Pitino hands out team awards following home finale
Reggie Hanson, UK's junior center, deans up, takes home four awards
TCP staff report
Extracurricular activities before and after Kentucky's thrilling 98-95 victory over Auburn last Saturdaythe 26th consecutive win the Wildcats have racked up in their home finalewere a mixture of traditions, both old and new.
Prior to the contest, the 24,174 on hand witnessed a pair of age-old UK customs: UK senior Derrick Miller hurling himself through
AWARD-WINNERS (Left to right): Radio play-by-play announcer Cawood Ledford and coach Rick Pitino share a joke during the presentations; Reggie Hanson is congratulated by Gov. A.B.

a large paper hoop bearing his likeness; then another tear-jerking rendention of "My Old Kentucky Home," given this year by Othello Pumphrey of the Lexington Symphony.
The estimated 20,000 that stuck around after the game, however, were treated to something new. As part of his expanded post-game radio showcomplete with several commercial breaks and also taped for delayed telecast by the UK TV NetworkWildcat coach Rick Pitino, with the assistance of radio play-by-play voice Cawood Ledford, handed out team awards as voted on by the UK coaching staff.
The awards presentation is usually reserved for Kentucky's basketball awards banquet following the season, but Pitino said he wanted to change the format so that more fans could witness the proceedings.
In previous years, awards have almost always been distributed evenly among team members, sort of a share-the-wealth philosophy. Not so this year, as five UK players took home all the hardwareheaded by junior center Reggie Hanson who earned a team-high four trophies. Sophomore forwards Deron Feldhaus and John Pelphrey won three
awards each. Miller and sophomore Richie Farmer won one each. UK's assistant coaches even got in on the act. Pitino awarded his four assistants the "Best Defensive Player Award," citing their endless hours reviewing videotape and work on the practice floor.
The various award-winners are as follows:
Best free-throw shooter: Richie Farmer Most rebounds: Reggie Hanson Fewest turnovers/minutes played: Deron Feldhaus
Best defensive player: UK assistant coaches Herb Sendek, Billy Donovan, Tubby Smith and Ralph Willard
 Mr. Hustle award: Deron Feldhaus Leadership award: Reggie Hanson Student-athlete of the year: John Pelphrey Outstanding senior: Derrick Miller Most improved player: Deron Feldhaus Fan of the year: Gov. A.B. "Happy" Chandler Best play maker: John Pelphrey
 Mr. Deflection (based upon total steals, recoveries, blocked shots, tipped passes, etc.): Reggie Hanson, John Pelphrey Most valuable player: Reggie Hanson

Pitino's 'Cats have chance to go out with a bang
Two more games and Kentucky basketball fans can begin focusing on a) the Kentucky baseball season, b) the Wildcat football spring practice, or c) Wildcat basketball recruiting for next season.
Such is the way of life in the Bluegrass. Each of the above will have his/her followers, but there are a pair of hardwood events left before putting the sneakers up with the mothballs for a few months.
Kentucky concluded its home schedule Saturday with a victory not unlike most of the 13 others this season, a cliff-hanger to the end.
It wasn't supposed to be this way. Kentucky was supposed to maul the Tigers, a team that was picked to fight UK for the cellar position of the SEC.
In the end, the two are battling it out, but for the No. 4 spot in the league. So, in the end, Kentucky won its final home game the same way it won most of the others, with determination and hustle to the very end in a tight contest.
The 98-95 victory capped a perfect 9-0 league mark at home, a feat most everyone thought impossible back in early January.
The victory also insured UK of avoiding a second straight losing season, another mission most thought impossible. I know the Wildcats' gung ho, supercharged Rick Pitino would cringe at the thought of using the term "avoiding a second straight losing season" because he doesn't believe in negatives, but Rick, old buddy, it got pretty negative around this place the past several months. Hard times were knocking almost every day.
Kentucky basketball was fair game for everyone. You know how politicans are, they gauge the pulse of the peasants and then the bigwigs go grandstanding. Problem was, even UK's good ole college prez chipped in on the action. Of course now, everyone knows he was only shining his own crown. But you got a good one now, he's a good ole Kentucky boy, one who will support you and the program through thick and thin.
Hey, Rick, he's got to be a pretty good fella. He's smart enough to know where to be when the Big Blue and the Big Orange get together. That's what I call support.
