During the 1990-91 season, Arkansas challenged the nation’s preeminent team: No. 1 UNLV. The rebels were defending champions and riding a 30-game winning streak that spanned two seasons. The No. 2 Razorbacks, winners of 20 straight, couldn’t keep pace with the Rebels — a group Richardson dubbed “the NBA’s second-best team.” In the only No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup in school history, UNLV outlasted Arkansas 112-105.
