Arkansas Basketball, 1980s

Playing without a shot clock in those days, Arkansas forced North Carolina to play at a slower place. But the Tar Heels overcame a 10-point deficit in the second half and took a 64-63 lead after two consecutive baskets from Jordan. With nine seconds left, Alvin Robertson tried a jump shot but passed at the last second to Charles Balentine, who snagged the ball before it went out of bounds and flipped it into the hoop. North Carolina called a timeout but its last-second heave rimmed out and fans stormed the court.
