Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - The minute you hear his name, you think basketball in Kentucky: Adolph Rupp.  

Controversial and admired, he died 34-years-ago after coaching 41 seasons in Lexington.
  
His funeral was shown around the state and so was a special that was produced about his life. It includes rare film of UK games and one of the last interview's Rupp gave before he died.     

We found that broadcast in the WHAS archives for this edition of Friday Flashback.
The special was produced by Denny Trease and WKYT in Lexington.
