Mickelson’s dunk makes ESPN’s Top 10

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Freshman Hunter Mickelson’s dunk in the second half against the No. 25 Vanderbilt Commodores was rated the No. 8 play on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays late Tuesday night. Mickelson took a pass at the top of the key with six minutes to play and backed down Vanderbilt’s Festus Ezeli. He then used a drop step to work his way around the 6-11 center and threw down a thunderous dunk to put the Razorbacks up 69-57 against the Commodores in a game that Arkansas won 82-74. The win improved Arkansas’ record to 16-6 overall and 4-3 in Southeastern Conference play. Mickelson’s dunk is the first play by a Razorback basketball player to make SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays this season. The play by Mickelson was sent in by a fan using SportsCenter’s twitter account #SCtop10. Mickelson finished the game 4-of-4 from the field and 1-of-1 from three for nine points while also grabbing three rebounds and blocking one shot.
