Talk about a way to win a game. As the commentator in the old NBA Jam might say, Boomshakalaka.

Grandstand finish is an overused term in sporting circles, in that while they are often hyped up beforehand and do happen occasionally, more often than not, fans expecting a dramatic end to proceedings in a sporting event are left disappointed.

That certainly wasn’t the case in the South Eastern Conference college basketball encounter between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the University of Kentucky last night, when Michael Qualls slammed home a dunk with just of a fifth of a second left in overtime to seal the most dramatic of victories.

It mightn’t look all that much on first viewing but you’ll see on the replay how far back Qualls had to reach the control the ball after getting his hands on the rebound from the original three-point attempt and when he did, he powered it home with both hands and with such force that he nearly broke the basket.

Needless to say, the crowd and Qualls’ teammates were mildly happy with his contribution.
