The race to 2000 wins is over and Kentucky is your victor. While Kansas and North Carolina will soon cross that threshold, no one can take Kentucky’s place in history as being the first team to break the 2000 barrier. As a fan, I’m awfully proud of the way this team secured these last few wins, helping the program over that mythical line. The highlight of win number 2000 was a behind the back move from John Wall that led to one of the more crowd-celebrated layups in years — especially for a place like Rupp Arena.
If John Wall stays awhile — Yeah, right — who knows, Kentucky might get to 4000 a little quicker than it took them to get their current win total. He certainly looks like he’s got a future in basketball.
