In the process, Louisville also dethroned the legendary Adolph Rupp and his University of Kentucky squad, the reigning barons of the state and a college basketball force in its own right.

These programs were the victim of the ongoing tug-of-war between party lines in the county concerning borrowing and redistricting.
