Corruption in Kentucky

1989 was not a kind year to Kentucky basketball. After finishing a miserable 13-19 -- the team's worst season since 1927 -- it was revealed that the Wildcats committed a number of NCAA violations. Assistant coach Dwayne Casey sent $1,000 to the family of freshman Chris Mills, and the program was found guilty of illegally assisting Eric Manuel on his college entrance exams. As a result, Kentucky was hit with a two-year postseason ban.
