Dunk At Buzzer Lifts Arkansas Past Kentucky – VIDEO
A dunk by Michael Qualls, as time expired in overtime, helped lift the Arkansas Razorbacks to a 87-85 win over the 13th-ranked Kentucky Wildcats in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Tuesday night.
Trailing, 85-82, in the overtime period, Kentucky’s James Young nailed a three-pointer with 10.2 seconds remaining, which tied the game, 85-85.
Ky Madden then took a three-point attempt for Arkansas, with about three seconds remaining, a shot which was off the mark. That’s when Qualls, a 6-foot-6 sophomore, came flying in from the baseline, and put home the two-hand jam, giving the Razorbacks the exciting win.
The win improved Arkansas to 12-4, overall, and 1-2 in SEC play, while Kentucky fell to 12-4, overall, and 2-1 in league play.
