Basketball greats remembered
From the Rafters of Rupp—The Book: Legends of Kentucky Basketball ($34.95, Acclaim Press) contains firsthand accounts from 20 of the 44 players, coaches and broadcasters who have been immortalized high above Cawood’s Court for their contributions to Kentucky basketball.
Written by Kentucky legend Kyle Macy and sports columnist John Huang, From the Rafters of Rupp has something for every member of the Big Blue Nation, from the oldest diehard to the newest “true blue” fan. Its 208 pages are packed with vintage photographs, statistics and interviews with the likes of undefeated 1954 National Champion Cliff Hagan, all-time leading scorer Dan Issel, Kenny “Sky” Walker and Unforgettable Richie Farmer.
Macy, who lived and still breathes Kentucky basketball, walks you through the history of this storied program with his own personal accounts of many members of this exclusive club.
