DICK PARSONS, in his fifth year as Joe B. Hall's No. 1
assistant, returned to the University as baseball coach in 1969. Before giving up his position to join basketball on a full time basis, he molded a team (1971) which established or tied 15 school records.
Much of Kentucky's defensive prowess on the court can be n lited to the talent of LEONARD HAMILTON, a third year assistant, who came to UK after three years as an assistant at Austin Peay State University.
\ native ol Detroit, Michigan JIM LONG joined the UK staff last vpnr as innior varsity coach and scout. In addition to his coaching duties, Long lends his talents to recruiting, scouting and directing UK's summer basketball camp.
Joe B. Hall
University of Kentucky Wildcats Head Basketball Coach
JOE B. HALL'S record as Wildcat head coach for the past four years stands at 79-36. During the 1976 season his team won the National Invitational Tournament and ended the year with a 20-10 record.
Hall became No. 1 varsity assistant and head freshman Coach to Rupp after Harry C. Lancaster was named permanent athletic director Feb. 1, 1969. His record with the freshmen was 60-15, including an undefeated (22-0) season (1971-72) which resulted in the Kittens being crowned National Freshman Champions by the Basketball News.
During his first season as head coach, the Wildcats won their last nine conference games to sew up the SEC title.
His ten-year coaching record is 155-92. Broken down, it shows a 57-50 five-year mark at Regis, a 19-6 record at Central Missouri, and a 79-36 four-year record at Kentucky.
A popular personality on the clinic and convention circuits, Hall also has had much international exposure. In addition to the Globetrotters tour in 1951, and the "Down Under" tour in 1974, he has helped conduct basketball clinics for the U.S. Army in Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska (1968) and at Ramstein Air Base in Frankfurt, Germany and the RAF Base at Mildenhall, England in 1975. He also was Olympic Trials coach under Hank Iba at the Air Force Academy in July 1972 and is a member of the 1976 Olympic Basketball Committee.

There's nothing wrong with a little materialism.
We'll admit it. One of the selling features of Army ROTC is just plain eold cash . . . nearly $2000 during your junior and senior years of college. There's also the opportunity for full-tuition scholarships. And a $10,000 a year salary as an Army officer when you graduate.
But we've got other good things to offer you, too. College courses which challenge you both mentally and physically. Management training and experience you'll find valuable in civilian as well as military jobs. And instant leadership responsibility in your first job after college.
If any of this interests you, check out Army ROTC. And even if you enroll just for the money, you'll graduate with something worth a lot more . .. gold bars of an Army officer.
ARMY ROTC. LEARN WHAT IT TAKES TO LEAD.

