Arkansas Men Upset No. 19 Michigan, 66-64

Posted: Updated:

University of Arkansas men's basketball team knocked off No. 20/19 Michigan 66-64 Saturday afternoon at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville.

The Razorbacks improve to 14-5 overall and 14-0 at home, while Michigan drops to 15-5.  The Razorback victory is Arkansas' second over a top 20 opponent at Bud Walton Arena this season.

With a slim two-point lead and just over a minute to play, freshman BJ Young blocked a shot on the defensive end and then found freshman Hunter Mickelson with a nifty pass off a pick and roll as the shot clock ran out. Mickelson converted a tough shot in the lane, giving Arkansas a 66-62 lead that they would hold for the final 42 seconds of play.

Young poured in a gritty 15 points to lead Arkansas in scoring for the eighth time this season.

Michigan had possession of the ball down two with a chance to tie, but Arkansas came up with the stop as Trey Burke's three-pointer at the buzzer rattled off the rim.

The Razorbacks return to Southeastern Conference action Wednesday, Jan. 25 with a 8 p.m. contest against Auburn inside Bud Walton Arena.
