Milestone belongs to Cats past and present

The journey began on Feb. 18, 1903. Win number one for the Kentucky Wildcats basketball program came by one, 11-10, over the always formidable Lexington YMCA. On Monday night, the fascinating journey that is Kentucky basketball, reached 2,000 wins before any other men's hoops program with an 88-44 victory over Drexel. What a trek UK2K has been. A string of coaching luminaries made it possible for Kentucky to reach 2,000 first, and the journey to 2K has featured moments around which generations of Kentuckians have spaced their lives.
