Kentucky first to reach 2000 wins!

Drexel v Kentucky

The Kentucky Wildcats have become the first NCAA Division I program to reach the 2000 win mark with a dominating win Monday night against Drexel. It was a great night for Kentucky Basketball and a great telecast by ESPNU to highlight one of college basketball's most storied programs. Former UK great Jamal Mashburn offered color commentary and the sideline reporter did interviews with former coach Joe B. Hall, former players Kyle Macy and Kenny "Sky" Walker. They also had clips from top moments in Kentucky Basketball history.

The fact that Kentucky got to 2,000 first is not really a huge accomplishment to me. But it is a point that Kentucky is one of the greatest college basketball programs in the history of the NCAA. They have had up years and down but for the most part has been consistently one of the best. Last night was a true celebration of the Kentucky Wildcats, one that made me proud to be a UK fan.
