Razorback Rewind is my next-day look-back -- via Twitter -- at the Hogs' most-recent game. I'm going to post these here after every game, so the next 3 posts will be from the first three games (Samford, Bucknell, and Fresno State) and I will add a post the day after each game as we move forward through the season.

Razorback Rewind: Samford ...

* Razorback Rewind: Senior guards @Daryl4Macon (16 pts, 8 asts), @Jbarford1 (16 pts, 6 asts), and @antonbeard31 (14 pts, 6 asts) set the tone at both ends as Arkansas began the 95-56 beatdown early against a good Samford team!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929409908860211200

* Razorback Rewind: Arkansas had unbelievable stat of 28 assists on 36 made FGs! Testament to great job of moving the ball, timing, unselfishness, and decision-making. Samford defense never able to string together a series of stops.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929411730744020993

* Razorback Rewind: Arkansas's starting frontline bounced back from a mediocre preseason nicely. Sophomore F @adriobailey w/career-high 15 pts (7-of-8 FGs & 1-of-1 FTs), 6 rbs, 2 blks, 1 stl, 1 ast ... and senior captain @T_Top24 w/8 pts (4-of-4 FGs), game-high 8 rbs, 3 ast, 1 stl.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929418337687306241

* Razorback Rewind: Arkansas's defense was on lock-down mode all night long as the Hogs made everything tough for Samford, forcing 19 turnovers while holding the Bulldogs' to 20-of-61 FGs (32.8%) ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929419029227372544

* Razorback Rewind: Sophomore SG @Cj_jones2 continues to impress w/his efficient catch-&-shoot and ball-fake-&-one-dribble pull-up game! In 21 mins off the bench, Jones had 10 pts (4-of-7 FGs incl 2-of-5 from 3), 3 rbs, 1 ast.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929424125172600833

* Worth pointing out, too, that @Cj_jones2 elevates with plus-hops: His rebounds are above the rim and he homed an alley-oop last night in spectacular fashion!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929424657396137984

* Razorback Rewind: Freshmen on display in 1st college game: @Dan_G33 w/10 pts (4-of-6 FGs incl 3 dunks), 4 rbs, 3 blks, 2 asts in 17 mins; @bigdayday4 w/3 pts (thunder-dunk), 3 rbs, 1 stl in 12 mins; @GO22_LT w/2 pts (dunk) and drew 2 charges in 10 mins.

Razorback Rewind: Bucknell

* Hogs (2-0) just dominated a good Bucknell team -- 101-73 -- that's likely going back to the NCAAT at the end of the season. 1st two games just feel like vintage Hawgball! Offense is rolling, D gettin' nasty, & the dunks are flowin'!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929878380610236418

* Senior guards @Jbarford1 (27 pts) @Daryl4Macon (21) @antonbeard31 (11) continued their bucket barage tonite, Hogs dominated glass (41-25 led by @T_Top24 gm-high 11 rbs) and won TO battle (18-13, forced 10 stls & had 5 blks)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929880811163258881

* Hogs' youth movement was big again! Sophs @adriobailey (7 pts, 4 rbs, 2 stls, 2 blks, 2 stls) @Cj_jones2 (7 pts, 5 rbs, 1 ast, 1 stl) and freshmen @Dan_G33 (15 pts, 3 rbs) @bigdayday4 (6 pts, 4 rbs, 2 blks, 1 stl) @GO22_LT (2 pts, 2 rbs, & 1 drawn charge) ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929881220787458049

* Hogs' O can get U in so many ways! Fri nite it was all about movement & sharing the ball (28 asts on 36 made FGs), but tonite (only 12 asts, but 38-of-71 FGs for 53.5%) it was more about the one-on-one ability of guards @Jbarford1 @Daryl4Macon @antonbeard31 @Cj_jones2.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929883929179549697

* No problem! Arkansas has been sharp and on point so far this season ... in fact, the 9 available scholarship ballers have played so aggressively and effectively, it feels like the full stable of 12 are running through their opponents ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/929890162590535680

* This is just one reason I've compared Hog freshman @bigdayday4 to Hog alum @Mr_WALKONAIR ... both ballers attack the rim with bad intentions ... nasty!

Razorback Rewind: Fresno State

* Razorback Rewind: In a game that "felt" like it was headed for another 20-plus-point win, the Hogs (3-0, RPI No. 39) struggled down the stretch while holding off a determined & solid Fresno State squard, 83-75, last nite at BWA.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931921445831180289

* Arkansas continued to play stingy 1st-half D (a repeat of first 2 gms), but had a 2nd-half back-slide. Nonetheless, Hogs have taken down 3 quality mid-majors on the heels of next wk's loaded PK80 Invitational. Speaking of Heels, a win vs OU on Thurs puts No. 9 UNC front & center!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931925887116808193

* Razorback Rewind: Estimated actual attendance at BWA last nite was 12,227 ... reportedly the largest crowd at a Hog game in Nov since Arkansas hosted Syracuse in @MikeAndersonUA's 2nd season as HC (2012-13) ... it was certainly the loudest BWA in Nov in recent memory ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931927332734021638

* Razorback Rewind: I knew covering him in high school that @Dan_G33 was going to be a pro down the line, but I had no idea how quickly he'd dominate at the college level ... 25 pts (9-of-11 FGs incl 6 dunks, & 7-of-10 FTs), 8 rbs, 3 blks, 2 stls, & 1 ast in 30 dominant mins!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931928556250288130

* .@Dan_G33's been better offensively than expected, & the combo of his size, length, athleticism, & instincts around the basket & in transition at both ends has not been seen before at Arkansas. Thru 3 gms, Dan avg 21.0 min, 16.7 pts (75% FGs, 10 dunks, 70% FTs), 5.0 rbs, 2.0 blks

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931930622922317825

* Razorback Rewind: Senior CG @antonbeard31 had his best gm of the young season -- 15 pts (5-9 FGs & 4-6 FTs), 3 rbs, 3 asts, & ZERO turnovers ... on a night when backcourt mate @Daryl4Macon was struggling, Beard picked up the slack w/tough, feisty, smart, & efficient productivity!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931932027154239489

* In fact, @antonbeard31's 3-game start to the season is his most efficient, productive stretch in memory = 13.3 pts (46.4% FGs and 85.7% FTs are well above career %), 3.3 asts (only 1.3 TOs), & tm-best 1.3 stls ... Beard's impact has been big so far ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931934011362107393

* Razorback Rewind: Senior CG @Jbarford1 w/another solid floor gm = 18 pts, 7 rbs, & tm-high 5 asts in 35 min ... senior CG @Daryl4Macon had an off night, but still managed 11 pts, 2 rbs, 1 ast, 1 stl, 1 blk ... Hogs' senior trio of guards have each scored double-figures all 3 gms!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931936328635371521

* As a team, Arkansas lost reb battle (40-33), but won turnovers (16-11), pts-off-turnovers (20-11), bench scoring (31-17), and blks/stls (6/5 to 2/5) ... Hogs' D has been stingy for 4 of 6 halves this season, with 2nd half of Bucknell & Fresno St being the outliers ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/931937647634927621

* Razorback Rewind: Youth movement continues to have positive impact! Sophs @Cj_jones2 (6 pts, 2 rbs in 16 mins) @adriobailey (5 pts, 5 rbs, 2 blks in 28 mins) bring unique talents to the floor every gm ... freshman @bigdayday4 @GO22_LT infused energy, toughness, & havoc on D!

Razorback Rewind: Oklahoma

* Razorback Rewind: Senior guard @Daryl4Macon had his best game of the young season = 27 pts (7-of-13 FGs incl 6-of-8 from 3, plus 7-of-7 FTs), 5 rbs, 2 stls, 1 ast. Hogs' senior guards Macon, @Jbarford1 (19 pts) @antonbeard31 (14 pts) have each scored double-figues all 4 games!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934093017962643457

* Guards were good going 1-on-1 vs OU (especially early in gm), but I thought the O got stagnant as they dribbled too much & held onto the ball too long looking for driving opportunites. O ran better thru the bigs. Quick turnaround v UNC, so mins a concern (each played at least 34)

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934094393228787712

* Razorback Rewind: Freshman center @Dan_G33 continued to provide breath-taking moments vs OU, then he delivered a back-breaking dagger on a baseline 18-footer w/a min to play that extended a 2-pt lead to 4 ... 13 pts (4-of-6 FGs & 5-of-6 FTs), 8 rbs, 2 stl, 2 ast, 1 blk in 25 mins

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934096267315118086

* Big man @Dan_G33's early impact is reminiscent of Hog greats @CoachCorliss @RustonRifle & Joe Johnson! Those guys didn't just flash glimpses of their greatness, they brought it as rookies! Big test today for Dan vs UNC, but he OWNED Heels' starting frosh PF Garrison Brooks in HS!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934098046786338816

* Razorback Rewind: At a position that has been an enigma in recent years, the combo-4 spot came up big for the Hogs as 6-6 sophomore @adriobailey started & 6-8 senior @YehThatsMe_DT13 finished ... the 2 combined for 40 mins, 14 pts (4-of-8 FGs & 6-of-8 FTs), 16 rbs, 1 stl, 1 blk!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934101190274666496

* .@adriobailey was big early w/energy & hustle plays when both teams were clicking, but late when the game became more of a physical/grinding halfcourt affair, @YehThatsMe_DT13 was tough on the glass & defensively ... perfect combo that Hogs hope bleeds into today's rematch w/UNC!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934102762744315904

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs won glass (41-35) & TOs (19-16), but most encouraging sign was the D playing better in the 2nd half. UA had held first 3 opponents each under 38% FGs in 1st-half, but had 2nd-half let-ups. Hogs flipped script v OU (51.5% FGs 1st-half, 40.6% FGs 2nd-half)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934106281224343552

* Looking at today's rematch against UNC, it will be important for Hogs to move the ball better on O while attacking the glass with a vengance. Perimeter D gave up too much penetration to OU yesterday, must stiffen up today. Backcourt bench help from Jones & Hall would be huge ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934107452139868160

* En route to winning 26 games last yr, Hogs were money at the FT line in close games. Yesterday vs. OU was more of the same as the Hogs shot 27-of-33 FTs (81.8%) ... @Daryl4Macon (perfect 7-of-7 FTs) continues to manufacture trips to the stripe late in gms when the O slows down.

