Razorbacks Suffer Heartbreaker at No. 4 Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Immanuel Quickley made two free throws with one second left to secure a 70-66 victory for the fourth-ranked Kentucky Wildcats over Arkansas Tuesday night at Rupp Arena.

Tyler Herro, who scored a game-high 29 points, was fouled and made two free throws to give Kentucky a three-point lead.

Thanks to Joe, who also had a steal and ally-oop pass to Reggie Chaney for a dunk, Arkansas went on a 7-0 run, led 15-11 at 11:53 to force a Kentucky timeout.

Isaiah Joe hit a deep 3-pointer as the shot clock expired (at 14:40) to give him 98 for the season, tying Pat Bradley for third on the school’s single-season list.

Arkansas’ starters were Desi Sills (G) – Isaiah Joe (G) – Jalen Harris (G) – Daniel Gafford (F) – Gabe Osabuohien (F).

The sophomore, who earned his second career start, had five rebounds, four assists, a blocked shot and took his 21st charge of the season.
