A piece of UK basketball history you may not know...

Did you know that 149 Kentucky basketball players have served in the US military? Carlos Toomer, a member of the Kentucky basketball team from 1990-1992, is the most recent player to serve. Of those 149 players, six died while in the line of duty. Tonight, we not only honor our basketball players, but all troops (past and present) who have served and are serving to keep this country free.

From the KSTV family, we want to thank all members of our armed forces for their service to our country.
