MEMORABLE GAME NO. 10

MEMORABLE GAME NO. 10 No. 9 ARKANSAS 94, No. 5 KENTUCKY 92 Jan. 29, 1995, at Fayetteville

Kentucky’s second-ever trip to Fayetteville was a highly-anticipated event. CBS moved the game to Super Bowl Sunday to ensure a large audience for the nationally televised event.

The Wildcats were 13-2, including 7-0 in the Southeastern Conference. Arkansas, the preseason No. 1 choice and defending national champion, had looked vulnerable at times during the season and was 15-4 with a 4-3 SEC mark.

By halftime it was obvious another special event was taking place, just as every Arkansas-Kentucky game had been. The Wildcats led by one when Reggie Garrett stunned the visitors with a halfcourt buzzer shot to give UA a 49-47 halftime lead.

UA was tied or led the entire second half until Walter McCarty’s short jumper gave Kentucky an 82-80 lead with 5:19 left. From that point on, neither team led by more than four, and there were three ties and three lead changes.

The teams traded salvos until Clint McDaniel made just one free throw with 51 seconds remaining. When McCarty scored on a putback with 24 seconds to go, UK led by one.

Scotty Thurman, UA’s greatest last-second shot maker ever, made sure the crowd went home happy. He drove past UK defenders, pulled up and hit an 18-footer with eight seconds to go to put the Razorbacks in front for good. McDaniel made a baseline steal in the final second and hit a free throw for the final two-point margin.

Thurman and Corliss Williamson combined for 50 points as the Hogs won their fourth straight regular season game over the Wildcats.