10 Wildcats Of The Past
(PUBLISHER'S NOTE: Tonight we begin a series of articles on "Wildcats Of The Past" which will feature UK basketball players who hold special spots in the hearts of Kentucky fans. WILDCAT TIPOFF tonight spotlights Ed Beck and will feature "Cotton" Nash in the January 22 LSU program.)
Ed Beck lettered in basketball at the University of Kentucky in 1956, 57, and 58. He was a member of the 1956-57 team (23-5) that was ranked 3rd nationally in both the AP and UPI polls, was UKIT champion, SEC champion, Sugar Bowl champ and was a participant in the NCAA toumey.
Beck came to UK from Ft. Valley, Georgia. He was a rangy 6-7 center who sparked his Ft. Valley High team to two Class B state championships. He averaged 12 points a game in his senior year and was a Class B All-State Tournament choice for three successive seasons.
In his freshman year at Kentucky (1954-55) the UK Fact Book says of him, "Beck is regarded as one of the most highly promising prospects on the talent loaded freshman squad. Extremely agile and fast for his size, Ed has displayed an excellent hook shot as well as a good jump shot."
Other members of that "talented" freshman team were: Vernon Hatton, John Crigler, Phil Johnson, Hilly Ray Cassady and Abraham Lincoln Collins-worth.
Beck was a licensed Methodist minister when he enrolled at Kentucky and while on the court a stellar pivotman, off the floor he held revivals, preached sermons, led prayer meetings and talked to Sunday School classes, youth meetings and civic clubs.
Beck wrote the following to Russell Rice, Sports Information Director at the University of Kentucky which Rice published in "Big Blue Machine", the story of Wildcat basketball.
I was the first clergyman and may be the last ever to play for Rupp. There was some speculation upon my arrival in September of 1954 that I would not last long because of Adolph's projected gruff manner.
During the freshman season we approached the first Sunday practice and he called me into his office to state that if in any way practicing basketball on Sunday afternoon was against my religious feelings or sensitivities I would not have to practice and in no way would this hurt my chances with the team. I conveyed to him my feelings that first, it was not in any way against my religious principles and second, that
1954 - 58 6-7 Center
I was a part of the team and wanted to participate when and where they did. I felt if any special consideration was given there might be some harm done. He was appreciative of my feelings but wanted to convey his understanding on whatever position I took.
. . . On more than one occasion at a practice he would quote the Bible and sometimes change words to communicate and with a twinkle in his eyes he would look at me and say, "That's what the good book says, doesn't it ?"
The UK Fact Book for 1957-58 (Beck's senior year) says: "Every season Ed brings the pulpit and basketball together. He sets an example on the playing floor that is not only noteworthy from a character standpoint but also from an athletic point of view. Perhaps never, however, has an athlete been tested as Ed Beck was last season."
The testing was the strain of playing ball and attending school with the knowledge that his wife, Billie, lay dying of cancer in a Macon, Georgia hospital. After every visit to Macon, Billie urged Ed back to Lexington, UK and basketball. She saw him play once during that yearthe Kentucky victory over Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
Ed Beck was a fine rebounder and defensive player who for the most part left the scoring to other members of the team. He served as president of the K Club (varsity lettermen) and was president of the College of Arts and Sciences senior class. He also was named winner of the Chandler Trophy, an award donated by radio station WVLK in the name of Governor A. B. Chandler for highest qualities of scholarship, leadership, character and ability.
Beck is presently Vice-President of Windmill Dinner Theatre Corporation in Dallas, Texas.

Kentucky's last match with Tennessee, on the Volunteers' home court, was a 92-85 defeat for the Wildcats, that featured 7 technical fouls. Kentucky's Truman Claytor and Tennessee's Johnny Darden were ejected from the floor, along with two photographers from the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Tennessee won both games of the annual rivalry last season, the first sweep since 1967. Kentucky's powerful inside game led to a 48-48 tie at the half, with Mike Phillips contributing 18 points. Phillips was held to only 2 points in the second half by Tennessee's Doug Ashworth and a sagging inside defense that sometimes saw four men guarding the UK pivot man.
Tennessee was led in scoring by Ernie Grunfeld with 32 points, including 10 straight in a one minute and 15 second span in the first half. Mike Jackson, UT guard, shattered Kentucky's second half defense with 20 of his 28 points.
Claytor and Darden were ejected for fighting in the first half, and a dozen police officers poured on to the court to keep order. Both coaches were given technicals for protesting the call and in the ensuing struggle, two Herald-Leader photographers were sent from the building for entering the playing floor to take pictures.
Later in the contest, Grunfeld was assessed a technical for protesting a call, and Mike Phillips earned two technicals for the same infraction.
Kentucky leads in the series with Tennessee that dates back to 1910, 96 wins to 42 defeats.

I can remember some great basketball games between Kentucky and Tennessee. The rivalry in both Lexington and Knoxville is very strong. I know that in Coach Rupp's last season (1972), the Cats had to beat Tennessee to go to the NCAA tournament. They ended up tying for the conference championship, but Kentucky won both games that season. Tennessee was at the free throw line at the end of the game, but missed, so Kentucky came away a winner by one point.
I guess the game I remember most, and I can't even tell you the final score, was the first time Coach Rupp ever used a zone defense. Coach Rupp always maintained that he would never use a zone. He thought it ought to be outlawed, like it was in the pros. But the year the "Runts" were sophomores, they went into the 1-3-1, and it took Tennessee by surprise. You could tell the Volunteers had spent no time preparing for it, and the Cats came away a comfortable winner.
The Vols have had some great ball players. I think Ernie Grunfeld is a tremendous basketball player. He is super one-on-one. If he can isolate one defensive man on him, he is almost unstoppable. He's not real fast, but he's very strong, and he protects the ball very well. Bernard King is probably a better pro prospect, but at the college level, I have to go with Grunfeld as their best ever.
This might be the best Tennessee team ever. They are basically the same team that Coach Mears had last year, and they were runnersup in the conference. They are going to be a contender for the conference title this year and could end up in the top ranks.
