Ok, so there is like ten minutes to tip off and I am a wee bit nervous. I remember watching the semifinal game in 1996 from a hotel room in Indiana and jumping off my bed with excitement as UK beat UMass. Then again in 1997 as UK was laying it to Minnesota in the semifinal game even bringing in an injured Derek Anderson to shoot free throws as Clem Haskins racked up some technicals. Then again in 1998 as they silenced a very annoying Mark “Mad Dog” Madsen and his Stanford team. Now I sit here hoping for another trip to the final game…..c’mon Cats!!!
