The legend of local basketball phenom Malik Monk is growing.
The 6-foot-3 sophomore guard, who transferred to Bentonville from his hometown in East Poinsett County before this season, hit an incredible last-second shot to beat conference rivals Springdale on Tuesday night.
After Springdale hit a layup to go up by two points on the Tigers as time expired, officials added 0.8 seconds to the clock. The extra fraction of a second allowed Bentonville to inbound the ball to Monk, who was able to hit a three-pointer over two defenders to win the game by one point.
Monk, who is the brother of former Razorback wide receiver and current graduate assistant on Mike Anderson’s staff Marcus Monk, is averaging over 27 points and 7 rebounds per game for Bentonville.
Did we mention he’s only a sophomore?
He’ll be a top priority recruit for the Razorbacks in the class of 2016.
