The 80-54 win gave Kentucky its 16th SEC tourney title and helped solidify the the Cats’ return to college basketball glory after a two-year post-season ban. Ninety minutes after the game, the team watched the NCAA Tournament bracket announcement on television from an O’Charley’s Restaurant in Birmingham, Ala. For winning 11 of its last 12 games, the Cats and their 26-6 record were awarded a No. 2 seed in the East Regional. Their season ended in the East Regional finals against Duke in what is considered by many analysts the greatest college basketball game ever played. Christian Laettner’s buzzer-beater deprived Kentucky of an upset and a trip to the Final Four. Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
