Tony Delk, NCAA championship game, 1996

Posted on December 24, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by
Tony Delk, lying on the floor, is mobbed by teammates after he was fouled while hitting a 3-pointer during Kentucky's 76-67 win over Syracuse in the NCAA championship game, April 1, 1996 in East Rutherford, N.J. Leading the Cats to their sixth national title, Delk tied a championship-game record with seven 3-pointers in the game. At the behest of ex-Kentucky guard Cameron Mills, filmmaker Jason Epperson and WKYT-TV’s Dick Gabriel have combined to produce a documentary on Kentucky’s 1996 NCAA championship team. The film will debut on Lexington’s WKYT-TV at 5 p.m. Christmas Day. “They really believe they were the best team in the modern era of college basketball,” Gabriel said. Photo by Daqvid Perry | staff
