Arkansas Basketball, 1990s

In the national title game, Arkansas faced Duke University, the darling of college basketball. The Blue Devils had been in four of the last five title games, winning it all in 1991 and 1992. Ahead of the 1994 championship, Richardson told Charlie Rose what he’d said to his team: “When they started the NCAA Tournament, there were 64 basketball teams … out of those 64 teams, 63 can beat us. But the thing that I’m impressed with, that you can beat the 63.”
