FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- John Pelphrey stormed onto the court with a foot stomp and a hand clap.The Arkansas coach then proceeded to dish out high fives to everyone he could find.Pelphrey had plenty of reasons for his emotional outburst after the Razorbacks fought off No. 22 Kentucky for a 77-76 overtime win on Wednesday night. The win was Pelphrey's first in four chances against his alma mater, and it snapped Arkansas' 10-game losing streak to the Wildcats.
• Brandon Knight scored a season-high 26 points for Kentucky, but that was outweighed by Arkansas' Rotnei Clarke (26) and Marshawn Powell (22), who combined for 48 of the Razorbacks' 77 points and 15 of their 28 field goals.
• With the loss, Kentucky fell to 1-6 in SEC road games. The Wildcats are 6-0 at home in conference play.
• The loss also snapped Kentucky's 10-game winning streak against Arkansas.
• Arkansas beat a ranked opponent at home for the first time since defeating No. 7 Texas on January 6, 2009.
