Dale Barnstable, 1949-50 captain of the Kentucky Wildcats, lays up a shot good for two points in the Indiana Central game. Dale was the steadying influence on the Cats last year.
It looks as though he's even with the basket and he probably is. It's Bill Spivey tipping one in against Indiana Central.
Dale Barnstable -- Barney captained the young Wildcats in his senior year and was valuable in aiding the Cats compile their enviable record. He was fifth high scorer for the team this season getting 179 points on 71 field goals and 37 free throws. Perhaps his top game was the Cat-Candy game played at Alumni Gym when he tossed in 18 points.

Schedule for 1952-53

Brooklyn native (and former UK football player) Nick Englisis and his associates first approached Kentucky starters Ralph Beard, Alex Groza and Dale Barnstable in late 1948 and convinced the players to agree to $100 each to beat their upcoming opponent, St. Johns, by more than the point spread.

- Dale Barnstable, excerpted from Scandals of '51 by Charley Rosen, reprinted by Seven Stories Press, 1999, pg.
Barnstable would 'do whatever they told him' according to Englisis.
According to Englisis, the players tried to play over (rather than under) the 14-point point spread against Villanova in a first round game because as Groza told him: "The little guy (Beard) and Barnstable are worried about losing that one too.
By the fall of 1951, the ever growing scandal implicated Beard, Groza and Barnstable who had since gone on to make history by joining other UK players in forming the NBA's Indianapolis Olympians.
Detectives arrested the two outside the stadium after the games were over and Barnstable was awoken by police at 2 a.m. the same night at his home in Louisville (leaving his wife and twin 5-month old daughters).
Atty. William P. Sirignano, was in Louisville, questioning Barnstable.
Barnstable was a highly-regarded Louisville teacher and athletic coach.
"When Groza and Beard had responded and given me the facts I asked Groza to speak over the telephone to Louisville to Barnstable and encourage him to be frank and open.
"None present, I am sure, will forget that tense moment in the Chicago prosecutor's office when Groza said over the long-distance telephone to Barnstable, 'Barney, Ralph and I have told these men the truth, and I think you should do the same.
"Barnstable quickly, then, did tell Mr. Sirignano the truth, for he, like Groza and Beard, and the many players from New York, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky, were possessed of the stuff for rehabilitation and rebuilding worthwhile and useful lives.
Barnstable voluntarily accompanied a detective from Kentucky for arrest here.
Barnstable, Groza and Beard await their fate
Beard and Barnstable testified that players received $10 to $20 from time to time for playing good games.
Before the ruling and as part of Streit's discovery process, the judge had ordered the Kentucky State Welfare Commission to investigate Alex Groza, Ralph Beard and Dale Barnstable and to provide a "complete social study on each of the players and for an account of their social situations along with their academic records.
Beard and Barnstable, along late in Rupp's career, began to come back and visit him.
