It features an introduction and several articles by Larry Vaught, a Kentucky sports institution and six-time recipient of Kentucky’s National Sportswriter of the Year title.

This celebratory book takes readers from the season’s opening tip in November, through the exciting regular season and SEC Tournament, and on to the final seconds in New Orleans.

Also included are features on the team’s key figures, including head coach John Calipari, Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, Marquis Teague, Darius Miller and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
