... citing a home-court advantage as the cause of the lopsided record. To this day
the series is still going, one game played in each state, and each contest is sold
out and played before a totally partisan audience. As it happens, in 1955, the
same year the series went to two games, Kentucky also started naming black
players to the squad. In 1956, my senior year, the series was being billed by
reporters as a battle between opposites — me and "King" Kelly Coleman, a
braggadocious ...

Featured Player Kelly Coleman (New York, '60) is still considered by some to be
the best high school player ever to come out of Kentucky, which means to those
people that he was the best high school player ever. The 6'3" guard certainly had
the props for such a claim, averaging 46.3 PPG as a high school senior. His fame
grew so large that he was nicknamed "King" Kelly Coleman (and he deserved it
more than that usurper "King" Rex Chapman). Originally intending to play his ...

Everyone wanted to see Kelly, the nation's best player, do his magic. The Wasps
fans came to the tournament in droves. They were especially proud of their team
and favorite son. One Wayland fan hired a plane in Lexington to drop leaflets that
nickname stuck. Bluegrass basketball fans were more than upset. The stage was
set for the Wayland Wasps and their high-school basketball King. The angry True

At the same time, a Kentucky schoolboy named "King" Kelly Coleman was
tearing up the state, averaging 46.8 points a game in his senior year at Wayland
High School. Adolph Rupp called Coleman the greatest high school player he
had ever seen. "He's a combination," said the Baron, "of Cliff Hagan and Frank
Ramsey." Wayland High School won so often and by such huge margins that
gamblers took to betting on how many points Coleman would score. One night,
the coach of ...

The All-Star series proved quite interesting, because Kentucky was led by King
Kelly Coleman, who had scored a staggering 4,263 points during his career at

crowd of 14,500 looking on at Butler Fieldhouse, Robertson volunteered to guard
the Kentucky legend. The result: Oscar scored thirty-four points, the King
seventeen, and Indiana ran away with a 92-78 victory. It was even more decisive
a week later in ...

Newman's journey—his odyssey, really—is quite an interesting one. This
Greenville (Kentucky) High School star was one of the top four players in a very
strong 1956 senior class, along with Wayland's “KingKelly Coleman, Central
City's Corky Withrow, and Berea's Don Mills. All were high on Adolph Rupp's
wish list. He did manage to land three of the four. Only Coleman said no to a UK
scholarship offer. Joining that trio was Jackie Moreland, a 6'7" lefty from Minden,
Louisiana, who ...
