A brand new coach, a devastating injury, and a heartbreaking death. The 1998 Kentucky basketball team is not only one of the most beloved teams in program history, but one of the most polarizing teams in modern sports. Head coach Tubby Smith and the Cats finished the season 35-4 while facing adversity at every turn. Still, the team was able to finish the year off with the school’s seventh national championship — capping off one of the most unsuspected title seasons in the last two decades.

The documentary was created by Cameron Mills, a senior guard on the team. It is called “Out Of The Blue” and is the second documentary of a Kentucky title team by Mills (1996). The documentary can be rented or purchased at

We caught up with Cameron about what went into making “Out Of The Blue” and find out what was his favorite moment from that special season.
