I remember a somewhat-similar game between Kentucky and Cincinnati in '83 back in the Joe B. Hall days. Cincinnati played the four corners stall for the entire game. Kentucky won that game 24-11. It's hard to blame the Bearcats for trying something different, though-- they finished 3-25 that year, while the Wildcats went to the Final Four after that season (Sam Bowie was on that UK squad, along with Melvin Turpin, Kenny Walker, and Winston Bennett-- all eventual NBA players, while I doubt anyone here would recognize any of the UC players' names). Conventional basketball would have given UC zero chance.Joe B. Hall was MAD about it, though, as were the majority of fans there (who were Kentucky fans despite the fact that it was being played at Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati). Bearcats fans enjoyed seeing how mad the Kentucky folks got about the whole thing. I guess you'd call that a "moral victory" or something.Here's an article I dug up about that game (thank goodness for Google):http://www.enquirer.com/bearcats/1998...
