Let's Win This For Lawrence Moten: Syracuse vs. Arkansas November 30 In SEC/Big East Challenge

Nate Shron

Remember that rumor that the Syracuse Orange were going to play the Missouri Tigers on the road as part of the SEC/Big East Challenge? Well, only one part of that rumor turned out to be true...the road part.

The Orange will actually be traveling to Fayetteville, Arkansas to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks on Nov. 30 at Bud Walton Arena

It's been a long time since that 1994 National Title for Arkansas. The Hogs are coming off an 18-14 season, which included losses to fellow SU opponents UConn and Florida.

Still, it's a "true" road game for the Orange and what it lacks in marquee attraction it makes up for in newness and intrigue. And maybe some of them will be pissed off about the Quinta Funderburk thing.

Between this and the San Diego St. game, I don't want to hear any whining about our non-con schedule this year.

Syracuse is 0-1 all-time against Arkansas, a 96-94 heartbreaker in the 1995 NCAA Tournament famously remembered as the Lawrence Moten Brainfart Game.

The Razorbacks uncharacteristically blew a 12-point second-half lead, then in the final minute threw away what might have been the game's last possession. Only a monumental brain cramp by Syracuse's star player, Lawrence Moten -- calling a timeout Syracuse didn't have -- allowed Arkansas to dig a fingernail into the precipice.

Moments later, the PA announcer corrected himself about UCLA-Missouri, Arkansas pulled itself up to force overtime and score on all seven of its OT possessions to win 96-94, and the tourney bracket stood.

Let's do this for Lawrence, you guys.
