Basketball in Kentucky—Great Balls of Fire

The ambitious goal is to travel back to the first games played in Louisville's YMCA gym in 1895 and move through more than a century of people and places to capture the essence of the game that holds a special place in the hearts and minds of nearly every Kentuckian. Bob Edwards of NPR's Morning Edition narrates. A KET production.
