Kentucky has one of the most legendary histories in college basketball, with eight national championships and 2,256 wins achieved since the first season in 1903.
Some of the members of one of those national championship teams is in Lexington this weekend to celebrate the 40th anniversary of its title run, and they were greeted back to the Kentucky campus by none other than John Calipari and the current Wildcats.