Razorback Rewind: North Carolina

* Razorback Rewind: Despite jumping out to 8-2 lead, Hogs never in sync on O vs No. 9 UNC. As good as Macon, Barford, & Beard had been creating 1-on-1 prior, it came back to bite UA as each over-dribbled & stifled the motion O. UNC's D was very good, but Hogs made 'em look great!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934494591566348288

* In my pre-gm keys, I said it was important Hogs hit the glass w/a "vengance" ... that didn't happen, UNC won rebs 46-30. Also pointed to D problems of stopping penetration vs. OU, & that carried over to 'Heels, too, as Maye & others easily got to any spot on the court they wanted

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934496558921453568

* Razorback Rewind: Even though UNC looked like the better team, UA made several runs to get within 2-3 possessions, but what hurt the Hogs was what got them last year in the NCAAT = refs. That's right, the refs. Whistles for slaps, bumps, & collisions favored UNC by a lot, AGAIN!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934498632652525569

* No reason calls should be a 50/50 split for sake of being equitable, but when 2 physical, athletic teams R visibly scrapping w/only 1 of those teams benefitting by a wide margin from the whistles -- 21 FTs for UNC, 8 for Hogs -- it squashed any chance to complete a comeback.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934500480662810629

* One more ref whine: It wasn't just the number of one-sided calls & FT disparity, it was timing & situations that led to scoring swings ... i.e. flops by UNC led to charge calls/TOs/no pts for UA, but UA flop led to play-on & easy bucket for UNC. Ref-whining taboo, but fitting IMO

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934503140946317314

* Razorback Rewind: Bright spots in humbling 19-pt L in "The Rematch" ... @Jbarford1's 21 pts & his signature walk-down blk at the rim in transition, @adriobailey energy & 5 blks, @Cj_jones2 4-10 effort from 3 in extended mins, & @Dan_G33 impact when whistles weren't shackling him!

Razorback Rewind: Connecticut

* Hog Hoops Heaven! UA (5-1) jumps to RPI No. 7 w/102-67 win over UConn, capping 2 wins out of 3 gms vs high-major opponents (OU, UNC, UConn) to capture 3rd place in the PK80 Invt'l Victory bracket on Sunday. Want more? Hated Longhorns lost 2 OT heart-breakers at PK80 this wknd!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934918268665696256

* Whoa! Still very early in the season, but SEC currently has 5 teams in the RPI Top 11 ... 2. TA&M, 3. Missouri, 7. Arkansas, 9 Alabama, 11. Kentucky ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934918816487833601

* Hogs' D came to play today, holding UConn to 37.7% FGs (incl only 26.9% from 3) & owning the glass, 42-26 ... on O (aside from a few stretches) the Hogs moved & shared the ball well which led to 60.0% FGs (incl 57.9% from 3 on 11-of-19 shooting) ... UA simply dominated this gm!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934935209430126592

* Hog senior guard @Jbarford1 continues to play like an early SEC POY candidate (24 pts on 9-of-12 FGs incl 4-of-5 from 3 & 2-of-2 FTs), 4 rbs, 3 asts; senior guard @Daryl4Macon bounced back from injury nicely w/16 pts (5-of-9 FGs incl 2-of-4 from 3), 3 rbs, 2 asts, 1 stl ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934940000608768000

* Best thing about Macon's injury was the mins it bought soph @Cj_jones2 at PK80 ... CJ w/19 pts today (5-of-8 FGs incl 3-of-6 from 3 and 6-of-6 FTs) in 21 mins ... CJ's catch-&-shoot game is perfect complement to a dribble-drive-dominant backcourt ... CJ avg. 11.0 pts at PK80!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934941629856829440

* Hogs' freshmen impress! @Dan_G33 didn't have his best gm, but 9 pts (3 dunks & 3 FTs) & 5 rbs in 14 mins were efficient. Forward @bigdayday4 looked comfortable & was productive = 7 pts (3-of-3 FGs), tm-high 6 rbs, & drew 2 off fouls on UConn! @GO22_LT 3 rb, 1 ast, 1 stl in 8 min.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934943731949756421

* For the 2nd time in 3 gms at PK80, the Hogs' combo-4 duo of sophomore starter @adriobailey & senior reserve @YehThatsMe_DT13 combined for an efficient, productive gm = 39 mins, 15 pts (5-of-9 FGs & 5-of-7 FTs), 8 rbs, 2 stls, and 1 blk ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/934944740088471552

* Hog senior guard @Jbarford1 named to 5-player PK80 Invitational Victory bracket all-tournament team!

Razorback Rewind: Houston (I was covering HS basketball and did not see this game in its entirety, so the RR this week is limited to 3 tweets ... probably for the best given the beatdown and not much to say other than burn the game tape and move on!) ...

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (5-2) did nothing right on the road Sat & Houston could do no wrong, rolling to a 91-65 W! Arkansas, which came into the gm with RPI ranking of No. 11, is currently RPI No. 13 ... next up on Tues is Colorado St (4-4), which just upset RPI Top 50 Colorado!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/937509771867017219

* Razorback Rewind: None of the pre-gm keys worked in Hogs' favor as UH punched UA in the mouth early & continued the beatdown! Only 7 asts & 34.5% on 55 shot attempts was dreadful, as was losing rbs (38-29) & yielding 51.8% FGs to Cougars! Bright spot? Only 1 gm w/24 more to go!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/937513120834220033

* Razorback Rewind: Head Hog @MikeAndersonUA announced that senior forward Arlando Cook's legal matters have been resolved and he's been fully reinstated to the team, meaning he can play in games now. He dressed but did not play at Houston.

Razorback Rewind: Colorado State

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (6-2, RPI No. 18, BPI No. 35) started like they did in Houston but finished like the tm that dismantled UConn, racking up 19-5 advantage in turnovers while having 22 asts on 35-of-67 FGs (52.2%) en route to a runaway W vs Colorado St, 92-66, on Tues at BWA!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/938458867763003392

* Razorback Rewind: Other than losing rebs (38-31), Hogs dominated -- Pts in paint 38-20, pts off TOs 27-6, fast-break pts 16-7, bench scoring 47-17. Hogs' physicality, quickness, numerous deflections, and overall disruptiveness on defense held Rams to 36.5% FGs & only 8 asts ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/938459854477430784

* Razorback Rewind: UA got back to sharing/moving the ball (& running O thru the bigs) & it paid off! After falling behind 13-2, the youth movement took over! Sophomore @Cj_jones2 (19 pts) & freshmen @Dan_G33 (14 pts, 6 rbs, 2 blks,1  stl) @bigdayday4 (8 pts, 3 rbs) led 19-0 run!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/938462334602956808

* .@Cj_jones2 has stepped up last 4 gms (UNC, UConn, Houston, ColoSt), scoring in double-figures each time (15.3 in that span) ... on the season, CJ is one of 5 Hogs avg double-figures = 10.8 pts (50.0% FGs incl 40.5% from 3), plus 2.3 rbs in 19.6 mins per gm. Catch-&-shoot weapon!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/938463247056932864

* Mostly catch-&-shoot, although he does have a nice ball-fake-&-one-dribble set-up for that sweet J. He's perfect complement & change-up to Hogs' stable of dribble-drivers, but the more complexity & counters he adds to his dribble-drive gm, the scarier he'll be as a shooter/scorer

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/938466710637735941

* Razorback Rewind: Senior guards @Jbarford1 @Daryl4Macon @antonbeard31 did a great job setting up others & taking care of the rock, combining for 12 asts & only 2 TOs! Barford w/19 pts, 5 rbs, 3 ast; Macon w/gm-high 7 asts plus 8 pts, 2 stls; & Beard w/9 pts, 3 rbs, 2 asts, 2 stls

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/938468845936893952

* Razorback Rewind: Steady performance by Hogs' two senior combo-4s as @YehThatsMe_DT13 got his 1st start of the season and contributed 6 pts, 2 rbs, 2 asts in 16 mins, while @_____ballxbooks saw his 1st action of the season & chipped in 4 rbs, 2 asts, 1 stl in 15 mins ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/938469697846239233

* Unsung contributions from @YehThatsMe_DT13 in his 5 gms since rejoining Hogs: tough rebounder down stretch in Hogs' best W vs OU, Hogs' 2nd-leading reb by avg (5.0), best mid-range shooter & passer among UA's 4s (did great job last nite feeding inside to Gafford & Thompson) ...

