COACH  James "Babe" McCarthy CO-CAPTAINS  Bailey Howell and Jerry Keeton
9 ADOLPH FREDERICK RUPPWhen the sport of basketball is mentioned today, a direct chain of thought eventually brings out the name of one man who has become virtually synonymous with the game over the past quarter-centuryAdolph Rupp of Kentucky.
Such unprecedented recognition for the fabulous cage mentor is only natural since his deeds in the past 27 years as head man of the famous Wildcats of the Bluegrass have resulted in phenomenal success as witnessed by the record of 561 victories out of 658 startsa winning average of better than 85 percent.
Rupp is recognized by sports authorities as the nation's winningest basketball mentor and one of the game's most astute and colorful students. The amazing "Man in the Brown Suit" is credited in most quarters with doing more than any other modern tutor to make basketball a national spectator sport. From the very outset of his career at Kentucky, which began in 1930, he has introduced or popularized many new and revised trends in the game that have aided ma-
terially in making the country basketball-minded. One such innovation was the controlled fast break offensive pattern which has since become the crowd-pleasing trademark of Wildcat cage teams.
The colorful Kentucky Colonel has become, without a doubt, the best known and most widely quoted cage coach in America and his personal fame is equalled only by the success he has instilled in the highly-publicized Kentucky basketball powerhouses.
The record shows an unparalleled honor roll of 1714 Southeastern Conference titles (one was shared), three NCAA Tournament championships, and a National Invitation Tournament trophy. Added to this list of honors, Rupp's distinguished Wildcats own four titles from the Sugar Bowl Tournament and three triumphs in their own high calibre U.K. Invitational Tournament as well as Olympic Trials collegiate bracket laurels in 1948 and a nominal world's championship through participation as one half of the successful USA entry in the '48 Olympic Games.
