No. 7 ARKANSAS 106, No. 23 LSU 92

March 3, 1992, at Fayetteville

lt was Arkansas’ first year as a member of the Southeastern Conference. Earlier in the season, Todd Day had exploded for a career-high 43 points as the Razorbacks defeated LSU, 101-90, at Baton Rouge. The Tigers recovered from the defeat, though, and by the time they arrived at Barnhill Arena, they had tied the Hogs for the SEC lead.

LSU’s first ever visit to Fayetteville would determine the SEC championship.

The Tigers started strong. Shaquille O’Neal did his best to quiet an overflow crowd of 9,518 with 11 points in the opening half as LSU roared to a 51-36 advantage. O’Neal, however, scored his last points with 11:37 remaining to give the Tigers a 69-58 lead before the Razorbacks charged back.

Lee Mayberry, who hit a then-school record nine three-point field goals and finished with 35 points, teamed with Day, who finished with 27, to bring the Hogs from behind. Mayberry’s last three-pointer tied the game at 87-all and Oliver Miller blocked O’Neal’s shot at the buzzer to force overtime.

Arkansas blitzed the Tigers, 19-5, in the extra period. Day scored nine points and Mayberry had four during that time. The victory sent Barnhill Arena into a frenzy and the Razorbacks on the way to their first SEC title.
