Where did the 1994 Arkansas National Champions rank on ESPN's list of the Top 74 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Champions?

NCAA Tournament turns 75

The 1994 Razorbacks had only one future NBA first-round pick -- forward Corliss Williamson -- but coach Nolan Richardson had a collection of tough, tenacious, blue-collar players, who were more than willing to wear down opponents with his "40 Minutes of Hell" defensive pressure. The Razorbacks were ranked No. 1 for 10 weeks during the regular season. After going 25-3, they were the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region and won their first five NCAA tournament games by at least eight points. In the national semifinals, Arkansas guards Corey Beck and Clint McDaniel smothered Arizona guards Damon Stoudamire and Khalid Reeves in a 91-82 victory. Against Duke in the championship game, Scotty Thurman hit a 3-pointer with 51 seconds left to lift Arkansas to a 76-72 victory and its first national championship. -- Mark Schlabach
