MEMORABLE GAME NO. 7 No. 3 ARKANSAS 103, TEXAS 96 Feb. 4, 1990, at Austin, Texas

Arkansas already had a two-game lead over Texas in the Southwest Conference when the Razorbacks invaded Austin for a nationally televised game.

The Hogs owned a four-game winning streak over the Longhorns, and it was a must-win situation for Texas. The Razorbacks led for most of the first half but Texas gained a five-point advantage midway through the second half. It was 77-72 ‘Horns when Todd Day fouled out for Arkansas 3:31 from the end.

Texas still led, 86-83, and had Travis Mays at the free throw line with 12 seconds left, but Mays missed the free throw and Lee Mayberry stunned the Texas crowd of more than 16,000 with a long three-pointer three seconds from the buzzer to send the game into overtime.

Arkansas made sure Texas never recovered. A three-pointer by Ernie Murry got the Hogs started and Mayberry’s jumper at 3:20 put the Hogs in front to stay. Mayberry and Lenzie Howell each scored 23 points to offset 24 by Joey Wright, 23 by Mays and 22 by Lance Blanks. The victory gave Arkansas a three-game lead it never surrendered on its way to the SWC title.