Razorback Rewind: No. 14 Minnesota

* Razorback Rewind: Arkansas (7-2, RPI No. 9, BPI No. 31) jumped on No. 14 Minnesota early and led throughout in a 95-79 win that looked more decisive than the final score indicates. Hogs beat their 1st ranked opponent of the season, & they're now 2-1 vs RPI Top 50 (UNC, OU, MN)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939905726763487232

* One of my pre-game keys was that the Hogs had to compete inside against the Gophers' ultra-productive frontline. Mission accomplished! MN won boards (39-33), but Hogs won points-in-paint (46-38) & 2nd-chance-pts (15-11) ... Hogs also won bench war (29-13)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939911467129868288

* In the non-conference? Yes. CMA's Hogs had wins over highly ranked Kentucky and Florida a few seasons ago, & last time his Hogs beat ranked non-conference tm at home was Michigan back in his 1st season (2011-12) ... tough getting high-majors to play at BWA! CMA now 100-15 at BWA!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939909661846921216

* Razorback Rewind: After collapse at Houston that saw sub-40% FGs & only 7 asts, Hogs have had back-to-back gms (ColoSt & MN) of sharing & moving the ball, which has led to consecutive 20-plus-assist gms & well-over 50% FG shooting! Senior guard @Daryl4Macon w/15 asts last 2 gms!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939912591069122560

* Hogs' D limited a good Gophers offense to just 41.0% FG shooting, including only 36.7% in the 2nd half when freshman @Dan_G33 erased 5 MN attempts! Hogs only forced 10 turnovers all gm, but 5 steals, 9 blocked shots, plus the ball-pressure & deflections all took a toll on MN!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939914503067717632

* Razorback Rewind: UA came in w/5 players avg double-figures, & all 5 hit the mark on Sat! Senior G @Jbarford1 is playing like all SEC 1st-tm, & I'd argue early candidate for SEC POY: 22 pts (9-15 FGs), 4 rb, 4 ast, 1 blk ... JB avg 19.9 p (50.8% FG incl 45.5% on 3s), 4.1 r, 3.2 a

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939916534977310720

* Senior G @Daryl4Macon is Hogs' most-versatile backcourt player, capable of going off for 30 any night & just as capable of being chief facilitator (see 15 dimes last 2 gms!). He had 12 pts, 8 asts, 2 stls, 2 rbs v MN. Senior G @antonbeard31 w/solid floor gm = 10 pts, 6 ast, 3 rbs

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939918065126510592

* Freshman phenom! @Dan_G33 -- 6-11 w/7-2 wingspan, & oh yeah, he plays on a pogo stick w/unlimited quick, big hops off the floor -- continues to be productive while providing breath-taking, 1-&-done looking plays! 16 pts (perfect 8-8 FGs), 7 rbs, 6 blk (5 in 2nd half), in 21 mins!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939924170607071232

* Making his 1st career start against a Top 15 tm that boasts arguably the most productive frontline in college hoops, @Dan_G33 more than held his own! MN bigs could not stop him offensively, & on D (especially late in the gm when Gophers tried to spark run) Dan got the eraser out!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939926961522135040

* Right now, I'd say no Dan's not a 1-&-done. Ask me again in March and I might have a different answer!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939926265171271683

* Razorback Rewind: Sophomore SG @Cj_jones2 continues to shine off the bench! He's instant offense, & it's worth repeating that his quick-rise-&-release / catch-&-shoot game is great change-of-pace complement to Hogs' stable of dribble-drive guards! 15 pts (5-7 from 3) in 15 mins!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/939929331794661376

* Hogs got more solid production-by-committee at the combo-4 spot: @YehThatsMe_DT13 @adriobailey @_____ballxbooks combined for 40 mins, 16 pts (7-12 FGs & 2-2 FTs), 6 rbs, 2 asts, 1 stl. Senior F @T_Top24 (2 pts, 6 rbs, 2 blks, 2 stls, 2 asts) had positive impact, especially late!

Razorback Rewind: Troy

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (8-2, RPI No. 10) continued their dominance in games played inside the borders of Arkansas, running Troy out of the gym by halftime en route to an 88-63 win Saturday in front of a sellout crowd (16,416 fans) at Verizon Arena in North Little Rock!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/942437625604050944

* Not only has Arkansas won by an average margin of 23.7 pts in its 6 games played in Arkansas (5-0 at BWA in Fayetteville, 1-0 at Verizon Arena in NLR), but the Hogs have led at halftime in each game and the average margin of halftime lead is 18.3 pts ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/942439119308935173

* Paint the town Red! Hog fans started showing up 2+ hours early to see their team play in Central Arkansas, & the announced estimated actual attendance of 16,416 was 2nd largest crowd to ever watch a basketball game in the 501! Hogs had 34,000 fans combined last 2 gms (MN & Troy)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/942441715604119553

* Razorback Rewind: Senior guard & LRParkview alum @Daryl4Macon played for the last time in Central Arkansas as a Hog, and he went out with a bang! #MaconBuckets had game-highs of 25 pts (8-of-14 FGs incl 5-of-9 from 3 and 4-of-4 FTs), 5 assists, and 3 steals, plus he had 3 rebs!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/942442435136970752

* Senior guard & LRParkview/NLR baller @antonbeard31 also had a nice farewell to Central Arkansas as a Hog, finishing w/11 pts, 2 rbs, 2 asts, 1 stl. Senior G @Jbarford1 came in avg nearly 20 pts per gm, & tho he finished w/just 7 pts after an off-shooting nite, he had 7 rbs, 5 ast

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/942445041984921600

* Razorback Rewind: Freshman @Dan_G33 continued to be efficient and productive, finishing w/10 pts (4-of-6 FGs and 2-of-6 FTs), 6 rbs, 3 blks, 1 ast in 24 mins; 501 ballers & freshmen Hogs @bigdayday4 (4 pts, 4 rbs, 1 blk) @GO22_LT (2 pts, 2 rbs, 1 ast) played well, too.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/942446446774837248

* Frontline balance! In addition to Gafford's 10-6-3 nite, Hogs got 10 pts (5-of-8 FGs incl 3 dunks), 6 rbs, 2 asts, 1 blk from bouncy sophomore F @adriobailey, while senior F @T_Top24 had 8 pts (perfect 3-3 FGs & 2-2 FTs), 3 rbs, 2 blks, 1 stl, 1 ast in just 14 mins!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/942447328463589376

* Arkansas's dominance over Troy showed up everywhere in the final boxscore: Hogs won glass (42-35), asts (19-9), TOs (10-6), pts-in-paint (50-16), pts-off-TOs (17-7), fast-break (19-2), bench (33-12), FG shooting (53.1% to 30.5%)!

Razorback Rewind: Oral Roberts

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (9-2, RPI No. 13, BPI No. 21, ESPN Power Rankings No. 22, CBS Sports No. 25) crushed another opponent at home, this time the victim was Oral Roberts to the tune of 104-69 on Tuesday at BWA as Arkansas reached the century mark for the 3rd time this season!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/943534786014076935

* Inside Arkansas borders, Hogs have played 7 gms so far (6-0 at BWA & 1-0 at Verizon Arena), and the avg margin of victory is 25.3 pts (avg margin of haltime lead is 19.9 pts) ... Hogs w/their 4th straight game of less than 10 TOs, & they've had 91 asts to 29 TOs in that span!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/943537987039703040

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs forced 27 ORU TOs while committing only 9 ... Hogs had 27 asts on impressive 41-of-69 FGs (59.4%), incl red-hot 14-of-25 from 3 (56.0%) ... Hogs lost glass (34-25), but dominated pts-off-TOs (42-9), fast-break-pts (26-6), bench (42-11), stls/blks (21-6)

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/943541371763347456

* Since the 7-ast, sub-40% shooting night in Houston, Arkansas has had it best stretch in these last 4 gms of sharing/moving the basketball which has led to more open looks and cleaner driving lanes. Defensively, Arkansas continues to mount 40+ deflections per gm and force TOs ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/943542410226950144

* Razorback Rewind: Senior G @Jbarford1 bounced back nicely from off-shooting nite vs Troy, scoring tm-high 18 pts on 8-9 FGs (incl 2-2 from 3) plus 5 stl, 4 ast, 3 rbs. Seniors @Daryl4Macon (14 pts, 3 rbs, 3 ast, 1 stl, 1 blk) @antonbeard31 (14 pts, 4 rb, 4 ast, 2 stl) were sharp!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/943545281479667712

* Razorback Rewind: Freshmen @Dan_G33 (12 pts, 4 rbs, 4 asts, 2 blks in 22 mins) & @bigdayday4 (career-high 11 pts, plus 3 rbs, 3 asts, 2 stls in 15 mins) combined for 5 dunks! Sophomore SG @Cj_jones2 continues to be big impact = 15 pts (5-8 from 3), 2 rbs, 2 ast, 2 blks in 15 mins

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/943547357756575745

* UA got another efficient, productive gm from its frontline-by-committee: starter @YehThatsMe_DT13 plus 2nd-unit @T_Top24 @adriobailey @_____ballxbooks combined for 18 pts (9-17 FGs), 6 rbs, 7 asts, 4 stls, 2 blks in 57 mins ... Cook (6 pts on 3-5 FGs) had his best gm this season!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/943548994810253312

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs have had some fan-fave walk-ons over the yrs (Eugene Nash, Scott Rose, Ernie Murry, Chris Walker, Kikko Haydar, Manny Watkins come to mind), & soph G Jonathan Holmes looks to be the next! His floater last nite means he's scored in all 6 gms he's played in!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/943552243416084480

* In 6 games off the bench, Jonathan "Johnny Squad" Holmes is averaging 2.2 pts (a 700-plus-% increase from his freshman avg) while shooting a respectable 45.5% FGs (incl 40% from 3). The 5-10 combo guard from Columbia, IL, is also chipping in 0.3 rbs, 0.2 asts, 0.2 stl per outing!

