At one time, junior colleges were as much a part of the major college basketball scene as Dick Vitale.

Forget the ending of what many call the greatest college basketball game ever played for a minute. Focus on nearly eight minutes earler when Kentucky had stunnded the hoops world as Dale Brown swished a three-pointer from the right side that put the Wildcats in front of mighty Duke 89-87.
