LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A sculpture honoring former Kentucky men's basketball coach Joe B. Hall was dedicated outside the new Wildcat Coal Lodge Tuesday morning.

The university says the bronze sculpture was produced over a period of eight months, beginning as a clay sculpture, then was cast in bronze.

It was created by sculptor J. Brett Grill of Columbia, Mo., using photographs of Hall taken from 1972 to 1985, the period of time when he coached the Wildcats to an overall record of 297-100 and the 1978 NCAA championship.

The school says the sculpture is intended to honor Hall and his contributions toward creating Wildcat Lodge.