Squad is averaging around a point every minute, so his per-40 scoring average is close to 40 ppg. Maybe we should leave him out there, haha.

Razorback Rewind: Cal St Bakersfield

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (10-2, RPI No. 14) overcame some first-half stumbles en route to a convincing 95-68 win over Cal St Bakersfield in front of 11,327 fans at BWA on Wed ... it was UA's 8th gm scoring 90+ pts this season and 7th game w/20+ points margin of victory!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/946416737649594368

* Hogs (projected as a 6-seed if the season ended today according to @ESPNLunardi most-recent Bracketology update) are averaging 90.0 pts per gm, & the last time they averaged at least 90 pts per game was the 1993-94 national championship season when they scored 93.4 pts per outing!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/946422536316817408

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs had 5 in double figure scoring in the win over CSU Bakersfield: @Jbarford1 19 pts @Daryl4Macon 16 pts @antonbeard31 15 pts @bigdayday4 career-high 14 pts @YehThatsMe_DT13 10 pts ... freshman F/C @Dan_G33 w/career-high 12 rbs to go w/6 pts, 2 stls, & 1 blk!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/946458505900380160

* Not only did senior guard @Daryl4Macon register 16 pts (4-of-6 FGs incl 2-of-4 from 3 and 6-of-8 FTs), 3 rbs, & 2 stls, but he tied his season-high of 8 asts last nite! #MaconBuckets has 31 asts & only 3 turnovers in the past 5 gms -- that's a 6.2-to-0.6 assist-to-turnover ratio!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/946459954587885568

* On the season, @Daryl4Macon leads Hogs w/ 4.2 asts per game, & combined w/his 1.4 turnovers per game, his 3-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio is the best on the team. Macon has not committed a turnover in the past 3 games, and UA has had fewer than 10 TOs each of the past 5 games!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/946462443882078208

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs won most of the battles during their 95-68 thrashing of CSU Bakersfield on Wed = boards (47-36), turnovers (17-9), pts-off-TOs (24-9), pts-in-the-paint (40-22), 2nd-chance pts (23-16), asts (15-13), fast-break pts (9-8), & bench scoring (29-28)

Razorback Rewind: No. 19 Tennessee

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (11-2, 1-0 SEC, RPI No. 6) fell behind early & didn't lead until final minute of regulation on @Dan_G33's rim-run smash, then ran out to an 11-pt lead in OT before holding off No. 19 Tennessee, 95-93, in front of 18,696 fans at Bud Walton Arena on Saturday!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947502136811761670

* Vols were tough defensively, effective from 3 (11-of-25 for 44%), they were good off the bounce and in transition, and they always had an answer for a Hogs' rally ... UNTIL the final 3:53 of regulation and OT when Arkansas put the hammer down with a decisive 28-6 run!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947505680071700485

* Hogs lost rebs (41-34), but won pts-in-paint (38-30) & stayed even on 2nd-chance-pts (11 each). Hogs barely won TOs (14-12) thanks to some late wear-&-tear that finally caught up w/Vols, but UA nearly doubled up pts-off-TOs (18-10). Crazy stat: Vols dominated bench scoring (33-5)

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947506924211392512

* Razorback Rewind: As good as TN's ballers were (5 Vols in double figures), Hogs' trio of @Daryl4Macon @Jbarford1 @Dan_G33 was simply better. Their stats alone R eye-popping, but the gutsy/gritty plays they made late turned the gm into 1 of the most memorable finishes ever in BWA!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947509501682421762

* During my Thurs hoops segment on @1037TheBuzz, we were talking about @Daryl4Macon's recent facilitator-in-chief role, & I issued reminder that Daryl can go get 30 any time he wants & that he's Hogs' best closer (i.e. ice-water-in-veins at FT line). 2 days later, Daryl delievered!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947512219759202304

* .@Daryl4Macon (career-high 33 pts on 10-18 FGs incl 5-9 from 3 & 8-8 FTs) scored at all 3 levels against very good defensive tm! His play down the stretch was sentilating: Triple late in regulation ignited 10-1 run to get to OT, then he went 3-3 FGs & 6-6 FTs in OT for 13 pts!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947515903176044545

* .@Jbarford1 continues to play like 1st-team All SEC & should be in the mid-season conversation for SEC POY! Like Macon, he scored at all 3 levels throughout -- 28 pts on 10-18 FGs & 7-8 FTs to go w/5 rbs & tm-highs in asts (4) and stls (2) ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947518674688184321

* .@Jbarford1's impact in turning the game was felt everywhere = D rb-then-ast on Macon's 3 that cut TN lead to 70-65, then he stole ensuing inbounds pass leading to Gafford putback (70-67), then 2 FTs (72-69) & layup (72-71), then 4 pts, 1 stl, 1 rb, 1 ast to help fuel 16-5 OT run

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947522744312369152

* Freshman @Dan_G33 was up to big-stage challenges vs now-No. 12 OU (13 pts, 8 rbs, 1 blk) & then-No. 14 MN (16 pts, 7 rbs, 6 blks), but he took it to another level against No. 19 Tennessee, playing season-high 33 mins for 15 pts (6-8 FGs & 3-9 FTs) & gm-highs in rbs w/8 & blks w/5

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947524994342539264

* What stood out was @Dan_G33 adjusting to 1st-half struggles dealing w/Grant Williams' & Kyle Alexander's strength & experience, because in 2nd half he not only avoided fouls/stayed on floor, but he took over at both ends in game-critical situations while helping foul those 2 out!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947527223329935360

* .@Dan_G33 literally evolved IN-GAME and took the fight to the Vols late, owning big moments in the paint offensively, gobbling up D & O rebs, blocking & altering shots ... and then there was THE DUNK! Whoa, how many frosh bigs in that situation have the onions to drive-&-smash?!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947528888527347712

* Lotta comparisons to '93-94 title tm, but this GAME reminded me of '91-92 OT W vs Shaq & LSU at Barnhill in Hogs' 1st SEC season = uphill climb all gm B4 forcing OT & Dick Vitale hyper-praising Day, Mayberry, Miller w/"U can't check them!" ... a la Macon, Barford, Gafford on Sat!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947535751205580801

* Razorback Rewind: UA's combo-4 spot often flies under the radar, but both seniors -- @YehThatsMe_DT13 (before fouling out) & @_____ballxbooks (down the stretch of regulation & then in OT -- had positive impacts, combining for 5 pts & 9 rbs while winning some tuff, big-boy scrums!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/947539190803255298

* Razorback Rewind: I shot this video walking up to BWA a few minutes before the doors opened at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday ... these fans and the rest of the 18,696 in attendance were rewarded with one of the best games (and finishes) ever at the Basketball Palace of Mid-America ...

Razorback Rewind: Mississippi State

* Razorback Rewind: No. 22 Hogs (11-3, 1-1 SEC, RPI No. 9) fell 78-75 at Mississppi St on Tues, one day after breaking into AP Top 25 for the 1st time in '17-18! Brothers Quinndary & Nick Weatherspoon combined for 44 pts, 11 rbs, 5 stls, 4 ast, 3 blks as MSU won 3rd straight vs UA!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/948709180256522240

* Arkansas committed 26 fouls that led to 40 FT attempts for MSSt, while shooting only 5-of-12 FTs resulting from 11 fouls that were whistled against the 'Dogs. UA lost turnovers (13-7) & pts-off-TOs (19-9). Rebounds were even at 39 apiece, but MSSt won 2nd-chance-pts (16-9) ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/948711697510027264

* Hogs' decision-making and execution were poor in the last few possessions against a young MSSt team (13-1, 1-0 SEC) that had not previously matched up with an RPI Top 50 opponent, & had faced only one in RPI Top 100 (No. 54 Cincinnati, a road game the 'Dogs lost by 15 pts) ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/948716295310270465

* Razorback Rewind: SEC Player of the Week @Daryl4Macon continued his torrid shooting, making 9-of-12 FGs incl 5-of-7 from 3 for a game-high 24 pts ... as a team, Arkansas shot a robust 51.6% on the road, incl a blistering 64.5% in the 2nd half.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/948718050072760320

