Kentucky at Arkansas final score: Razorbacks slam away Wildcats' hopes in OT 87-85

The Arkansas Razorbacks completed one of the more poorly officiated games of the college basketball season with quite possibly the greatest play of the year as the Razorbacks knocked off the 13th-ranked Kentucky Wildcats in overtime, 87-85.

With three seconds to go in the game, Arkansas’ Rashad Madden lofted up a three-pointer with the game tied at 85 that bounced off the rim. But luckily, Michael Qualls was there for the amazing put-back dunk to eventually seal away the win for the Razorbacks in their second straight overtime contest.

It was a completely fortunate ending for a game that would have otherwise been known for the ridiculous amount of fouls that were called in this one, extending the game to nearly three hours of play.

This win for Arkansas comes right off the heels of their overtime thriller this past Saturday against the Florida Gators, a game that they let slip away in the final five minutes.

On Tuesday night, they didn’t let this one slip away. Michael Qualls made sure of that.