OK, OK, the season isn't over. There's still Ole Miss Wednesday and Notre Dame Monday, but you'll have to pardon some of the fans because of all the hoopla last Saturday and the fact your kids have already chalked up at least a .500 season.
TWENTY-SIX DOWN, TWO TO GO
Twenty-six games down and two to go.
As Pitino said after Saturday game, if the 'Cats don't win another game, it's been an exciting and rewarding year. But the best could be yet to come.
A win in either game and UK would begin another long string of winning seasons. Over the past half-century, UK has suffered only three non-winning seasons, two were 13-13 slates in 1967 and 1974, the other a 13-19 slate last season.
On Wednesday, UK goes to Ole Miss, which has been one of the league's major
disappointments this season. Picked to finish as high as third in the SEC by some preseason publications, the Rebels have suffered from a rugged pre-conference schedule and several untimely injuries.
Still, Ed Murphy has a great player in Gerald Glass to develop his game plan around and this will be the Ole Miss version of senior night in Oxford.
Add the road factor and UK's chances of pulling an upset are not very bright. UK's won only once on the road this season and that came at Florida where most everyone else has enjoyed like success.
On paper, an upset victory in South Bend sounds almost as ridiculous, but there could be a remote possibility. First of all, Notre Dame's NCAA dreams are on the bubble, so to speak.
Digger Phelps' hopes of being invited to the big show were dealt two serious setbacks recently. After getting a monumental boost by shocking Syracuse on the road, the Irish were upset at home by DePaul and then lost to Georgia Tech.
The Irish find themselves in almost a win or else situation the rest of the way. Which brings us to this weekend.
First, Notre Dame hosts top-ranked Missouri on Saturday. Two nights later, the Irish close their home season with UK.
Kentucky could benefit either way. If Notre Dame beats Missouri, the Irish could be celebrating too quickly when a 14-13 or 15-12 non-ranked UK comes in.
On the other hand, if Notre Dame loses to Missouri, the Irish could be depressed from blowing their NCAA slot.
Either way, UK has everything to gain and nothing to lose in this one. Plus, it will be Kentucky's only nationally-televised game of the year, so to speak.
SportsChannel America, which has rights to Notre Dame games, plans to televise the game on a tape-delayed basis all across the country. It's no big deal for the Irish, but to the young Wildcats who have fought their hearts out. well, it could just been the extra edge needed to cap off an unbelievable comeback.
THOMPSON COULD COMMIT TO UK
Auburn might have been on the minds of most UK fans last Friday evening but Pitino was more concerned about a recruiting trip to eastern Kentucky.
Pitino was to fly by helicopter to Paintsville and take in the Feds Creek-Johnson Central game. His aim was to take a look at hot-shooting guard Jody Thompson, a youngster who some say may be the state's purest shooter since the days of ex-Wildcat Troy McKinley.
For the past few weeks, Pitino has been lamenting the loss of departing senior Derrick Miller and the lack of people to take his place from three-point range next year.
Problem is, even if someone is out there to fill the bill, UK has no scholarship available because the NCAA-imposed limit (three) has been used by Jamal Mashburn. Gimel Martinez and Carlos Toomer.
But reports out of eastern Kentucky has it that Thompson would be more than
willing to walk on at UK this fall if he is promised a scholarship for the remaining three years.
Lately, Thompson has been attracting lots of attention, and from some big-name schools like Louisville, Ohio State and a few others.
So Friday night was the first time Pitino had a chance to watch the youngster in person since the opening recruiting period started in late February.
Pitino accomplished his mission, but it wasn't without an obstactle. His helicopter began icing up and was forced to cut the trip short. The aborted trip ended at the airport in Mt. SterlingPitino thought it was "Mt. Pilot'where the party borrowed a car for the rest of the trip.
The good news is that, according to our reports, both Pitino and Thompson were happy about the eastern Kentucky trip.
Thompson scored 31 points and indications are that Pitino was more than impressed.
Insiders tell us that Thompsonwho was on hand for the UK-Auburn gamemost
likely will announce his intention to attend UK on Monday, Feb. 26 (this issue of TCP actually went to press on Sunday evening).
HAPPY'S DAY
I don't know who's responsible (let's just say all UK officials can take a bow), but wasn't that a really nice thing to do when former Gov. A.B. "Happy" Chandler was honored as the Wildcats Fan of the Year after the final home game Saturday?
Even more moving was the embrace given him by the 'Cats' Most Valuable Player, Reggie Hanson.
