Todd Meade of Bluegrass RV’s with former UK players Wayne Turner, Cameron Mills, Jeff Sheppard, Derek Anderson and Jared Prickett.
Nine players from the University of Kentucky 1998 National Championship Team will be at All Sports in the Fayette Mall Friday, April 13 from 4:30-6:30pm for a public signing.
Jeff Sheppard, Allen Edwards, Wayne Turner, Scott Padgett, Cameron Mills, Steve Masiello, Saul Smith, Michael Bradley and Ryan Hogan will all be on hand to meet and share stories with fans.
This year marks 20 years since the “Comeback Cats” defeated Utah 78-69 in San Antonio to claim UK’s 7th National Title. Team Captain Jeff Sheppard scored 16 points and was was named Most Outstanding Player.
It’s been tough getting this group together over the years due to many members on the team now coaching in college and or working in some capacity with NBA Teams (Allen Edwards head coach Wyoming, Scott Padgett head coach Samford, Steve Masiello head coach Manhattan, Wayne Turner assistant coach Louisville, Jamaal Magloire assistant coach Toronto Raptors, Nazr Mohammed front office Oklahoma City Thunder).
