40 Minutes Flashback
« on: March 30, 2017, 09:38:13 pm »


# 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?  :razorback:  Please take note of the old "SLOBBERIN' HOG" logo at  mid-court, and at the old SWC (Southwest Conference) letters in the key!

Ok, I had to stop watching that. Just spent about 15 minutes at work watching the first half. Had to stop before I got caught. I was only 13 when that game happened, but I remember it being pretty good despite the finish.

I was there. That UNLV bunch was an ungodly group of talent. They owned the building that day.

I was on a ski trip out west when that game was played. We took the day off so we could all sit around the rental house to watch it.

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.

I remember driving past KFC on 6th Street a couple of hours after the game. UNLV had stopped there and all the players were walking out of the restaurant.

Also remember the incredible number of private jets at Drake that day.

What an atmosphere!

Thanks for the replies and the memories, guys. Hopefully a few others who are our age or older weigh in about this game/day. I remember the TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF HYPE before the game took place.  It was just such a sexy match-up...not only 1 vs 2, but two teams LOADED WITH TALENT that LOVED to press and run N' gun.   The way basketball SHOULD be played.

Thanks for sharing, 40Min! I remember it well. So much talent on the court that day from both teams.

hahaha, thanks LittleLadyBack. It's always nice to run into a fellow "Nolan/40 Minutes of Hell" fan on here.   :razorback: :)  I realize I am in the minority, but TO ME, Arkansas basketball will ALWAYS BE  NOLAN AND the 40 MINUTES ERA. :)

I watched most of it.  I was 12 yrs old at the time.  I remember my cousins came over and we decided to ride 4 wheelers after UNLV pulled away. 

We had a great day and tore thru the fields.  Much better than watching the end of that one.

I will never forget this game. I remember being in denial about "THE PUNCH". I didn't want to believe that Todd Day let Larry Johnson punk him like that.  I'm glad that CNR listened to LJ and went out and got a some men. I always wonder how the 94 Hogs would have matched up against this UNLV team.

I was there on row two. My fraternity brother who worked for the Dallas Mavericks traded 4 tickets to see Michael Jordan for two similar tickets to the UNLV game. Right before halftime was the loudest I ever heard Barnhill. Went to UNLVs hotel before game and met Larry Johnson and Tark. Coach Crowe went to airport and picked up Walter Payton and brought him to Hotel. Walter, Larry and Tark were all very nice and actually spent about 30 minutes talking with us. Tark ried to talk  me into  attending his adult basketball camp on a cruise ship. We beat them for a half.But the rubber band man Stacey Augman was too much for us.
