ABOUT THE GAME

CATS RETURN TO RUPP FOR THREE-GAME HOMESTAND

Kentucky returns to Rupp Arena for a three-game homestand, starting with Friday night’s game

against Liberty. The Wildcats finished third at the Guardian’s Classic in Kansas City, claiming an 80-

66 win over West Virginia in the consolation game.

Patrick Sparks was outstanding for UK against West Virginia, tallying a season-best 25 points on 8-

of-13 shooting to earn all-tournamet honors. He was 7-of-11 from three-point range, tying his career

best for three-pointers made. Rajon Rondo added his second double-double of the year with 15 points

and 10 boards.

Following Liberty, UK hosts Tubby Smith’s alma mater, High Point, Dec. 29, before welcoming

defending national champion North Carolina to Rupp Arena on Saturday, Dec. 3, for a nationally-televised

(CBS) matchup between college basketball’s two all-time winningest programs.

QUICK NOTES

• Over the last four seasons, UK is second nationally in wins (90) and winning percentage (.849),

trailing only Illinois (91 wins/.850).

• Kentucky has won nine-straight home games.

• Patrick Sparks was named to the Guardian’s Classic All-Tournament team after recording 25 points

(on 8-of-13 shooting) and six assists vs. West Virginia. His seven made threes tied his career best.

• Rajon Rondo had a career-best 19 rebounds against Iowa. It was the most rebounds by a UK player

since Feb. 9, 1994 (Jared Pricket - 20 rebounds) and the most-ever by a UK guard.

• Kentucky is ranked seventh in the latest Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN Coaches’ polls. The

Cats finished last year ranked seventh in the AP poll and fifth in the coaches’ poll.

• The Wildcats have been ranked in the AP top 10 for 38-straight polls, the longest current streak in

the nation.

• In Tubby Smith’s nine years, UK is 96-1 (.990) when shooting 50 percent or better.

• UK has held 69 of its last 70 opponents, including 27 straight, below 50 percent shooting. South

SCOUTING LIBERTY

Liberty comes to Rupp Arena with a 1-1 record

after a season-opening loss at Virginia and a home

win over Cincinnati Christian University

Monday.

Liberty returns just one starter and five letterwinners

from last year's squad, while losing 63.0

percent of its offense (1,199 out of 1,902 points)

and 63.3 percent of its rebounds (675 out of

1,066 rebounds). Leading the way for the Flames

is guard Larry Blair, who earned first-team All-Big

South honors as a sophomore in 2005.

SERIES HISTORY

• This is the first meeting between Kentucky

and Liberty.

• The Wildcats are 5-0 all-time against teams

from the Big South, including a 2-0 record

against upcoming opponent High Point. UK also

owns perfect records vs. Big South schools UNC

Asheville (2-0) and Winthrop (1-0).

KENTUCKY CONNECTION

• Liberty freshman guard Justin Holland played

high school basketball with UK sophomore

Randolph Morris at Atlanta’s Landmark

Christian. Both were named all-state in 2004

(Morris - first team, Holland - second team).

SWITCHING STARTERS

Kentucky has played just four games this season

and has done so with three different starting lineups,

a rare occurrence for Tubby Smith.

In the two previous seasons, Smith used only

three different starting lineups total (excluding

senior day lineups).

TRIO OF KENTUCKIANS IN LINEUP

Tubby Smith started three Kentucky natives

against West Virginia, the first time in nine seasons

a trio of Kentuckians have started for UK.

Ravi Moss (Hopkinsville), Patrick Sparks (Central

City) and Rajon Rondo (Louisville) were the first

trio of Kentucky natives to start together for the

Cats since Scott Padgett (Louisville), Anthony

Epps (Lebanon) and Derek Anderson (Louisville)

did so against Mississippi State on Jan. 7, 1997.

SEEING SPARKS

Patrick Sparks hadn’t caused much of a commotion

this season - at least not until Tuesday’s win

over West Virginia.

Sparks was on fire, canning seven three-pointers

(tying his career-high for threes made) en route to

a 25-point performance. Overall, the senior was

8-of-13 from the field and added six assists in the

victory.

He earned all-tournament team honors for the

Kansas City games in the Guardian’s Classic.

