Arkansas' smallest player made the biggest plays for the Razorbacks. Kareem Reid made several clutch plays in the final 2:11, including a steal and pass to set up Pat Bradley's go-ahead three-pointer, and Arkansas went on to top visting Pittsburgh, 76-71, in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament. The 5-10 Reid also fired a pass to Ali Thompson for a basket that made it 71-67, stole a pass and flipped it behind his back as he was going out of bounds, and got the ball to Derek Hood for a basket that made it 73-67.

Add a rack of balls, ask everyone but the bombers to pull up a chair, and it would have been like watching the NBA's three-point shootout. Twwisssh - Lee Mayberry from 20. Zzzingg - Mayberry from 22. Swooosh - Todd Day from waaaay out there above the key. Chooomp - Mayberry back for more, from R.F.D. country. Four shots, 12 points. Two minutes, 19 seconds. Blowout in progress. Dean Smith could only scratch at imaginary itches. One minute, it was 54-54, and with 10:44 left, North Carolina's magic man was starting to think he would steal one and see the Final Eight tomorrow.

One of these days, Georgetown freshman Allen Iverson should blossom into something every bit as awesome as advertised. And that day might not be far off. But for now, it says here that Arkansas junior Corliss Williamson is the best basketball player the NCAA has to offer. Teammate Scotty Thurman, another junior, isn't far behind. And they represent just two of the numerous reasons many folks think the Razorbacks will successfully defend their national championship this season.

The University of Arkansas yesterday said it would ask the NCAA to allow quarterback Ryan Mallett to play immediately for the Razorbacks without sitting out a year. Mallett transferred from Michigan after Rich Rodriguez replaced retiring coach Lloyd Carr. Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long said the appeal was based on "extenuating circumstances. " A school spokesman would not elaborate on what Long meant by that phrase. Jim Mallett, the quarterback's father, also declined comment.

University of Arkansas president B. Allan Sugg said yesterday that he would recommend to the school's board tomorrow that the Razorbacks leave the Southwest Conference and become a member of the Southeastern Conference. Jack Crowe, Arkansas' first-year football coach, said he expected to be playing an SEC schedule by 1992. The move, which would end the university's 76-year alliance with the SWC, would mark the second time recently that a major conference had taken in a new school.

The extraordinary sight of an Arkansas anchorman being outkicked in the stretch was one of several gripping moments yesterday in the 109th Penn Relays at Franklin Field. The Razorbacks, with 15 distance medley relay titles since 1983, rarely suffer such insult. The defending champions' hopes for a repeat were dashed by a schedule that was running late and Nathan Brannen, running the anchor leg for Michigan. The closing leg in the distance medley relay is 1,600 meters, and Alistair Cragg, the junior from South Africa who anchored for Arkansas, had a two-meter lead and two options when he got the baton.

Trent Richardson rushed for 120 yards and caught a 61-yard touchdown pass, and No. 3 Alabama overwhelmed No. 14 Arkansas in a 38-14 win on Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) scored on special teams and defense, and used the old-fashioned power run to emphatically win the SEC West showdown that the Razorbacks (3-1, 0-1) hoped would stamp them as legitimate contenders. Instead, the league's top defense thoroughly overpowered Tyler Wilson and the No. 1 offense.

Kansas coach Roy Williams looked like a point guard. Weaving his way through the joyous clutter at center court, Williams had a simple game plan: Find each of his 13 players, give him a small hug and a big pat on the back. Led by the furiously determined Alonzo Jamison, Williams' Jayhawks, seeded No. 3, upset No. 1 seed Arkansas, 93-81, yesterday to win the NCAA Southeast Regional championship at the Charlotte Coliseum. "This is the best," Jamison said. "The absolute best.

Jason Peters watched the NFC divisional playoff game with his family in Texas. He was not happy to be watching it because he felt the Eagles were good enough to be playing in the game at Green Bay. The veteran offensive tackle was still not over the fact that his team had let a 9-3 start dissolve into a disastrous ending that included three straight losses to Seattle, Dallas, and Washington. "I felt like if we had made the playoffs we could have contended for the ring," Peters said last week after a long and hot Eagles workout.

Arkansas coach John L. Smith is trying to wipe away $25.7 million in debt in bankruptcy court and hang onto $1.2 million in retirement accounts and some personal property, all while he leads the Razorbacks through one of the strangest seasons in team history. Smith, who loudly implored reporters to "smile" at a press conference this week, has a meeting with a long list of creditors at U.S. Bankruptcy court in Fayetteville on Oct. 12, the day before the Razorbacks host Kentucky. Smith was coaching Louisville when he began investing in real estate, which he has said, was profitable until land values took a nosedive.
