There is no richer tradition in college sports than University of Kentucky basketball. Tales from the Kentucky Locker Room recounts the school’s glorious roundball history through timeless stories from the players and coaches who shaped it. Some of the stories will leave the reader howling with laughter, others will inspire tears, but all will enable the reader to experience a feeling of closeness to the unique phenomenon that is Kentucky basketball. Former University of Kentucky play-by-play telecaster Denny Trease highlights the hilarious anecdotes and poignant tales told and retold during more than 70 years of Wildcat mania. From the Adolph Rupp era through the new millennium, there has been an endless parade of legendary characters associated with the Big Blue basketball machine, including all-time leading scorer Dan Issel, Kenny Walker, C. M. Newton, and many more. Their remarkable on-court performances, zany antics, and sometimes-subtle one-liners make Tales from the Kentucky Locker Room a must-read for any Wildcat fan.
