Kentucky Wildcats History
The Kentucky Wildcats have one of the most passionate fan bases around and for good reason - they have the winningest program in college basketball history with the most wins (2,153 and counting at the start of the 2014-15 season) and the highest win percentage (76.2). The Wildcats have been a member of the Southeastern Conference since its formation in 1932. In addition to their wins, they also lead the NCAA in tournament appearances with 53, lead the NCAA in tournament wins with 116 and rank just second to UCLA in NCAA championships with eight.
Kentucky is also the only Division I team to win multiple NCAA and NIT championships. In their 53 tournament appearances, they have the most Sweet Sixteen appearances with 40, the most Elite Eight appearances with 35, the third most Final Fours with 16 (behind North Carolina and UCLA) and 12 NCAA championship game appearances (tied for most with UCLA). In addition, they're the only school to have five different coaches win NCAA championships (Rupp, Hall, Pitino, Smith and Calipari). Kentucky basketball tickets continue to be in high demand for each game at the Rupp Arena.
Adolph Rupp, one of the winningest coaches of all-time, started the winning tradition at Kentucky back in 1930. Rupp is still fifth all-time in most wins as a college basketball coach with a final record of 876-190, but has the best win percentage for a coach with over 420 wins (82.2 percent). John Calipari, the current head coach of Kentucky has brought Kentucky back into national prominence after more than a decade of subpar basketball. Calipari brought the Wildcats back to the promised land in 2012 with their first national championship since 1998.
