Bernard King's 1st game against Kentucky was an 88-82 loss. Ky was aided by the fact that King fouled out with 7:17 to play after scoring 19 points. Kentucky fans taunted King and oranges, coins and ice were thrown as the Vols left the court. When a lighted cigarette was tossed in King’s hair, he tried to go into the stands. Assistant coach Stu Aberdeen stopped him, after which police roughly handled King while getting him off the court. He never forgot it and Kentucky never beat him again.
