A highly talented basketball team, top ranked all season long, heavily favored to win a national title...sound familiar?  It should.  In this special edition of Saving Stories we recall Kentucky's triumphant march to the title in 1978.  Who better to talk about that historic run than Mr. Wildcat?  Bill Keightley served as the team's equipment manager until his death in 2008.

Special thanks to UK Athletics, interviewer Jeff Suchanek, Dr. Doug Boyd, the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History, and UK Libraries.
