Arkansas Knocked Off Kentucky with an Insane Buzzer-Beating Putback Dunk (Video)
The Arkansas Razorbacks would have taken any kind of win over the #13 Kentucky Wildcats last night. After starting the season 11-2, they lost two in a row to A&M and Florida to kick off SEC play. If they wanted to stay afloat in the conference (which is looking surprisingly tough this year), they needed to avoid going 0-3.
Well, they did. They managed to beat the heralded Wildcats, 87-85. And it was no ordinary, wind-down-the-clock, get-fouled-and-hit-your-free-throws kind of win. Instead, Arkansas defeated Kentucky with a buzzer-beating putback dunk.
Yep, you read that right. Buzzer. Beating. Putback. Dunk.
Take a look:
Now that’s how you cap an upset. Like I said, any win would have done. But this is the kind of win that can energize a team and change a season. It will be interesting to see where the Razorbacks go from here.
