Arkansas Basketball, 1990s

Playing in the unfriendly confines of Charlotte Coliseum — just two hours from Duke’s campus — the game was a tight-knit affair. But momentum swayed in the Hogs’ favor in the final minute, when Thurman swished a high-arching three-pointer as the shot clock wound down to put Arkansas up by three. Stifling defense and two Clint McDaniel free throws during the final seconds helped Arkansas secure a 76-72 victory and the national championship.
