Even in the wake of its national title, Kentucky continued to be the target of former Indiana and Texas Tech coach Bob Knight.
The current ESPN analyst had a speaking engagement at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, IN, where he took aim at the Wildcats as part of a speech that encompassed his experiences and career.
Knight has drawn criticism for a perceived bias toward Kentucky, which he has refused to call by its name and even purposely left it off a list of the best teams in the country.
According to the Indianapolis Star, Knight continued Saturday by ripping the one-and-done rule, calling it a “disgrace” – a veiled shot at UK. Then, he talked directly about the Wildcats.
“Kentucky managed to get irritated over that because I mentioned them as the SEC team rather than Kentucky,” Knight said, according to the report. “Well, they might not have known that Kentucky was in the SEC. I thought that was always a possibility with them.”
