Bogans starts, wearing an ankle brace

3/29/2003

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kentucky guard Keith Bogans started the
Midwest Regional final against Marquette on Saturday, wearing a
protective brace on his sprained left ankle.

Bogans, who missed the second half of the semifinal
victory Thursday night over Wisconsin after injuring his ankle in a collision with the
Badgers' Kirk Penney, was unable to practice Friday.

But after hours of treatment, he took the floor at the
Metrodome.

Bogans, a 6-foot-5 senior, is Kentucky's leading scorer at 15.7
points a game, as well as the floor leader for the Wildcats.