It's been three years since Happy has delivered his version of "My Old Kentucky Home" at the Wildcats' home finale as his health has not permitted. Although confined to a wheelchair, not even sub-freezing temperature and snow flurries could keep the man away from Rupp Arena Saturday.
A lot has been written and said about the former governor over the past couple years and not all of it has been flattering. The governor is aging and in poor health, a condition that would not permit most of us to be in full control of our real thoughts and actions. Sometimes his words have not matched his thoughts, but his actions over a lifetime have been of far greater importance. Those rulings and decisions cannot and should not be ignored.
No one can deny what he has meant to the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the thousands upon thousands of people whose lives he has touched. From the young and unfortunate to the dramatic Jackie Robinson ruling that first permitted blacks in the major league baseball.
It ceitainly was an honor well-deserved and one that rates a bow for CM. Newton and Rick Pitino.
HITS AND MISSES:
Among the UK officials attending the
Kentucky-Tennessee game in Knoxville last Wednesday was UK interim president Charles Wethington, who hopes to become the university's full-time president. A longtime UK administrator, Wethington is best known for building one of, if not, the nation's finest community college systems. His success with the community colleges is one of several reasons why many believe he is not only qualified, but the one best suited for the UK presidency. Obviously, the man has a great feel for the needs of all Kentuckians as a result of his contacts and travels around the commonwealth. The fact that he is a Ken-tuckian should not be held against him. Last time I checked, most Kentuckians are proud of their heritage. Wethington and UK athletics director CM. Newton accompanied the team to Knoxville...
Departing the local scene after the SEC tournament in Orlando will be Scott Fowler, the UK beat writer for the Louisville Courier-Journal. Fowler, one of the bright young writers in the country, will be joining the Miami Herald where his duties will included covering the University of Florida. You might say the newspaper will be getting a young writer with plenty of experience in what he is about to cover, that being the current investigation of the Florida athletics program. You'll be reading more about Fowler in the future, I'm sure, because he's destined to become one of the great sportswriters of our time. Just you wait and see. Sorry to see you go, Scott...
Get well wishes go out to coach Pitino's wife, Joanne, who has been in a New York hospital the past couple weeks but is expected home, perhaps even before you read this. Mrs. Pitino endured complications during the pregnancy of the Pitino's first child but doctors expect everything to be OK. For those of you who have called our offices about a mailing address for the Pitinos, mail should be sent to the UK Basketball Office, Memorial Coliseum, Lexington, Ky. 40506...
Introduced during the Kentucky-Auburn game as part of "Bring Back the 'Cats" series were ex-stars Bob Burrow and James Lee. Lee, who was the popular sixth man on the 1978 national championship team, was lean and mean, but as always, with that friendly smile. Actually, James is in better shape today than he was when coaches were trying to keep his weight down during the March stretch drive in 1978...
Congratulations to former Wildcat Jim Master, who got his first regional television opportunity last Saturday as a color analyst. The Jefferson-Pilot network tabbed Master to work with veteran Marty Bren-naman on the telecast of the Vandy-Florida game from Nashville. Master, who handles color with play-by-play announcer Ralph Hacker on the UK Television Network, was approached by J-P a couple months ago. And a tip of the hat to Hacker who OK'ed Master's skipping the UK-Auburn game to take advantage of the (Continued on page 22) 	UK OPPONENT SCOUTING REPORT

TENNESSEE 102, KENTUCKY IOO UT's Vols survive UK 102-100
'Cats rally to cut 21-point deficit to two, can't pull off repeat of earlier come-from-behind win over UT
by TCP managing editor Russell Rice
KNOXVILLE, Tenn.  They came, they saw, they almost conquered.
The battling Wildcats of Rick Pitino, encouraged by an estimated 5.000 UK fans who trailed a stream of blue down the 170-mile stretch of 1-75 from Lexington to Knoxville, fought valiantly from 19 points down at halftimeand 18 down as late as the 7:45 mark of the second halfbefore losing to Tennessee 102-100 before 20,251 fans in Thompson-Boling Arena.
The orange-clad Vols owned the Wildcats during the latter part of the first half, but Pitino's band of seven iron men put on a patented second-half run that cut a 58-39 Vol halftime lead to 91-82 with 6:13 remaining.
