Hi WHAS11 viewers,

Nothing like a little breaking sports news to make an otherwise normal basketball tournament a little more exciting. 

By now you’ve heard that former Wildcat and current Arkansas head coach, John Pelphrey has allegedly violated NCAA rules by taking a picture with a pair of future Arkansas recruits.  It seems minor but in the world of NCAA rules nothing is minor.  Timing, as they say is everything considering Pelphrey and his Hogs are taking on Bruce Pearl and the Tennessee Volunteers.  Pearl is another coach familiar with NCAA violations; he’s under the microscope right now as well.  So in between trying to get Cat fans ready for Friday’s game with Ole Miss, we’ve been trying to get more information about Pelphrey.  There are tons of Cat fans here in Atlanta as you’ve seen from our pictures.  Keep checking in and we’ll keep you posted on all the happenings here in Atlanta.