* Senior G @Jbarford1 had 11 pts (4-15 FGs incl 0-6 from 3 & 3-4 FTs), and he had team-highs in rebs (7) & asts (5) ... freshman @Dan_G33 w/17 pts (8-11 FGs & 1-3 FTs), 5 rbs, 2 asts, 1 blk ... soph F @adriobailey was a spark off the bench w/10 pts (5-7 FGs & 0-2 FTs), 6 rbs, 1 stl

Razorback Rewind: Auburn

* Razorback Rewind: For the 2nd straight road gm, No. 22 Hogs (11-4, 1-2 SEC, RPI No. 18) had their chances in last 5 mins but could not get out of their own way, this time falling 88-77 at Auburn (14-1, 2-0 SEC, RPI No. 11) ... Hogs begin league play 1-2 for 2nd straight season!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/950152170191708160

* Hogs won the boards (35-30) and 2nd-chance-pts (9-4), but 2 late putbacks by Auburn were piled onto the Hogs' problems in other areas that the Tigers won = turnovers (11-9), pts-off-turnovers (16-9), FTs (17-of-22 for 77.3% to Hogs' 13-of-19 for 68.4%), & bench pts (24-23) ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/950153950526885888

* Razorback Rewind: Although Hogs uncharacteristically lost bench scoring matchup for 3rd straight game, they did get overall solid production from the bench led by freshman @bigdayday4 (7 pts on 3-3 FGs, tied-for-tm-high 6 rbs) & senior @T_Top24 (8 pts, tied-for-tm-high 6 rbs).

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/950155357481046018

* In fact, aside from @Jbarford1's offensive explosion (19 of his 21 pts came in 2nd half), it seemed @bigdayday4 had the biggest imact at both ends of the floor as Hogs chipped away at 21-pt deficit to pull within 7 w/5:07 left in the gm. DayDay injected energy, length, toughness!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/950157067918159873

* Dan Gafford is either 1-&-done or 2-&-done, right now I lean toward the latter but that could change. CMA teams typically play their best Bball in the final 3rd of the season (last 10 gms), so I believe we'll see this tm improve & earn 3rd NCAAT at-large bid in last 4 seasons ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/950160284248879104

* Disagree. Dan has 1-&-done size, length, physical & athletic attributes -- none of which Scotty possessed as an NBA prospect. Agree Dan's best bet is to return cuz he's already being projected as a lottery pick in 2019 draft, but we'll see if he gets 1st-round draft grade for '18

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/950165474016407552

* Hog freshman @Dan_G33's NBA draft status update: Dan has moved up to No. 34 (from No. 38) on http://NBAdraft.net 's Top 100 Big Board, and though he's still not projected 1st or 2nd round in 2018 NBA Draft, he has moved up the lottery ladder to No. 9 in 2019 (up from No. 12)!

* Razorback Rewind: LSU (I did not tweet next-day info on this game, so included here were my tweets during and after the game)

* Apparently Hogs content taking quick, 1-on-5 shots ... ZERO ball movement and awful shot selection, while LSU is dissecting Hogs' D at other end ... LSU leads 14-5.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/951276120816701441

* Last season, Arkansas came back home after starting 1-2 and laid an egg in BWA against a not-very-good MSSt team, falling to 1-3 ... this LSU game has started in eerily similar fashion ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/951278489474338817

* Absolutely NO excuse for that performance in the 1st half by Arkansas, down 41-21 to LSU at halftime ... coming off an 0-2 road swing and this is the response? Starts at the top and trickles down ... this one's on CMA and everybody down the line is accountable for it, too!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/951287662303948800

* From top to bottom, they're all to blame. Like I said, it starts w/CMA & all the way down the line this team has to own this hot mess on the floor tonite. One half of one game, but 1-3 SEC start seems inevitable (just like this time last yr). Lots of hoops left, we shall see ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/951290296461119488

* Hogs were outcoached, outworked, outplayed = 3 strikes & you're out! LSU 75, Arkansas 54 ... Hogs fall to 11-5 overall, 1-3 SEC, and their RPI dropped to No. 24 ... UA starts league play 1-3 for second consecutive season ... of Hogs' 5 losses, 4 have been by double-digit margins!

Razorback Rewind: Missouri

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (12-5, 2-3 SEC, RPI No. 21) snapped 3-game losing skid w/65-63 come-from-behind win over Missouri (12-5, 2-2 SEC) on Sat at BWA! UA built 18-pt 1st-half lead, fell behind by 6 pts in final 5 mins, then prevailed behind tuff D & Macon-Gafford pick-&-roll O!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/952969985734868993

* Arkansas is now 2-2 against the RPI Top 15 (Ws over No. 2 OU and No. 13 Tennessee, Ls vs. No. 5 NoCarolina and 6 Auburn) ... Hogs are now 5-5 against RPI Top 100 (incls Ws vs No. 35 Missouri, No. 77 UConn, No. 84 Minnesota, and Ls vs No. 49 Houston, No. 65 LSU, No. 75 MSSt ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/952973786328043520

* Razorback Rewind: 3-headed MVP for Hogs on Sat = freshman @bigdayday4 made 1st career start & helped UA to 28-10 lead, scoring 10 pts (4-4 FGs) w/5 rbs & 2 stls; @Daryl4Macon (8 pts, 8 asts, 6 rbs, 1 stl) & @Dan_G33 (15 pts, 6 rbs, 1 blk) closed the show w/unstoppable 2-man game!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/952980251658866688

* Sr G @Daryl4Macon (playing off bench for 1st time since his junior season) turned in 1 of the grittiest performaces of the season, hitting a triple for 10-7 UA lead that swelled to 28-10, grabbing tm-high 6 rbs, & handing out half his 8 asts late when UA had to fight from behind!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/952982342263558145

* As UA moves into heart of SEC play, expect increased roles from both freshmen @Dan_G33 @bigdayday4! DayDay continues to play tuff D, attack glass, & he was big reason UA won pts-in-paint 34-14 (all 4 FGs were at the cup). And U saw what Danimal Jam did to the rim late to stamp W!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/952985981296238592

* Razorback Rewind: Two unsung contributors were forwards @YehThatsMe_DT13 @T_Top24 ... both helped Arkansas establish interior play that led to a 34-14 pts-in-paint advantage, combining for 37 mins, 8 pts (all as a result of attacking the basket), 5 rbs, 3 stls, 2 asts.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/952990998363295746

* Hogs' offense has been sputtering since start of league play. Arkansas was top scoring SEC team just a few weeks ago at 90 pts per game, but in the 4 gms since the TN game that went to OT, Hogs high-pt game was 77 in L at Auburn, and they've avg just 59.5 pts vs LSU & Mizzou ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/952992393275625482

* According to his updated Bracketology today, @ESPNLunardi projects Hogs as a 7-seed in the NCAAT ... he has 8 SEC teams in the Dance if the season ended today, with 2 more on the Bubble and just outside the 68-team field!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/952995161671458819

Razorback Rewind: Couldn't get this Hogs-v-Mizzou pre-game reel to tweet out on Saturday, but here you can see the Hogs having some above-the-rim fun about a half hour before tip against the Tigers ...

Razorback Rewind: Florida


* Razorback Rewind: Arkansas (12-6, 2-4 SEC, RPI No. 25) lost for the 4th time last night in its past 5 games, 88-73, at Florida (13-5, 5-1 SEC, RPI No. 36) ... Hogs dropped their 8th consecutive game against the Gators, and they're still without a win in Gainesville since 1995!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954139071617687552

* Of the Hogs' 6 total losses, 5 have been by double-digits & 4 have been by at least 15 pts ... Hogs are 0-4 in true road games this season ... Hogs continue to struggle making FTs (only 6-of-15 for 40% against Florida) and defending the 3-point line (Gators shot 13-of-25 for 52%)

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954140229371383808

* Razorback Rewind: Hog freshmen @Dan_G33 & @bigdayday4 continue to impress w/effort and energy at both ends of the floor! Gafford recorded the 1st double-double of his collegiate career w/14 pts, 10 rbs, 1 blk in 25 mins. DayDay had 4 pts and 2 rbs in 18 mins!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954142825574273024

The following were questions/responses to my Razorback Rewind tweets ...

* Not good right, I'm worried, tell me why I shouldn't be.

