Jamal Mashburn is UK's SEC Basketball Legend this year. He will be honored at this year's SEC Tournament being held in Nashville, Tenn.

The two-time All-America pick during his three years at Kentucky, Mashburn was a big key in putting UK back on the map with the best programs in college basketball. He was selected consensus first-team All-America in the 1993 season when he helped lead the Wildcats to the Final Four where he was named to the All-Final Four Team.

A three-time All-SEC selection, Mashburn finished his career with 1,843 points, fourth most in school history at the time. Mashburn was also voted the 1993 SEC Player of the Year, and was selected fourth overall in the 1993 NBA Draft by the Dallas Mavericks.

Each SEC Basketball Legend will be recognized at halftime of his institution's first game at the tournament.
