Jamal Mashburn, SEC Tournament MVP, 1992

Posted on March 10, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

University of Kentucky’s Jamal Mashburn celebrated winning the Southeastern Conference Tournament title game on March 15, 1992, in Birmingham, Ala. Mashburn was named tournament MVP as UK stopped Alabama’s three-year championship run. Mashburn scored 10 of his game-high 28 points during a 30-6 second-half run by the Cats. Mashburn made 12 of 14 shots against Alabama and 26 of 31 in three tournament games (83.8 percent). His stay in Birmingham included four-of-five three-point shooting and 30 rebounds. Afterward, he thought of UK’s four seniors, Richie Farmer, Deron Feldhaus, Sean Woods and John Pelphrey. “I told them, ‘This is the only thing I can give you,'” Mashburn said. “‘I can’t give you any present.’ I can give them an SEC championship.” Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
