Rick Mount's 72/73 Kentucky Colonel's home uniform. Mount, a 6'4'' guard from Purdue played 5 years of professional basketball...all in the ABA. Mount was a high school legend in Indiana (Lebonon High School) and the first high school basketball player to make the cover of Sports Illustrated. Mount was a prolific scorer for Purdue, but never lived up to his reputation in professional basketball. Kentucky had a strong franchise for all 9 ABA years, but was 1 of 2 teams not granted an NBA franchise for the 76/77 year.
