The Razorbacks overcame a four point deficit in the final 30 seconds against Missouri. Young scored the Hogs' final seven points to win it.
"It was a gut check for our basketball team and it was a game that could've went either way," Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said. "Our guys dug down deep and made some plays."
"For a minute there it looked kind of bleak for us," Young added. "We had to just keep fighting."
"It was crazy," Hog forward Marshawn Powell said. "We just kept it in our mind to make another stop if we had to. That 30 seconds was just sitting back and watching my man (Young) do what he does best."
This victory carries extra meaning for Anderson. He coached Mizzou for five seasons taking the Tigers to the brink of the Final Four. He's also known Missouri players Phil Pressey and Laurence Bowers since they were children.
"It was an emotional game as the story lines have read but the thing about that is I don't play in the game," Anderson said. "I could see with Phil and Laurence, I thought, you could see the emotion maybe hit them a little bit. Like a father, I guess when you them, it's like you kind of glow because they came as young boys and now these guys are men. There's a strong feeling. There's an attachment that will be there forever."
Pressey and Bowers will move on but these two schools are now permanently linked in the SEC. Missouri could potentially become the Hogs' true geographic rival.
"As the years go on, as they're being in our conference, it's going to get interesting," Powell said.
"I think this will be one of the bigger games people look forward to every year," Young explained. "Missouri and Arkansas are right down the road from each other. A lot of ties. I think this could turn into a rivalry game."
