FIRST TO 2000
During Coach John Calipari's first year as the coach of the University of Kentucky Wildcats the basketball team had the opportunity to be the first team to ever reach 2000 wins. The second team in line to do so was the North Carolina Tarheels. This print depicts the 2009-2010 team that was led by John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Patrick Patterson and Eric Bledsoe. John Wall is shown shooting a free throw as only a few seconds remain on the scoreboard at Rupp Arena. Kentucky won this top ten matchup over Carolina by a score of 68-66 on December 5th, 2009. This win started fueling all the renewed success of the gold standard of college basketball! Kentucky would actually attain it's 2000th win against Drexel later in the month but this image captures the first two teams to attain that goal. Remember the moment the fun and excitement started again!
