LITTLE ROCK — The top two teams in the SEC clash in Lexington this weekend!
No. 1 Kentucky (28-0, 15-0) hosts No. 18 Arkansas (23-5, 12-3) at Rupp Arena Saturday at 3 p.m. on CBS.
The rivalry ignited when Nolan Richardson and the Hogs joined the SEC in 1992. The Razorbacks and Rick Pitino's 'Cats played a number of epic games during the early and mid '90s often with conference and national championships at stake for both squads. In 1997-1998, Tubby Smith took over for Pitino, but the highly-contested series continued.
Today, Mike Anderson's Hogs have won their last three meetings against the Wildcats, which includes a victory last season at Rupp.
Here's a look (below) at one of the great games between these two titans of the hardwood.
Freshmen Corliss Williamson and Scotty Thurman introduced themselves to Rick Pitino and his Kentucky Wildcats in February 1993. This was the ONLY match-up between the Hogs and 'Cats at Barnhill Arena in SEC play, because the building would be closed for the unveiling of Bud Walton Arena in the 1993-1994 season.
The young Razorbacks finished 1992-1993 as a Sweet Sixteen team, losing to eventual champion North Carolina. But the Hogs defeated Pitino's Wildcats on this day, 101-94.
