of
nearly five years‘ research, said
Jordan. who was instrumental in its

universities with well-established

Puin Makes You Beautiful is
the JudyBats' third release and
documents the band's growth
since its formation in l986. Per-

of the recruitment of producer

ists as Sinead ()'(‘onnor and ill.

Nonetheless. Duran Duran has

UK‘s Class of 1993 may not be
as “unforgettable" % last year‘s
crop. but this year‘s trio has at least
one thing in conunon: None of
them expected to make it to this

A walk-on, a former walk-on and
a transfer who almost left comprise
one of the most improbable groups
ever honored during Senior Day.
which will be held before tomorrow
night's game against Aubum.

Junior Braddy is the only four-
year veteran of the three 'lhe 6-
foot—3 senior frorn Jacksonville.
Fla. got a chance to walk on the
probation-saddled 1989-90 team
which only had eight scholarship

But Braddy almost lost his
chance when he was late for UK
coach Rick Pitino’s first practice.

“it was just a misunderstanding,“
Braddy said. “1 set my alarm clock
for 7 pm. instead of 7 am,"

Pitino wanted to cut him. but as-
sistant coaches Herb Sendek and
Billy Donovan talked him out of it.
Braddv eventually earned a scholar-

ship and was named co-captain this

Braddy said past celebrations
have been emotional. especially last
year's with Richie Farmer. Deron
Feldhaus. John Pelphrey and Sean

“1 think it was really touching.“
Braddy said. “It'll be the same way
for me. I've had axeally great expe-
rience here.“

The last person who thought Dale
Brown would take part in Senior
Day was Dale Brown. The 6-foot-2
junior college transfer struggled
with his confidence last season and
made-almost weekly visits to Pin-
no's office. wanting to transfer.

As he watched last year‘s Senior
Day. Brown didn't think he'd ever

"1 knew right then that 1 wouldn't
be here this season.“ he said.

l’itino convinced him to stick
around. and Brown said he's happy
he did.

“1‘11 miss this place." he said
“l'm enjoying it while l‘tn here.
and 1 hope to come away with a na-
tional championship."

Todd Svoboda is perhaps the
least probable —— if not most popu—
lar —- honoree. The 6-foot-‘l center
