    Dale Ellis was pretty much a post up/power forward in college. UT's long range shooter was Michael Brooks. Man I wish we had the 3 pt line back then

    Re: Dwayne Schintzius dead at age 43

    Getting off subject here, but this is fun....

    Another fond SEC memory that I had from that era was when I got to witness in person LSU Freshman Chris Jackson drop 'half a hundred' on the Gators in a shootout.

    I believe his 53 point performance remains an O'Dome record nearly 25 years later.

    That kid could shoot.

    And did.

    Often.

    Especially given the announcer.

    Too bad Joe Dean wasn't announcing that game. He would have worn out "They call that Straaaang music from Knoxville, Tennessee."
    Jackson was one of the best SEC players I have ever seen. Just a remarkable player.
    Marty did UK Network TV games for a couple of seasons in the late 80's. One of those years was 1989,the only losing season UK has had in about 80 years. I blame Marty for that.

    In that clip Tennessee did very little guarding of him. They were giving him 3 feet on most of those shots. More than enough for Jackson.

    Marty was also on the radio mic for the 92 Duke game. Just sayin.

    Really. I didn't know that. I assume it was part of the NCAA radio network.

    Yep. If you listened real close on the UPS commercials you could hear his voice.

    He used to do one of the semi final games on Saturday at the Final 4 also.

    He was a pretty good basketball announcer, IMO.

    It was obvious that Marty loved doing NCAA basketball games. In fact, he has mentioned publically that he very much would have loved to become the UK play-by-play announcer after the death of Cawood Ledford.

    Apparently, when Jim Host selected Ralph Hacker as the on-air replacement, Marty cried conspiracy and has not had much nice to say about Hacker ever since.

    I don't think Marty's personality would have gone over with UK and its fans. He's way too critical and over the top. I think that was one reason he didn't stay on longer as UK's TV voice.

    In Marty's defense, Hacker was pretty awful.
