Legendary Kentucky basketball coach Joe B. Hall was the guest of honor at a roast on Wednesday night.
LEXINGTON, Ky. - Former Kentucky basketball coach Joe B. Hall was honored with a roast on Wednesday night at the Red Mile clubhouse.
Several of coach Hall's former players, including Kyle Macy, Kenny "Sky" Walker, Jack "Goose" Givens, Jimmy Dan Conner and many others, were on hand to have a little fun at their old coach's expense.
Coach Hall said, "We just finished an election, and I feel like one of those candidates because there's going to be nothing but lies told about me tonight. And it usually takes me about three months to get over the depression from these roasts."
Macy, Hall's starting point guard on his 1978 national championship team, said that he has so much respect for what coach Hall did for him and so many others that he would take it easy on Hall during the roast.
The evening was also the 65th anniversary celebration of Lexington's WVLK radio station.
