After nearly defeating the Florida Gators on Saturday in overtime, the Arkansas Razorbacks basketball team severely needed a pick-me-up on Tuesday night against the Kentucky Wildcats, something that would be a lot easier said than done against the 13th-ranked team in the nation.

However, Arkansas came to play in this one against one of the best teams in the SEC and were able to force yet another overtime contest, their second in a row.

This time, though, they were able to get the job done, thanks to the heads-up effort of Michael Qualls with everything on the line.

After Kentucky had drained a three-pointer to tie the game up at 85, the Razorbacks brought the ball down the court, and with three seconds to go, Rashad Madden lofted a three attempt that bounced off the rim and had everyone in attendance at the Bud Walton Arena holding their breath.

Then, Michael Qualls made the entire place explode with this:

Time was put back on the clock, but it was all for naught for Kentucky as they weren’t able to avoid their fate tonight, thanks to the concentration of Qualls.
