From The Racer InsiderRainey, a 6-4 forward, played for the Racers from 1993-97. A three-time All-OVC selection, he is eighth on the career scoring list with 1,888 points. He averaged 16.7 points during his career, 21.7 points as a senior. He is second in career steals with 176. He is one of just five Racers to win four OVC championships. Mark Gottfried said of Rainey, ““Vincent’s great attribute was his competitive nature. He loved to play the game and he played it with a great passion. Vincent was always in the gym, always sweating, always working. He just had a passion, a drive, a desire to be as good as he could be. And I don’t say that lightly. He really was that kind of a person and a player.” Rainey explained his drive and passion to Steve Parker in 1997, “It started when I was little,” he said. “No matter what I did my brother was always better than me. He not only beat me, he rubbed it in my face. It finally got to the point where I wasn't going to let him beat me, whether it was cutting the grass or washing dishes.” Rainey helped lead the Racers to four regular season titles and two OVC tournament championships.
