Arkansas and Kentucky played a thrilling overtime ballgame on Tuesday night.
The only thing missing was the late Jim Valvano.
In a scene reminiscent of Lorenzo Charles putback for North Carolina State to win the 1983 national championship, Razorbacks guard Michael Qualls’ crept in behind Kentucky defenders for a put-back dunk with 0.2 seconds remaining gave his team the improbable victory.
Crashing the boards in that type of situation is the best time to crash the boards. They forget about you. I just saw an opportunity and took it.
Qualls finished the night with 18 points on 5-of-14 shooting.
