FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Call it the monster #SCTop10 dunk heard around the nation.

Razorback Michael Qualls, who has struggled to begin SEC play, made the play of the year so far in college basketball -- dunking home the game-winning basketball in an 85 all tie with .02 seconds remaining to give Arkansas its first SEC win of the season in a 87-85 upset victory over #13 Kentucky. The game was nationally televised on ESPN. 

Qualls, along with Rashad Madden each scored 18 points.  It's the third straight loss for Kentucky at Bud Walton Arena.

Immediately after the dunk, social media lit up with Hog-related tweets.   Qualls and Arkansas were trending nationwide.   Hog-related tweets remain the top trends in Little Rock Wednesday morning.
