1983 Arkansas-Houston game
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:32:53 pm »

In another topic, Wilson mentioned the 1983 Arkansas-Houston game.

I was lucky enough to be in the crowd that night and it got me to thinking..has there ever been one game at Arkansas with more NBA talent on the floor at one time?

For Arkansas, Darrel Walker, Joe Kleine, Alvin Robertson

Houston, Akeem Olujuwan, Clyde Drexler, Michael Young, and I believe Larry Micheaux as well that is seven of 10 players.

Maybe Arkansas-UNLV in 1991, I dont know.

I had been lucky in the student lottery that year and had seats in the second row. I know I will never forget the game.

Happier times...

Was in college at the time and drove around Fayetteville with "Akeem the WET dream" shoe polished on the back glass.  Received a ton of thumbs ups for that one!  Great game!

That was my senior year and I was at all the games.  Olajuwon made such a jump in his ability from his freshman year to his soph and Jr seasons.  He was pretty raw but man he improved and of course became a HOF player in the NBA.  Those Hog/Houston games were great.
