Qualls dunk lifts Arkansas past #13 Kentucky in overtime

Posted:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Michael Qualls slammed home a thundering two-hand dunk with .2 seconds remaining in overtime to send Arkansas to an 87-85 victory over No. 13 Kentucky on Tuesday night.

The win ends a two-game losing streak for the Razorbacks (12-4, 1-2 Southeastern Conference), who have now won three straight at home over the Wildcats.

Qualls, who finished with 18 points, flew in from the baseline as time was winding down and corralled Ky Madden's 3-point miss for the dunk - sending the season-high Bud Walton Arena crowd of 18,619 into a frenzy.

Madden had 18 points for Arkansas, while Alandise Harris finished with 12 and Bobby Portis 11.

James Young led Kentucky (12-4, 2-1) with 23 points, while Julius Randle had 20 and Aaron Harrison 16.
