On this week in 1993-94, the Hogs ascended to the top of the national polls for the first time since Sidney Moncrief was on the cover of Sports Illustrated in February 1978.
After a 111-76 shellacking of Northwestern State in Fayetteville, Arkansas took its No. 1 ranking over to the Pyramid in Memphis to take on the rival Tigers.
Memphis had lost Penny Hardaway to the Orlando Magic but still had a formidable team. They were led by David Vaughn’s 20 points but no other Tigers hit double figures.
However, it was no match for the Razorbacks. They turned a close game at halftime (42-40) into a rout, outscoring the hosts 54-38 in the second half and hit 12 3-pointers, led by Memphis native Dwight Stewart’s 4 for 4.
Corliss had 18 in the 96-78 triumph, he was one of six Razorbacks to end the game in double figures. Stewart, Clint McDaniel, Scotty Thurman, Alex Dillard, and Darnell Robinson were the others to hit that mark.