* CMA teams play their best basketball in final 1/3rd of season ... UA has quality neutral-site W over Top 10 OU, 16-pt home W over then-No. 14 MN when Gophers were at full strength, & quality SEC wins over ranked TN & RPI Top 35 Missouri ... 8 SEC tms currently projected NCAAT ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954144492256456704

* Can't bank on that every year

* Who said bank it? Simply pointed out historical & current-season positives that MIGHT be reasons to have hope for turnaround. UA started 1-3 SEC last yr, lost big at home to MSSt & Vandy, but managed to finish strong. '14-15 team also played its best last 10 gms. Lotta hoops left

Razorback Rewind: Ole Miss (won't have time to do this tomorrow like I normally do, so putting my post-game tweets on here tonight ... will include some post-gm Q&A with fans on Twitter and some tweets with pics of Arkansas Hawks players who attended the game today)

* Sr guards @Jbarford1 (23 pts, 5 rbs, 4 asts, 3 stls) & @Daryl4Macon (20 pts incl 11-12 FTs, of which 7-8 came late, plus tm-high 6 asts) helped Hogs survive Ole Miss, 97-93, today at BWA ... UA (13-6, 3-4 SEC, RPI No. 24) has won its 3 SEC gms (all at home) by avg margin 2.7 pts!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954848120885653506

* Arkansas shot 54.7% from the field (29-of-53), incl 50% from 3 (11-of-22), and the Hogs got off to a good defesnive start, but unforced turnovers, getting doubled up in 2nd-chance pts, & a late 3-pt barage from Ole Miss all conspired for another SEC nail-biter in BWA!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954848904708804608

* Arkansas finally scored the ball in league play ... after hitting 95 pts in an OT win over ranked TN in their SEC opener back in December, Hogs did not score more than 77 pts in an SEC gm in their next 5 outings ... today's 97 pts is UA's 10th gm with 90 or more pts on the season

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954866476279894016

* Freshmen @Dan_G33 (1 reb shy of his 2nd consecutive double-double, finishing w/15 pts, 9 rbs, 3 blks) & @bigdayday4 (2nd career start, finishing w/SEC career-high 11 pts incl 8-8 FTs to go w/3 rbs) are the Hogs' best tandem defensively & on the glass! Need to see MORE of these 2!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954850243732000770

* When @Dan_G33 flew in for that holy sh*t putback smash down the stretch at a time when Ole Miss had clawed back into the gm, I thought he was going to tear the rim off or pull down the basket ... it was straight-up nasty! In addition to his 15 pts, 9 rbs, 3 blks, Dan had 3 stls

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954862738295189504

* Thought senior guard  @antonbeard31 had his best gm as a facilitator in some time = nice post-entry passes to help get Gafford going plus some nice drive-&-dish situations for a total of 5 asts ... sophomore guard @Cj_jones2 thawing out, hit 4-7 FGs (incl 3-5 from 3) for 11 pts!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954852353483706368

* UA bench (fueled by @Daryl4Macon @Cj_jones2 @_____ballxbooks) got back to its dominant ways, outscoring OM's bench 39-12 ... Hogs also looked more like last yr's team at FT line, knocking down 28-of-35 for 80.0% (about 15% better than season %) ... OM owned 2nd-chance-pts, 22-11.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954859242808315911

* Hogs-vs-OM notebook: UA continues to try new things at combo-4 spot, w/@adriobailey starting & @_____ballxbooks producing off the bench, while Dustin Thomas was DNP ... UA has won 2 in a row at BWA vs OM, which has won 5 of last 8 gms there ... Hogs next 3 SEC gms are on the road

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954861289708367872

Okay, here was some Twitter Q&A after the game with some Hog fans ...

* Q: Again didnít get to see much of the game but the little I did it just seemed like they trusted each other more today offensively. Hall is contributing in many areas.  He isnít just a warm body out there.

* A: Hall's the best on-ball defender on the team, tops in stls-per-min, and 2nd-best per-minute rebounder next to Gafford ... in his 2 starts, Hall really helped set tone early on D & his 9.5 pt avg in 1st halves helped UA build 18-pt lead against Missouri & 16-pt lead against OM ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954857359771303937

* Q: @ARHoopScoop i asked u at the beginning of season how long u thought Daniel would be a hog ur answer if i remember correctly was more than likely 2 yrs but maybe 1 yr. Now what do u think?

* A: At this time, I'd say it's 50/50 ... my opinion and nothing more than that ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954864736327426048

* Q: Kevin, question I have is why didn't Cook play more down the stretch. He was playing well had some nice production on offense too. OM seemed to close the gap once he went out.

* A: Hogs gave up a lot of 2nd-chance pts in 2nd half, and I just think CMA was trying to rotate him, Bailey, and Trey to stop the OM assault on the offensive glass, but nothing seemed to work ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954865213387534336

Finally, here were 2 of my tweets with names and pics of the Arkansas Hawks players who attended the game, including '18 Hog signee Isaiah Joe ...

* Take a look at the ARHawks hoopers who were at BWA today to see Hogs-v-OM! From L to R ... '20 @Jay_MWilliams_ & '21 ballers @Jacob_joe24 @_jayy4 @RMaxJr10 @TerranWilliams1 @Madisonpeaster1 @emcraehoops

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/954863764599435267

* Future Hog & ARHawk @Isaiah_joe10 in the middle, and '21 ARHawks (from left to right) @Jacob_joe24 @emcraehoops @TerranWilliams1 @RMaxJr10 we're on hand today to see Arkansas defeat Ole Miss, 97-93, along with 18,000-plus fans ...

Razorback Rewind: Georgia

* Razorback Rewind: Arkansas (14-6, 4-4 SEC, RPI No. 23) overcame 16-pt deficit to defeat Georgia, 80-77 in 2 OTs, notching the Hogs' first true road win of the season & evening their league record after a 1-3 start! Hogs are 2-2 vs RPI Nos. 1-15, 2-2 vs Nos. 26-75, & 3-2 vs 76-100

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/956211103255719936

* UA has won back-to-back games for the 1st time since December, and improved to 3-5 in games played outside of Arkansas ... Hogs host OKSt on Sat as part of Big XII/SEC Challenge, then go back on the road for 2 SEC games against TA&M & LSU ... Hogs close last 8 gms w/5 at BWA!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/956213169743114240

* Senior guard @Jbarford1 celebrated his birthday w/24 pts to help UA climb out of that 16-pt hole for a chance to win, then senior guard @Daryl4Macon kept the party rockin' w/25 pts -- all in the 2nd half & 2 OTs, including Arkansas's final 16 pts covering both extra periods ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/956216657072009221

* Razorback Rewind: Contributions from Hogs trio of seniors @antonbeard31 @T_Top24 @YehThatsMe_DT13 were vital to forging UA's 1st road W! Beard w/tm-high 4 asts to go w/8 pts (incl pull-up J to help send gm to OT); Thompson's last-second blk of Yante Maten sealed W; Thomas w/8 pts

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/956222614195884033

* Last 2 games (both Hog Ws), @antonbeard31 totaled 9 asts & only 2 turnovers, showing good feel for finding creases in D to penetrate, draw help defenders, then dish to teammates for clean looks. Thompson's been playing well for several gms, came up big in physical test vs Georgia

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/956225577324810240

* Razorback Rewind: Another impressive showing by frosh @bigdayday4 (7 pts on 3-5 FGs incl 1-1 from 3 to go w/3 rbs in 23 mins). DayDay made his 3rd career start (all in last 4 gms), & Hogs are 3-0 w/him in starting lineup! Last 6 gms, he's avg 7.3 pts (51.9% FGs, 70% FTs) & 4.0 rb

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/956233021388214272

* Hogs-v-Dawgs notebook:

   -- Incl the 16 pts he totaled in 2 OTs last nite, @Daryl4Macon has scored 29 pts in 3 OT periods this season = almost 2 pts per min = WOW!
   -- Last 2 gms (both UA wins), Hogs combined for 39-49 FTs (79.6%)!
   -- Last 2 gms, Hogs won bench pts by combined 80-31!

Razorback Rewind: Oklahoma State

* Razorback Rewind: Cardiac Hogs (15-6, 4-4 SEC, RPI No. 22) found a way, AGAIN, to scratch out a razor-thin win at BWA, clipping Oklahoma State 66-65 on Saturday in front of 18,057 fans, incl Hog coaching legends Nolan Richardson & Eddie Sutton, as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957671485526732801

* UA has won 3 consecutive gms, & 4 of its last 5! In their last 4 Ws at BWA, Hogs have won by margins of 2, 2, 4, & now 1 pt for avg winning margin of 2.3 pts ... throw in recent road W at GA (3 pts) & U can see Hogs R living on the edge! UA is 10-1 in last 11 one-possession gms!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957673639335354368

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs' bigs come up big! @Dan_G33 scored the game-winning tip-in w/16 seconds left, & for 2nd consecutive game @T_Top24 made the game-sealing play on D (big reb w/2.5 secs left). @YehThatsMe_DT13 just missed a double-double w/9 pts, 10 rbs, 3 stls, 3 asts, 1 blk!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957675733555478529

* Senior @T_Top24 made huge imprint on Hogs' W w/7 pts, 6 rbs, 2 blks, & 2 stls -- most of the D plays came late in the game, similar to his impact in the road W vs GA! After not playing vs Ole Miss 3 gms ago, @YehThatsMe_DT13 avg 8.5 pts, 5.5 rbs, 2.5 stls in Ws over GA & OKSt ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957678505025777664

* Razorback Rewind: UA snapped 5-gm losing skid vs OKSt, a streak covering 46 seasons since Hogs' previous W vs Cowboys! UA avenged last season's 99-71 thrashing by OKSt, also in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. UA now 3-0 vs state of Oklahoma (Ws vs now-No. 12 OU, OKSt, & Oral Roberts)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957680280713613313

* Hogs close non-con play w/11-2 record, incl 4 Ws vs high-major opponents (now-No. 12 OU, UConn, then-No. 14 MN, & OKSt) for the most in a non-con season during @MikeAndersonUA's 6+ campaigns at UA. Hogs R 9-6 vs RPI Top 100 (2-2 vs Nos. 1-15, 3-3 vs Nos 25-75, 4-1 vs Nos. 76-100)

