Kentucky’s 1992 senior class would go down in Wildcat basketball lore as “The Unforgettables”. The class consisted of John Pelphrey, Sean Woods, Deron Feldhaus and Richie Farmer. They were the 4 sophomores who stuck around during the summer of ‘88 after UK hired a new athletic director, CM Newton, and a new head coach, Rick Pitino. Pitino’s first season ended with a 14-14 record but help was on the way. The addition of Jamal Mashburn during the ‘90-91 season had the Wildcats poised to make a tourney run in ‘92.

Kentucky won the SEC East and the SEC Tournament, earning a No. 2 seed in the East Region of the NCAA Tournament. After wins over Old Dominion, Iowa State and UMass, the Wildcats were one win away from the Final Four. Waiting for them was Mike Krzyzewski and the defending National Champion Duke Blue Devils. What happened next goes down as the greatest game ever played.

It became a game of “Can you top this?” Duke led by 5 at halftime but Kentucky’s press and 3 point shooting pushed the game into overtime. With Mashburn having fouled out and the clock winding down, Woods hit a running bank shot to give UK a 103-102 lead. The Wildcats were one defensive stop away from the Final Four.

It was a stop they didn’t get as Christian Laettner hit one of the most memorable shots in college basketball history as the buzzer sounded. To the Kentucky fan “The Shot” was inconsequential. “The Unforgettables” had restored the entire program back to blue blood status.
