Cameron Mills came to the Wildcats program with a great family history at Kentucky. His father, Terry Mills, played for the Wildcats from 1968-1971. Cameron's career with the Kentucky basketball program began with the 1994-95 season. Mills wore the same uniform #21 that his father wore as a Wildcat. During Cameron's sophomore season, he came off the bench on one of the greatest teams ever assembled and helped that great 1995-96 Wildcats team bring home a National Championship. In Cameron's junior season with the Wildcats, his playing time and production increased, making him a vital part of that team that... Continue reading

During the mid 1990's, the Kentucky basketball program went through a trend where the team was wearing some of the most outlandish basketball shorts ever designed. Converse used the Kentucky basketball program as a platform to try out new design ideas and unusual styles. The 1993-93 Wildcats wore one of those crazy uniforms sets. The team's uniform shorts featured an unusual striping pattern that completely broke the mold in shorts design, especially at a program with the traditional history of Kentucky. The stripes swirled around the shorts from the front to the back and created a look like nothing else... Continue reading

One of the most memorable SEC Tournament wins for the Kentucky Wildcats occurred on March 10, 1984. The 1983-84 Wildcats found themselves in the SEC Championship game against the Auburn Tigers and their star player, future Hall of Famer, Charles Barkley. Free throws at the end of the previous contest by Dicky Beal pushed the Cats into the finals with a 48-46 win over Alabama. The game at Memorial Coliseum in Nashville had an intense tournament-like atmosphere and most of the 15,000 plus fans in attendance were Kentucky fans. The game was a nail biter throughout. The teams swapped the... Continue reading
