Of the Final Four game against UNC. Some Tar Heel fan on Quora asked if UNC would have won the game if Jerry Stackhouse hadn’t been injured early in the game.
The future Vanderbilt coach scored 18 points that day, so he must not have been too badly injured. Stack took more free throws himself (10) than the entire Arkansas team (9).
But a couple of other things I noticed.
Scotty Thurman had a horrible game (2-10 from the field, 6 points). Al Dillard was even worse (0-5, no points). We didn’t shoot well (.378) and we didn’t get to the line. But we got 16 offensive rebounds against Stackhouse, Rasheed Wallace, etc., and won the turnover battle 15-9. So we got 18 more shot attempts than the Heels. And we also held them to 37% from the floor.
That’s the game where Dwight Stewart made the 55-foot shot right before halftime. Stewart scored 15, second high on the team to Corliss with 21.