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957684026323677184

* UA now 4-0 when freshman @bigdayday4 starts & senior guard @Daryl4Macon plays off the bench, & once again both impacted the win ... Macon w/gm-high 22 pts ... announced attendance of 18.057 marked 4th time in last 5 gms at BWA that Hogs had more than 18k fans in the house!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957687947574333440

* Credit OKSt's extended match-up zone that pushed Hogs' playmakers out on the floor, leaving middle open where UA struggled to capitalize & leading to poor shooting (39.3% FGs for gm, to go w/55.6% FTs). But UA won TOs, pts-off-TOs, pts-in-paint, 2nd-chance pts, fast-break, bench!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957689172600479746

* Also credit Hogs' 2nd-half D. After giving up 4-6 triples that got OKSt off to fast start & double-digit lead (Cowboys shot 50% FGs in 1st half), UA got stingy in 2nd half, yielding 22.7% FGs (5-22, incl 1-8 from 3) as OKSt did not make FG in final 7:34 of gm! Hogs w/9 stl, 7 blk

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957691161266872320

* Razorback Rewind: @MikeAndersonUA talked about his bench! On bad shooting nite, @Daryl4Macon was 7-13 FGs (incl 4-7 from 3) & 4-4 FTs for 22 pts; @Cj_jones2 was 2-3 from 3 for 6 pts, all coming in Hogs' final push; @_____ballxbooks w/4 pts (incl tip-in for Hogs' 1st lead), 3 rbs!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/957699255728254977

* When combining @Daryl4Macon @Cj_jones2 @_____ballxbooks production w/senior reserve Fs @T_Top24 @YehThatsMe_DT13, Hogs bench scored 48 of the total 66 pts for the gm, had 23 of the total 34 rbs for the game, accounted for 6 of the total 9 blks in the game!

Razorback Rewind: Texas A&M

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (15-7, 4-5 SEC, RPI No. 28) gave up 6 three-pointers in the first 5 mins of the 2nd half, turning a 1-pt halftime deficit against TA&M into a 16-pt mountain that Arkansas could not overcome in an 80-66 SEC road loss last nite ... UA now 1-5 in true road gms

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958742770163871745

* Of the Hogs' defensive struggles this season, defending the 3-point line has been the most glaring issue ... the Aggies shot 10-of-26 from distance for 38.5% (about 6% better than their season numbers coming in) ... 7 of Hogs' 9 SEC opponents have shot 38% or better on 3-pointers

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958744226996604930

* UA had won 3 games in a row (and 4 of its last 5) prior to losing at TA&M last nite ... Hogs can earn road split this week as they travel to play LSU on Saturday to begin the 2nd half of the SEC slate, then 5 of their last 8 games will be at home ... UA is 3-6 away from home ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958745754155323394

* Hogs were beaten soundly on the boards (45-30, incl getting doubled-up on the O glass 16-8) ... UA also lost pts-in-paint (34-24), 2nd-chance-pts (10-5), & fast-break pts (14-8) ... Hogs did win TOs (16-13), but against a poor ball-handling team that margin was too close ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958759696223100928

* Of their 5 road losses, Hogs have fallen by 11+ pts 4 times ... UA's avg. losing margin on the road is 13.8 pts ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958762827606646784

* Razorback Rewind: Freshman @bigdayday4 made his 5th start in last 6 gms & was UA's most aggressive/effective baller around the basket vs Aggies' big lineup! DayDay scored 13 pts (6-6 FGs incl 1-1 from 3) to go w/tm-highs in mins (35), rbs (7), stls (2), plus he had 1 ast & 1 blk!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958750639328284672

* Hogs R now 4-1 when @bigdayday4 is in the starting lineup, & he was a HUGE reason UA finally got off to a fast start on the road, scoring 6 pts (incl 2 nasty throwdowns!) as UA built a 19-11 lead ... Day Day avg 20.7 mins, 7.8 pts (68.0% FGs incl 3-4 from 3), & 3.7 rbs last 6 gms

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958753706849259522

* Reigning SEC Player of the Week @Daryl4Macon continued his points-parade playing off the bench, scoring 20 pts (7-16 FGs incl 3-9 from 3, plus 3-3 FTs) to go w/4 rbs and tm-highs in asts (4) & stls (2) ... #MaconBuckets has scored 20+ last 4 gms!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958755948738306050

* Senior G @Jbarford1 w/19 pts (7-16 FGs incl 3-7 from 3, plus 2-2 FTs) to go w/5 rbs, 4 ast ... freshman F/C @Dan_G33 w/5 pts (2-4 FGs & 1-2 FTs), 4 rbs, & 1 blk in 20 foul-plagued mins ... senior G @antonbeard31 w/7 pts (2-9 FGs incl 1-4 from 3, plus 2-4 FTs), 3 rbs, 2 ast, 1 stl

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/958757339825430528

* Gafford has struggled of late, combining for only 11 pts, 11 rbs, & 2 blks while piling up 11 fouls in the Hogs' last 3 games ... for the season, Gafford's numbers are still solid = 11.0 pts (60.1% FGs), 6.1 rbs, & 1.8 blks in 22.0 mins per game ...

Razorback Rewind: LSU

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (15-8, 4-6 SEC, RPI No. 40) fall on the road, AGAIN, this time giving up season-most pts in 94-86 loss to struggling LSU, which shot 15-30 from 3 (50%), 29-55 overall (52.7%), & 21-23 FTs (91.3%). UA now 1-6 in true road gms, avg losing margin is 12.8 pts!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/960216622148521989

* Hogs have given up 50+% from 3 against AUB, FL, & now LSU; 40+% to TN & GA, & 38% to Ole Miss, Missouri, & TA&M -- porous 3-pt D in 8 of 10 SEC gms! LSU freshman PG Tremont Waters owned UA in Tigers' 2-gm sweep of Hogs, today picking-&-choosing his way to 27 pts, 11 asts, 1 stl!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/960216939116285954

* Hogs' ineffective 3-pt defense -- again, 3 SEC opponents shot better than 50%, 2 more shot better than 40%, & 3 more shot 38% ... that's 38+% in 8 of 10 SEC gms -- is the result of a bad combo of ineffective scheme & poor effort, problems that fall back on coaching. Inexcusable!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/960217374434779136

* Razorback Rewind: If Hogs R not squarely on NCAAT bubble at this point, they're a whisker away from it! UA closes final 8 SEC gms w/5 at BWA. Incl neutral-site gms from PK80 Invt'l back in Nov, Hogs R 3-7 away from home. Senior G @Daryl4Macon led w/22 pts, his 5th str8 gm w/20+

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/960218249177829376

* Razorback Rewind: UA won rbs (30-25), pts-in-paint (48-22), pts-off-TOs (17-9), fast-break pts (14-2), but this gm was won & lost from 3, & to some degree at FT line. While LSU bombed away for 15-30 from 3, Hogs were only 3-8. Tigers' FTs (21-23 for 91.3%) held off late Hog rally

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/960222598041882629

* If it was LSU's game-plan to defend Hogs' at 3-pt line while funneling everything to FT-line extended & inside to make the Hogs' bigs make plays -- and it was -- that strategy worked. However, Hogs' bigs responded, combining for 36 pts (incl 16-28 FGs), 14 rbs, 4 stls, 2 blks ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/960223908891852800

* Razorback Rewind: Bit of a bounce-back for freshman @Dan_G33, who scored 10 pts (after combining for only 11 pts previous 3 gms) to go w/tm-high 4 rbs, 1 blk, 1 stl in 21 mins; surprised freshman @bigdayday4 did NOT start & played only 17 mins, the perimeter D suffered as result!

Razorback Rewind: South Carolina

* Hogs (16-8, 5-6 SEC, RPI No. 36) get their 1st double-digit victory margin -- 81-65 tonite over South Carolina in BWA -- since a 27-pt win vs Cal St Bakersfield in late Dec ... senior guards @Daryl4Macon @Jbarford1 each scored 24 pts to lead UA, which has won 4 of its last 6 gms!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/961061364377714689

* Make that 25 pts for @Daryl4Macon, who recorded his 6th straight game w/20+ pts. Tonite, he shot 5-12 FGs (incl 3-7 from 3) & 12-13 FTs, plus he had game-highs in asts (4) & stls (3) ... @Jbarford1 shot 7-16 FGs (incl 5-9 from 3) & 5-6 FTs, plus he had 2 stls, 1 rb, 1 ast ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/961066477662060545

* UA lost rebs (33-29), but won 2nd-chance pts (12-7), TOs (18-13), pts-off-TOs (26-11), pts-in-paint (24-20), and fast-break pts (6-4) ... Hogs shot 23-29 FTs for 79.3%, about 13% better than their season numbers ... UA had 8 stls & 7 blks while limiting SCar to 41.2% FGs ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/961068508619698177

* Big night for Hogs freshmen! @Dan_G33 w/11 pts (5-7 FGs & 1-3 FTs) plus tm-highs in rbs (6) & blks (3) ... @GO22_LT w/his 1st extensive action in SEC play responded w/4 rbs, 2 asts, 2 drawn charges, & he forced a 5-second TO on SCar ... @bigdayday4 w/3 pts, 2 rbs, 1 stl, 1 blk!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/961071162229960709

* Nice contributions off the bench tonight for the Hogs: Senior F @T_Top24 continues to play well & produce, finishing w/6 pts (2-2 FGs & 2-2 FTs) plus tm-highs in rbs (6) & blks (3) to go w/1 stl & 1 ast ... sophomore SG @Cj_jones2 w/7 pts (3-6 FGs, all mid-range), 4 rbs, 1 ast.