ROCKIN’ RONDO

All-America candidate Rajon Rondo currently

leads UK in scoring (14.0 ppg), rebounding (12.0

ppg), assists (5.0 apg) and steals (2.8 spg).

Rondo grabbed 19 rebounds against Iowa, the

most by a Wildcat in 12 seasons and the most ever

by a UK guard. He followed with his second

career double-double against West Virginia with

15 points and 10 rebounds.

Setting new highs has become commonplace

this season for the Louisville sophomore. He

recorded his first career double-double (17 points

and 12 rebounds to go with six assists and six

steals) in the season opener against South Dakota

State, and followed that with a career-high 19

points in the win over Lipscomb.

RONDO ON WATCH LISTS

Kentucky guard Rajon Rondo has been named

one of the top 50 candidates for both the 2005-

06 Wooden Award All-America team, the 2006

John Wooden Award and the Naismith Trophy.

The Wooden list, which was voted on by a

national panel, includes returning players only. In

January, the Midseason Top 30 will be

announced.

In January, the Naismith Trophy Board of

Selectors will narrow its pre-season list to the Top

30 players in the nation.

CATS IN THE RANKINGS

Kentucky is ranked seventh in both the latest

Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today Coaches’

polls.

The Cats were ranked seventh in the final

Associated Press poll and fifth in the final USA

Today/ESPN Coaches poll last season.

The Cats were ranked in the top 10 in both

polls for 14-consecutive weeks last season, including

a top ranking of third in both polls twice in

February.

POLL CATS

Kentucky has appeared in 83-consecutive AP

polls, the second-longest current streak in the

nation. The last time UK was not ranked by the

AP was Feb. 6, 2001.

CELEBRATING RUPP ARENA

announced at Big Blue Madness in October.

Each home game this season will feature a different

“Top Rupp Moment” on both the ticket

BIG BLUE MANIA BIG BLUE MANIA

KEIGHTLEY BEGINS 45TH SEASON AT UK

Incredible. Bill Keightley is in his 45th season

as equipment manager of the UK basketball team.

The beloved “Mr. Wildcat” began assisting in the

equipment room during the 1961-62 season and

since then, UK has played 1,368 games, owning a

1,054-314 (.771) record.

Kentucky, which has fielded 103 teams, has

played 2,492 games, meaning Keightley has

played a role in 54.9% of the games.

The Lawrenceburg, Ky., native, who has a jersey

retired in the rafters of Rupp Arena, has

worked under five different head coaches at UK -

- Rupp, Hall, Sutton, Pitino and Smith. The current

cats have a modern nickname for the 78-

year-old Keightley -- “Smooth.”

“SUPER FAN” BEGINS 53RD SEASON

Big Blue fan Bob Wiggins, 77, continues his

amazing streak of following the basketball Cats.

The 2005-06 season is his 53rd watching

Kentucky play in person and through his own

record-keeping, he has attended 1,324 UK games.

His home-court streak spans 44 years and 632

games. During that period, which dates back to

1960-61, UK has a home record of 563-69

(.891).

TUBBY SMITH FILE

team Kentucky extended its streak that dates back

to the 1990-91 season.

CHAMPIONSHIP CHARM

In his eight previous years in the Bluegrass,

Tubby Smith has claimed some type of conference

crown - an SEC overall and/or Eastern Division

title or SEC Tournament title - each year, including

the SEC regular season and Eastern Division

titles this season.

Smith has coached the Wildcats to five SEC

regular-season titles, five SEC Tournament

Championships and seven Eastern Division

crowns.

THE TUBBY SMITH FOUNDATION

In 1997, Tubby Smith started a foundation to

assist underprivileged children. He has since conducted

annual auctions, golf tournaments and

other events while also accepting donations from

companies and corporations throughout the

Bluegrass. Now in its eighth year, the Foundation

has raised over $2.8 million.

In January 2003, the foundation teamed with

Dell computers, along with several area businesses,

to develop “Tubby’s Clubhouses.” The clubhouses

hold 20 refurbished Dell computers at five

different community centers in Lexington to

serve at-risk middle school students through a 40-

hour after school program. Students are given

computer training in an effort to help them succeed

with increased life skills.
