Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Details


The Kentucky Wildcats have an elite basketball program that is arguably the best college basketball program in history. Kentucky currently has the most wins and best winning percentage of any college program in NCAA Division 1 basketball. Current head coach John Calipari has continued the winning tradition of the program and continues to attract the best players to the program and eventually send a good chunk of his players to the NBA. When it comes to Kentucky basketball, they’re always in the conversation for the National Championship.

The Kentucky Wildcats basketball program is rumored to have roots all the way back to 1903 where a team was organized and the school started to play. From 1903 through the 1920’s, Kentucky’s basketball team was growing but and had some winning seasons. The program was started to become nationally recognized when its legendary head coach, Adolph Rupp, was hired in 1930. Rupp formerly played for Kansas under the legendary coach Phog Allen. Rupp transformed the Kentucky team and was dominant throughout his career coaching at Kentucky. Rupp coached from 1930-1972. In his time coaching at Kentucky, Rupp never had a losing season. The success Rupp had really set the tone for the program heading forward. Rupp had an overall record of 876-190 at the end of his career with, 4 National Championships (1948, 1949, 1951, and 1958), 6 Final Four appearances, 13 SEC Championships, 5 time National Coach of the Year, and 7 time SEC Coach of the Year. Rupp was forced into retirement in 1972. Kentucky named its stadium after their legendary head coach, Rupp Arena. Joe B. Hall, who was an assistant to Rupp, would have the difficult task of being the next head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats. Hall had a good amount of success and coached from 1972-1985. Over his time with Kentucky, Hall led the Wildcats to a 297-100 record with 1 National Championship in 1978, 3 Final Four appearances, and 1 SEC Championship. Hall was also the National Coach of the Year in 1978 and a 4 time SEC Coach of the Year. Eddie Sutton became the next head coach after Hall retired in 1985. Sutton had some success but only coached until 1989. Sutton had a 88-39 record over his 4 years and made the National Tournament 3 times. Sutton resigned as head coach due to NCAA violations. The next head coach was Rick Pitino who was coming from coaching the NBA franchise, the New York Knicks. Pitino was coming into a job with a team who was on NCAA probation. But Pitino quickly turned the Kentucky program around and had a solid coaching career with them from 1989-1997. Pitino never had a losing record and went 219-50 with 1 National Championship in 1996, 4 Final Four appearances, and 5 SEC Championships. Pitino left in 1997 to coach the Boston Celtics. Tubby Smith who was coming from coaching at Georgia became the next Kentucky head coach. Smith had a lot of success in his career and won the National Championship his first year there in 1998. Smith coached from 1997-2007 and had a 263-83 record, 5 SEC Championships, and was the Naismith and AP Coach of the Year in 2003. Due to pressure from the fans and Kentucky community, Smith resigned as head coach and went on to coach at the University of Minnesota. The next Kentucky head coach was BIll Gillispie who only coached from 2007-2009. Gillispie had a mediocre record with Kentucky going 40-27 but was let go in 2009. The next hire would be current head coach John Calipari.

John Calipari began coaching the Kentucky Wildcats in 2009 after coming from coaching at the University of Memphis. Calipari had instant success with the Wildcats and which continues to this day as he transformed the program into one of the most elite in the country once again. Calipari is currently 217-47 at Kentucky and has coached some of the best players to come through the program. Calipari has won 1 National Championship in 2012 and has won the Naismith Coach of the Year and AP Coach of the Year in 2015. He’s taken Kentucky to the Final Four 4 times and won the SEC Championship 4 times. He has yet to have a losing season and Kentucky hasn’t finished outside the top two of the SEC East since Calipari has taken over the program. The Wildcat program looks like it’s in good hands with Calipari as he has taken them far in the tournament each year and continues to get some of the best young prospects in the country.

Kentucky basketball continually attracts the best basketball players in the country to its program every year and these players eventually go down as some of the best in program history and may go on to be stars in the NBA. Kentucky has had 5 National Players of the Year that came through the program: Forest Sale (1933), Leroy Edwards (1935), Jack Givens (1978), John Wall (2010), and Anthony Davis (2012). But the list of Kentucky greats does not stop there, some other great players that have played for the Wildcats include: Pat Riley, Dan Issel, Alex Groza, Louie Dampier, Kenny Walker, Rajon Rondo, DeMarcus Cousins, Tayshaun Prince, Nerlens Noel, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Eric Bledsoe, Karl-Anthony Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein, Julius Randle, and numerous others. This elite group of Wildcat players will continue to grow as the Kentucky basketball program grows more prestigious by the year.

Although Kentucky didn’t have the the amount of success they hoped for at the end of the 2015-2016 season, it’s hard to imagine they won’t be one of the top programs in the 2016-2017 because of how prestigious the program is and the constant high level talent that is coming through the program. Coach Calipari consistently produces good teams and this year’s recruiting class is said to possibly be the best Kentucky has ever had. Only time can tell how the Kentucky Wildcats will turn out, but they definitely have their eyes on the prize and will do everything they can to win the National Championship.
