In todays world, must one

But even in losing, these Gators, the happy-go-lucky i 96-

Florida ran into a red hot Wildcat five that played what
was perhaps their outstanding ball game of the year. Hitting
close to 48 per cent of its shots from the field, Kentucky opened
with a blazing it of 13, most of them from more than 20 feet
from the basket;

defense paced by little Dick Parsons was the difference.
