Earl Adkins and his teammates from the University of Kentucky's 1958 NCAA championship basketball team have waited a long time for their championship rings -- 50 years to be exact.
Adkins, who lives in Shelbyville, said when the team won the title the players received only wristwatches. Adkins' watch has long since stopped working.
And now that the championship ring is on his hand, Adkins said he is glad to have a visible symbol of the team's accomplishment and to no longer have to explain to folks why he doesn't have a ring.
