Improbable Moments Keep Hog Basketball Entertaining

Razorbacks have played 27 one-possession or OT games the past three seasons

By Bart Pohlman

Somehow, someway.

That might be the best way to describe Arkansas’ 71-70 win at Vanderbilt that saw junior guard Daryl Macon sink three clutch free throws with 1.6 seconds left to give the Razorbacks the improbable win.

Arkansas, down 15 with 6:02 to play and down six inside the final minute, used a 7-0 run in the final 49 seconds to complete the comeback.

With the win over the ‘Dores, Arkansas improved to 16-4 overall (5-3 SEC), including a 3-2 record in true road games.

More than that, however, Arkansas may have solidified itself as the craziest thrill ride in college hoops. And really, it’s been that way for the past couple of seasons. You literally never know what’s going to happen when you turn on a Hog basketball game.

Think about all the moments over the past three seasons:

There was the Michael Qualls buzzer-beating put-back dunk to beat Kentucky in overtime in 2014.

There was Qualls’ 3-pointer to win at Vanderbilt in 2014.

There was the overtime win at Kentucky in 2014.

There was Bobby Portis’ buzzer-beating tip in to beat Alabama in overtime in 2015.

There was the win over No. 5 Texas A&M at home in 2016.

And now there’s this win at Vanderbilt in 2017.

That list doesn’t including a number of other one-possession wins for Arkansas over the past three seasons.

In fact, Arkansas has played in 27 games decided by one possession or in overtime over the past three seasons—almost a full season’s worth of games. The Hogs have a 15-12 record in those games, and have won six in a row dating back to last season.

You never know what you’re going to get with Arkansas basketball, but more often than not, it’s really exciting.
