Pelphrey hopes to Instill “Kentucky” Spirit in Hogs

John Pelphrey’s Senior season at Kentucky and his upcoming season at Arkansas have many parallels. Both Arkansas and Kentucky, at the time, were programs trying to recapture past glory. Although, the Hogs don’t have a Jamal Mashburn on this squad they have the potential to match Kentucky’s run to one of the most memorable finishes in NCAA tournament history. With Kentucky coming off probation, Pelphrey and the Wildcats made it to the Elite Eight in 1992 before losing to Duke on Christian Laettner’s famous buzzer-beater.
