Billy Gillispie: UK's 2nd Choice, But 1st Class Winner

April 10th, 2007

Billy Gillispie must feel like he’s dreaming.

Just five years ago, he was stumbling through his first season as head coach at UTEP, on his way to a 6-24 record. Now, he’s preparing to sit in the same seat once occupied by Adolph Rupp, and lead a program that has “suffered” through back-to-back 22-win seasons. And he couldn’t be more excited.

“Was I the second choice?” Gillispie asked at his introductory news conference on April 6, in reference to UK’s public courtship of Billy Donovan. “If I was anywhere before seven and eight, I’d be happy.”

Donovan now has more rings than Lute Olson, Jim Boeheim, Tom Izzo, and even his mentor, Rick Pitino.

- Following Tubby Smith's lead, Randolph Morris bolted Lexington.. siging with uber-bad GM Isiah Thomas and the Knicks. Not a bad move by the Knicks, but better for Morris.. who turned not getting drafted into a 2 year 1.6 million dollar contract.
