When Scotty Thurman was 6, he used to wad up a few pairs of socks, bend a hanger into a circle and fire the socks into the handmade hoop while he lay on the sofa in the living room of his home in Ruston, La. Levell Thurman didn't mind if his son shot socks, but when Scotty's mother, Roma, came home, he had to pack up the living room basketball game before she got a look at it.

Scotty Thurman made a three-point basket last April that gave Arkansas its first national championship. He made a 15-footer Sunday that gave the Razorbacks a regular-season victory they badly needed. Thurman's jump shot with 11 seconds to play in Fayetteville gave No. 9 Arkansas a 94-92 victory over No. 5 Kentucky, the Wildcats' first loss in the Southeastern Conference. It was also the Razorbacks' first game since their first loss in Walton Arena, last Tuesday night to Alabama.

It has been three months since Scotty Thurman's rainbow three-point jumper nestled into the basket and gave Arkansas the breathing room it needed to win an NCAA championship. But it wasn't until Thurman and Arkansas teammate Corey Beck arrived at UC Irvine last week as members of the U.S. Goodwill Games basketball team that the shouting began to die down. "We basically celebrated it all the way up until this point," said Thurman, who turns 20 in November.

Arkansas has made a habit of breaking open close games with a big burst on its way to 30 victories this season. "We know that we are going to have them, but we never really know when we'll get them," Arkansas guard Scotty Thurman said. "They come from different players. But once it starts, everyone just wants to get a part of it." * Don't tell Arkansas' Dwight Stewart that Duke has an advantage tonight because the Blue Devils have reached the NCAA championship game four times in five years.

Arkansas was not surprised that UCLA was able to break the Razorbacks' full-court pressure defense. Other teams have had success against them doing so this season. What did surprise the Razorbacks, however, was how the Bruins finished once they did pass halfcourt. "The whole game was up-tempo, which is how we like to play," Scotty Thurman said. "What the difference was is what they did once they broke our press and how strong they finished plays."

It did not take long for defending champion Arkansas to bounce back from an embarrassing opening-game loss, as the Razorbacks routed Georgetown, 97-79, Sunday in the first game of the inaugural Martin Luther King Classic doubleheader. Before a crowd of 18,245 at The Pyramid, Corliss Williamson scored 22 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, and Scotty Thurman and Clint McDaniel added 16 points each to lead Arkansas, which lost to Massachusetts, 104-80, Friday night.

Nolan Richardson's teams have won some big games during his eight years as Arkansas' coach, but none was as important to Richardson as Sunday's 86-80 victory over No. 9 Arizona at Tucson. "To me, this is probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest, wins . . . simply because we were an unknown," Richardson said. "I didn't know if we had the squad to win here. We didn't have an identity. But now I think we've changed the expectations of some people."

North Carolina will go into Saturday's semifinal game against Arkansas nursing some bumps and bruises. Coach Dean Smith read an impromptu report on the injuries on Tuesday. "Donald Williams, sprained left ankle, status unknown, hasn't seen him yet today," Smith read. "Jeff McInnis, pulled groin muscle, not any better than yesterday. "Rasheed Wallace, sprained ankle, improved over yesterday. Pierce Landry sprained right wrist, slightly improved over yesterday but wrist is still tender."
