     On Saturday members of the 1978 UK Men's Basketball National Championship team came together to honor their coach, Joe B. Hall.

     Hall was inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame late last year, and on Saturday a ceremony was held for the coach at Spindletop Hall.

    Lee and Givens say it was was how Hall communicated and motivated each player differently that made him such a great coach.

    Givens added that current coach John Calipari coaches a similar 'no nonsense' way, which he thinks is a big reason why UK has been successful in recent years.
