Bluegrass Kingdom: The Gospel of Kentucky Basketball

"Bluegrass Kingdom: The Gospel of Kentucky Basketball" delves into the fabled past of the program’s first coach and the inspired tradition he cultivated; the historical relevance and implications of the 1966 NCAA championship game against Texas Western College’s all-black starting five; the emergence of Joe B. Hall and his 1975 Wildcats team that upset the Indiana Hoosiers in the NCAA tournament that year; as well as other highs and lows of the program.

The hour-long presentation on truTV also includes interviews with, and first-hand accounts from, a variety of players, coaches, opponents and others associated with the Kentucky Wildcats’ program, such as former UK players Kenny “Sky” Walker and Derek Anderson, two-time All-American Cliff Hagan, and Willie Worsley, a member of Texas Western College’s 1966 championship team.

"Bluegrass Kingdom: The Gospel of Kentucky Basketball" is the second feature in a series of documentaries focused on collegiate basketball programs from Turner Sports. The division’s first feature — Duke 91 & 92: Back to Back — debuted last year in advance of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. (Source: truTV)
