  • In the University of Kentucky’s illustrious basketball history, Kyle Macy inherits a prominent place – and spawned a generation of boys named Kyle in Kentucky.
  • Indiana’s Mr. Basketball in 1975 while playing for his father Bob at Peru High, the 6-3 point guard was a three-year starter for the Wildcats after spending his freshman season at Purdue.
  • Macy helped the Wildcats capture the 1978 national title, breaking a 20-year drought that likely felt like a century-long drought to Big Blue Nation.
  • When Macy’s collegiate career closed in 1980, he had a resume to rival any Wildcat: three All-American nods, an SEC Player of the Year award, and two SEC titles in addition to the 1978 national title. He left UK as the program’s all-time leader in assists and 12th on the Cats’ all-time scoring list.
  • A first-round draft pick of the Phoenix Suns in 1979, Macy played seven seasons in the NBA.
  • He was inducted into the University of Kentucky Athletics Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Wildcats retired his #4 jersey in 1997.