During that spurt, Kentucky got three-pointers from Richie Farmer, John Pelphrey and Reggie Hanson as the Wildcats finished with 26 such attempts, breaking a record of 24 set 11 days earlier by LSU.
Then the Wildcats cut the lead to 100-98 on a short jump shot by Hanson with 1:18 to play. The junior center from Somerset, fouled on the play, bounced his free throw off the front of the rim.
Hanson had a chance to tie the score at 0:32. missing the front end of a one-and-one. Greg Bell hit two free throws 10 seconds later and UT was able to run out the clock after Hanson scored inside with 0:07 remaining.
"Reggie was nearly exhausted," Pitino said of Hanson, who led UK scorers with 22 points and seven rebounds. "I told him it was a real accomplishment just to hit the rim (on his missed free throws down the stretch)."
Hanson played all but one minute of the fast-paced game. Derrick Miller logged 38, Deron Feldhaus 36, Pelphrey 33 and Sean Woods 26 minutes.
"In the NBA, you learn how to lose and go on to the next game," said Pitino, who coached the New York Knicks the last two seasons. "For the first time in my life, I can honestly say losing doesn't come easy, but to a certain extent I can accept a loss because of how my team performed.
"With this style of play if you don't have 10 guys, it's not ineffective. It's kind of bordering on the impossible."
He promised help is on the way and the Wildcats soon would have the needed personnel to fit into his general scheme of things.
The two teams fought evenly in the early going. The Vols jumped to a 12-2 lead, but UK fought back twice to take four-point leads. The score was tied at 35-35 with 6:31 remaining in the first half when Tennessee scored 12 unanswered points. Jeff Brassow hit an inside shot for UK, but UT scored eight more unanswered points to lead 55-37 with two minutes remaining in the half.
A layup by Pelphrey was countered by Vol freshman Allan Houston, who hit three of four free-throw attempts for the 58-39 UT margin at halftime.
The Vols went ahead 60-39 on a Reese dunk at the start of the second half and led by 21 on two other occasions before the Wildcats made their big run.
The Wildcats fell to 13-12 overall, 9-7 in the SEC, dropping to fifth place, a half-game behind Tennessee (14-10 overall, 9-6 in the SEC). The loss was their ninth in 10 games
UK-UT ITEMS NOT TO GO UNNOTICED
The win for Tennessee unknotted the long series between the two schools in Knoxville. The Vols now hold a 36-35 advantage over Kentucky in K-town. The Wildcats still lead the overall series, which began in 1910, 111-56.
 Former Wildcat player Eric Manuel, who transferred to Hiwassee Collegea two-year school Madisonville, Tenn., about 70 miles from Knoxvillelast season after the NCAA ruled him ineligible to play for UK, was among the 20,251 in attendance.
 Also in the stands was UK interim president Charles Wethington.
away from Rupp Arena.
In an earlier game in Rupp, UK came from a 15-point deficit to defeat the Vols 95-83.
"I reminded the players on the bench, we aren't going to have another Lexingon," Vol coach Wade Houston said, referring to that game. "We were going to fight through the screens to prevent the three-point baskets. Whatever it took, we weren't going to quit."
Bell led UT scorers with 29 points; also in double figures were Ian Lockhart (21), Houston (20) and Reese (18). Joining Hanson in double figures for UK were Feldhaus, 20, and Miller and Pelphrey, 18 each.
In addition to his usual contributions on offense, Miller limited Houston to 0-for-4 from the floor in the second half.
"I was a little surprised they didn't go to
Houston more when we came back on them," Miller said. "He's such a great player probably the best young player in the conference. At the end I had no legs from playing defense, and from trying to deny him the ball, so I tried to be careful to take no bad shots."
Miller was echoing the words of Pitino, who had been highly complimentary of Houston, son of the Tennessee coach, after the UK-UT game in Lexington.
The Wildcat coach had complimented the young Houston on a fine freshman beginning and predicted that he would be a star of the future.
Which means the Wildcats can look to more interesting matchups during the next
three years.

BATTLE ON THE GLASS: Kentucky freshman forward Jeff Brassow and DONT FALL, RICHIE: Auburn speedy point guard Reggie Gallon has the Auburn's Ronnie Battle fight for a loose rebound. Battle proved to be battle- advantage over Wildcat reserve Richie Farmer. However, Farmer had his tested, scoring a game-high 30 points, including four three-pointers.        moments, including a trey in the second half, giving UK a 66-57 lead.
