First Kentucky-Arkansas SEC game, 1992

University of Kentucky forward Gimel Martinez puts up a shot over Arkansas center Oliver Miller during the Razorbacks 105-88 win over the Cats, Jan. 25, 1992 at Rupp Arena. The long-awaited showdown between the two top-ten teams was the first meeting in league play since Arkansas joined the Southeastern conference. A record Rupp Arena crowd of 24,324 and what Arkansas Coach Nolan Richardson called "the atmosphere of the Final Four" had no discernible impact on the senior-dominated Razorbacks, who held UK star Jamal Mashburn to a season-low four points, snapping a string of 19 double-figure games.

University of Kentucky forward Gimel Martinez put up a shot over Arkansas center Oliver Miller during the Razorbacks’ 105-88 win over the Cats on Jan. 25, 1992, at Rupp Arena. The long-awaited showdown between the two top-10 teams was the first meeting in league play since Arkansas joined the Southeastern conference. A record Rupp Arena crowd of 24,324 and what Arkansas Coach Nolan Richardson called “the atmosphere of the Final Four” had no discernible impact on the senior-dominated Razorbacks, who held UK star Jamal Mashburn to a season-low four points, snapping a string of 19 double-figure games. UK would finish league play as SEC East and SEC Tournament champions. Click here to see an image from our archives of the Cats celebrating their 16th conference tourney title.
