Dr. Otis A. Singletary University of Kentucky President
Now in his ninth year as president of the University of Kentucky, DR. OTIS A. SINGLETARY is a Mississippian whose route to the Bluegrass State curled through Louisiana, Texas, North Carolina and Washington, D. C.
He came to Lexington from a position as University of Texas vice-chancellor for academic affairs. Previously, in Washington, he had been director of the U. S. Job Corps in the early stages of its development before moving to the American Council on Education as vice-president. He had gone to the capital in 1964 after three years as chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
The UNC appointment terminated Dr. Singletary's first association with the University of Texas, this a seven-year stay that saw him, as a young historian, rise rapidly in rank from instructor to full professor and begin the shift to administrative work, first as associate dean and later as assistant to the president.
The Kentucky president, and his wife the former Gloria Walton, met when both were students at Millsaps College. He later earned master's and doctoral degrees at Louisiana State. The Single-tarys have two daughters, Bonnie and Kendall, and a son, Scott.
Cliff Hagan Director of Athletics
"I've been preparing for this all my life," CLIFF HAGAN said before taking over as athletics director at the University of Kentucky in 1975. Hagan succeeded Harry Lancaster as director after serving as assistant director for three years.
Hagan's path to the athletics directorship began in Owensboro, Kentucky, where he established a then state high school tournament record of 41 points in leading Owensboro to victory over Lafayette in the championship game of the 1949 high school tournament.
At UK, he played on teams that won S6 of 91 games and an NCAA championship (1951). The 1954 team, undefeated in 25 games, elected not to participate in the national tournament.
Under his leadership, the UK athletics department continues to develop success in all areas of endeavor including a strong dedication to the academic well-being of the athletes.

University of Kentucky Wildcats Head Basketball Coach
JOE B. HALL is beginning his seventh season as mentor of the Wildcats, coming off a year in which his senior dominated team captured the 197S NCAA Championship. Since becoming head coach in 1972, succeeding the legendary Adolph F. Rupp, Hall has accumulated a record of 135 wins against 42 losses. His eleven year coaching record stands at 211-98.

Hall became Rupp's top assistant in 1969 when Harry C. Lancaster was named athletics director. His record as freshmen coach was 60-15, including an undefeated (22-0) season (1971-72) which resulted in the Kittens being crowned National Freshmen Champions by Basketball News.
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 Ramstcin Air Base in Frankfurt, Germany and the RAF Base at Mildenhall, England in 1975.

He is a graduate of UK where he played guard under former Coach Adolph F. Rupp.
Parsons came to the University in 195S after an outstanding career as a four-sports star at Harlan High School, where he had a three-year basketball scoring total of 1,276 points.
He was a two-time (1960-61) recipient of the coveted A. B. Chandler award, given annually for the player best exemplifying the qualities of leadership, scholarship, character and ability. Only four other Wildcats have twice been so honored since the award was originated in 1951.
He is married to the former Celia Cawood of Harlan. They have a daughter, Kathv, and a son, Ed.

19 Wildcats Win NCAA-St. Louis Revisited
  Defending UKIT Champ Kentucky In David Versus Goliath Role
Since its 1953 birth, the University of Kentucky Invitational Tournament has become a Yuletidc tradition for residents of the Commonwealth. With regular season tickets to UK games usually sold out well in advance, the tournament offers many Kentuckians an opportunity to attend a Wildcat game and draws fans from the far reaches of the state. This year's tourney will be held December 22-23.
Participants will include nationally ranked Syracuse, Texas A & M and the University of Illinois. Their attendance will bring the total to 48 the number of visitors to have taken part in the annual event. Seven of those visitors have managed to take home the championship trophy.
The Wildcats have captured it 18 times with West Virginia being the only other team to have more than one UKlT title (1957, 1959). Other teams to have won UKIT titles are Dayton in 1955, St. Louis in 1960, Illinois in 1964, Purdue in 1970 and Utah (1976).
This year's field looks like the strongest group of contenders since the beginning of the Joe B. Hall era in 1972. It could possibly be even stronger than the 1976 tournament when Utah won the championship while the Cats played without three leading players who were benched for disciplinary reasons.
"I think the rankings of the teams alone tell the kind of field the tournament will have," comments assistant coach Dick Parsons. Texas A cc M and Syracuse arc contenders for top twenty ranking and Illinois is a veteran team \\ illi great potential.
As an example of the caliber of play these teams arc producing, Texas A & M, Kentucky's first round opponent, has lost 81-65 to North Carolina State this season but defeated top ten ranked Indiana 54-49 in the Scawolf Classic.
Shelby Metcalfe's Aggies will have a trio of returning starters and has added junior transfer Dave Dritton from Potomac State Junior College in West Virginia. He also has freshman Rudy Woods, a 6T1" center that was heavily recruited by Kentucky during his high school career.
Returning from last year's 12-15 squad will be David Goff. nicknamed "The

Prince." Goff led the team in assists and steals and contributed 5.5 points-per-game (ppg). Sophomore Vernon Smith, a 6'7" forward, led the Aggies with an 8.4 rebound average per game and was second in scoring at 14.0 ppg. At the other forward spot will be Rynn Wright, a 6'6" sophomore who averaged 8.5 ppg. in 1978.
By the time the UKIT rolls around, the Aggies will be well versed on tournament play, having taken part in the Golden Gate Classic which includes national powers San Francisco and Nevada-Las Vegas.
The Cats have defeated the College Station team in two previous games. In 1941, Kentucky downed the Aggies 49-29 and in 1946, UK roared to a 83-18 win. This will be the Aggies' first UKIT appearance.
Another newcomer to the UKIT will be Syracuse, a team over which Kentucky holds an 8-4 advantage.
The Orangemen will return nine let-termen to this year's squad, including 6T1" center Roosevelt Bouie who averaged 10.5 ppg. last season.
Coach Jim Boeheim was pleased with the performance of some of his players during a post-season tour in Russia and Yugoslavia and is optimistic about the team's season.
"Our backcourt is the key for us," Boeheim told a national sports publication recently. It will be led by Hal Cohen and Marty Head, a pair that averaged just over a combined 12 ppg. with last year's 22-6 team.
Other top players to watch are Louis Orr, a 6'8" forward and Dale Shackle-ford, a 6'6" forward-guard.
Rounding out the visitors for this year's tournament will be Illinois, a virtually unknown commodity.
Last year the Fighting Illini managed only a 13-14 record with a seventh place finish in the Big 10.
But this season, coach Lou Henson is optimistic with seven returning letter-men and an outstanding transfer from Indiana Universitv in Derek Holcomb (6T1", 230).
Returning starters for the Illini arc guard Rob Judson, who tallied 7.3 ppg., and forwards Neil Bresnahan and Mark Smith, who averaged 8.1 and 11.6 ppg-, respectively. James Griffin is Henson's outstanding freshman recruit, a 6'10" forward from Texas.
"I think we'll be an extremely fine team, said Henson, "but we'll still be
behind at least four or five teams in the Big 10."
"This is the best field we've ever had," commented Kentucky head coach Joe B. Hall. "Syracuse is expected to be the favorite. They're very strong, very big and nationally ranked."
Hall adds that he doesn't expect his 1978 Wildcats to be picked to even finish second. "We'll probably be the third pick. I hope we're third and not fourth. I doubt if we will be playing our best ball then," Hall added.
However, it is the Cats' invitational tournament and they can be expected to make fur fly before relinquishing the championship.
