As a student in the 60`s and into the 70s saw some great basketball games.I pretended to be a recruit and wore a suit to Pete Maravich`s first varsity game.Sitting courtside I got to see one of the greatest players ever held in check to about 21 points by a great Tennessee defense.Seem to recall Bill Justus in a game against Florida hitting a jumper to give the Vols the win in a game that had a final score something like 13-11 due to both teams holding the ball wih no 24 second clock.In that game Coach Mears called a time out on purpose to force a technical but gave Tennessee the opportunity to get the ball back on a jump ball, which the Vols did.The move by Mears was so brilliant that the NCAA had to change the rule the following season.Kentucky games were great against Rupp and the Wildcats.
