LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Big Blue Gulf got wider for Arkansas.
Kentucky keeps beating the Razorbacks, especially in Rupp Arena.
The Wildcats stretched Arkansas’ losing streak at Rupp Arena to seven games and 14 years by rallying to beat Arkansas 63-58 Saturday before a sellout crowd of 24, 371.
It was Kentucky’s eighth consecutive victory in the series going back to the 2001 SEC Tournament semifinals in Nashville, Tenn.
Arkansas (18-8, 7-5 SEC ) hasn’t beaten Kentucky (15-10, 9-3 ) since 2001 in Fayetteville and hasn’t won at Rupp Arena since 1994, when the Razorbacks won the NCAA championship.
“As a senior class, we never beat them, and that’s very, very disappointing,” Arkansas center Steven Hill said. “But you’ve got to give them a lot of credit.” [read more]
