# 1 UNLV vs. # 2 Arkansas from 2/10/91.
Does anyone else remember this game, or am I surrounded by a bunch of youngin's and millennials on this board? Please take note of the old "SLOBBERIN' HOG" logo at mid-court, and at the old SWC (Southwest Conference) letters in the key!
Yep, I was there. 49-46 Hogs at the half, UNLV turned it up and built a 23-point lead, final ended up being 112-105.
Bad outcome, good game, unbelievable buildup to the game. What I remember the most was the progame hype, the tents camping outside Barnhill Arena. CBS and their #1 crew of Jim Nantz and Billy Packer being in town. #1 versus #2 in a February matchup.
Also contained one of the best dunks I recall---George Ackles of UNLV coming down the lane in the second half and throwing one down across his body.
Another nugget about this weekend was it was same weekend as the epic Buster Douglas upset over Mike Tyson.
