Arkansas ended its Maui Invitational trip with a 2-1 record and gifted college basketball fans with instant classics in the last two games. That included Wednesday’s 78-74 overtime win over San Diego State. That game saw Arkansas score on a stick-back to tie the game at 67-67 at the end of regulation before pulling out a win in the extra five-minute period.
“It’s big. Last night we really just, the game happened how it happened,” Trevon Brazile said of overcoming the close loss to Creighton. “Really, we just tried to put that behind us today, come back and get the win, and we did that.”
Arkansas’ win probability, according to statistics website KenPom, sat at just 4.8% before the tip-in. But with 20 points and nine rebounds off the bench from Brazile, along with 19 points from Ricky Council and 15 from Anthony Black, Arkansas saw a way to battle through and grab the team’s biggest win to date this year.
