FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Arkansas hired former NBA coach and Indiana University basketball star Keith Smart as an assistant coach on Wednesday.
Smart is best known for hitting the game-winning shot for Indiana in the 1987 national championship game against Syracuse. He played for Arkansas coach Eric Musselman with the CBA's Rapid City Thrillers and Florida Beachdogs and was an assistant on Musselman's staff with the Golden State Warriors.
"I am excited to be reunited with coach Musselman, a person I've known for over 30 years, and to continue my growth as a basketball coach," Smart said.
