Arkansas' Michael Qualls jams in the game-winner as the Razorbacks defeated Kentucky, 87-85, in overtime in Fayetteville, Ark., on Tuesday Jan. 14, 2014.

The five players on the floor for Kentucky saw an Arkansas three-point shot attempt. Michael Qualls saw an opportunity. The Razorbacks' guard stunned the No. 13 Wildcats with a game-winning put-back dunk in the final second of overtime on Tuesday night at Bud Walton Arena.

The SEC foes were level 85-85 as the clock ticked under 10 seconds in overtime and Arkansas' Ky Madden seemed to be playing for the final shot before the buzzer. He dribbled the down the clock on the right wing before lofting a high-arcing three-point shot with less than three seconds remaining. Five Kentucky defenders stood and watched Madden's shot soar toward the basket. Once Madden's shot was in the air, Qualls came crashing into the paint from the far wing. He seized the rebound and the moment after the ball bounced high off the rim.

"Crashing the boards in that type of situation is the best time to crash the boards," Qualls said after his dunk lifted Arkansas to a 87-85 win, via The Associated Press."They forget about you. I just saw an opportunity and took it."