Razorback Rewind: Vanderbilt

* Danimal Jam authored the best sequence of plays of the season as Hogs (17-8, 6-6 SEC, RPI No. 36) put down Vandy, 72-54, tonite at BWA, marking their 5th win in the last 7 gms. Freshman @Dan_G33 led the way w/16 pts, 9 rbs, & 7 blks, & this end-to-end action was simply brilliant!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/962533963230302209

* Sr G @Daryl4Macon w/gm-high 21 pts (his 7th str8 gm w/20+ pts) to go w/gm-high 4 asts plus 4 rbs ... Sr G @Jbarford1 chipped in 16 pts ... @Dan_G33 also had tm-high 2 stls ... Hogs have won back-to-back gms by double-digit winning margins (previous 5 Ws were by total of 12 pts)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/962540043029147648

* Hogs' 3-pt D has not been good in SEC play, but tonite it was fantastic! UA gave up only 3-26 from distance (11.5%) vs a good 3-pt shooting 'Dores tm ... Vandy shot only 14-56 FGs overall (25.0%) ... Hogs won rebs (43-37), asts (13-4), fast-break pts (14-2), & stls+blks (15-9).

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/962547508839964672

* Sr G @antonbeard31 w/nice floor gm (7 pts, 4 rbs, 3 ast, 1 stl, & no TOs in 30 mins). UA's bench came thru, too = @T_Top24 2 pts, 5 rbs, 2 asts, 2 stls, 1 blk @Cj_jones2 4 pts, 1 rb @YehThatsMe_DT13 3 pts, 7 rbs, 2 asts, 1 stl @GO22_LT 1 pt, 2 rbs, 1 blk @bigdayday4 2 rbs, 1 ast

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/962551266298793984

* Hogs (RPI No. 36) are 9-8 vs. RPI Top 100 = 3-3 vs. RPI Nos. 1-25 ... 0-3 vs. RPI Nos. 26-75 ... 6-2 vs. RPI Nos. 76-100 ... Hogs are 8-0 vs. RPI Nos. 101+

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/962579637724438528

Razorback Rewind: Ole Miss

* Razorback Rewind: Freshmen Hogs @Dan_G33 & @bigdayday4 imposed their will on Ole Miss, combining for 33 pts, 17 rbs, 3 asts as Arkansas won its 3rd game in a row, 75-64 (all 3 wins by double-digit margins)! Hogs (18-8, 7-6 SEC, RPI No. 33) now 2-6 on the road, 4-7 away from home!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/963828574837968896

* .@bigdayday4 recorded his 1st career double-double = 14 pts (5-8 FGs incl 3-4 from 3), 11 rbs, & 3 asts, and the 14 pts tied DayDay's career high ... @Dan_G33 had 19 pts (6-7 FGs) & 6 rbs, and the 19 pts is a career high for Daniel in an SEC game ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/963829390433021955

* .@Dan_G33 & @bigdayday4 were longer, stronger, more determined, & simply better than any combo of players Ole Miss sent at them. Hall was all over the glass at both ends, & his stroke from 3 helped offset an off night shooting for Macon & Barford. Gafford was unstoppable inside!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/963830179721342980

* Razorback Rewind: Sr guards @antonbeard31 (13 pts, 3 rbs, 1  ast, 1 stl) @Jbarford1 (13 pts, 5 rbs, 1 ast) @Daryl4Macon (4 pts, gm-high 6 ast, 4 rbs, 1 stl) helped fuel another strong D effort by Hogs, who held Ole Miss to just 18-of-62 FGs (29.0%), incl 8-of-25 from 3 (32.0%)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/963831444706611200

* Hogs are not only winners of their last 3 games, but they've won 6 of their last 8 games ... UA got the best of OM in nearly every stat category = rebs (49-47), asts (15-11), TOs (10-8), pts-off-TOs (10-8), pts in paint (26-18), 2nd-chance-pts (15-8), and bench scoring (20-9)

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/963832995445723136

* Starter @antonbeard31 has been an unsung hero in Hogs' current 3-gm win streak = 82 mins, 25 pts (47.6% FGs incl 50% from 3), 7 rbs, 5 asts, 3 stls, and ONLY 2 TOs ... Sr F @T_Top24 also has been steady & reliable off the bench, recording 5 rbs, 3 asts, 1 stl last nite in 22 mins

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/963835989310562305

* Razorback Rewind: UA got good production from the combo-4s: Senior @YehThatsMe_DT13 w/6 pts, 4 rbs, 1 ast in 21 mins, & freshman @GO22_LT w/3 pts, 3 rbs in 8 mins ... Gabe has been key in UA's 3-gm W streak = 41 mins, 4 pts, 9 rbs, 1 blk ... he brings energy, effort, physical D!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/963839193238659072

* Razorback Rewind: Sr G @Daryl4Macon saw his streak of 20+ pt games come to an end at 7 (one shy of tying Corliss Williamson), but he showed strong leadership on a nite his shots weren't falling by getting others involved (game-high 6 asts), hitting the glass (4 rbs), & defending!

Razorback Rewind: No. 21 Texas A&M

* Razorback Rewind: @Jbarford1 & @Daryl4Macon combined for 41 pts & @Dan_G33 had 18 pts (7-of-8 FGs & 4-of-6 FTs), 6 rbs, 2 blks, 2 asts, 1 stl as the Hogs (19-8, 8-6 SEC, RPI No. 25) ran over No. 21 Texas A&M, 94-75, in front of 18,097 fans at BWA on Sat for their 4th straight win!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965290602991702017

* UA win coupled w/Ls by Mizzou, FLA, Alabama catapulted Hogs from 6th place to 4-way tie for 3rd in SEC w/4 gms remaining. Current 4-gm win streak (all by double-digit margins) is UA's longest since December. Hogs have won 7 of last 9, & they've won 36 str8 after leading at half!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965292260177965057

* Arkansas is unbeaten when @Jbarford1 (21 pts vs. TA&M) and @Daryl4Macon (20 pts vs. TA&M) each score 20+ pts ... the 2 combined for a sizzling 8-of-16 from behind the arc ... Barford added 5 rbs, 5 asts, 1 stl in his 32 mins ... Macon chipped in 3 rbs & 3 asts in his 24 mins ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965293443546320897

* Razorback Rewind: Battling Ags' big/impressive frontline, Hogs surprisingly won glass (45-33), 2nd-chance pts (17-14), & pts-in-paint (34-32). They also won TOs (13-9), pts-off-TOs (18-10), & bench scoring (23-8). Was 4th str8 gm Hogs' 3-pt D was strong: Ags only 4-of-17 (23.5%)!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965295084685193217

* Frontline-by-committee helped Hogs win paint battles against Ags' monster duo of Robert Williams (20 pts, 14 rbs, 3 blks) & Tyler Davis (15 pts, 7 rbs, 1 blk) ... @Dan_G33 @YehThatsMe_DT13 @T_Top24 @GO22_LT @bigdayday4 combined for 35 pts, 25 rbs, 3 blks, 3 stls ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965306701636304896

* More on that 3-pt D: Improvement has been biggest reason Hogs have won 4 str8 gms & helps explain the large winning margins. Looking back, Hogs held SCar to 33.3%, Vandy to 11.5%, Ole Miss to 30.4%, & Aggies to 23.5% ... 8 of UA's first 10 SEC opponents shot 38% or better from 3!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965298185903190016

* No coincidence that D surge started when freshmen @bigdayday4 @GO22_LT received increased roles & significant minutes. Both have 7-foot+ wingspan, both have quick feet, & both play D w/hair on fire = taking charges, getting deflections, strong close-outs, walling off penetration!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965299510833569793

* Razorback Rewind: Sr guard @antonbeard31 continued to be steady like a rock for Hogs, contributing 5 pts, tm-high 5 asts, only 1 TO in 27 mins vs Ags (in current 4-gm win streak, he's had 11 asts & only 3 TOs) ... Sr F @YehThatsMe_DT13 had 7 pts, 3 rbs, 1 stl in 19 mins vs TA&M.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965302660428681216

* Razorback Rewind: Bench play was key for UA! Sophomore @Cj_jones2 had 13 pts (5-7 FGs incl 1-of- 2 from 3 & 2-3 FTs), 2 rbs, 1 stl in 18 mins ... freshman @GO22_LT w/6 pts, 3 rbs, 1 stl, 1 blk, 1 ast in 15 mins ... freshman @bigdayday4 w/2 pts, team-high 7 rbs, 1 ast in 17 mins!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965304869824421890

* Hogs are 8-8 vs current RPI Top 100 = 3-4 vs Nos. 1-25 (Ls vs UNC, Auburn, Houston, TA&M ... Ws vs TN, TA&M, Mizzou) ... 2-4 vs RPI Nos. 26-75 (Ls vs FL, MSSt, LSU twice ... Ws vs OU and GA) ... 3-0 vs RPI Nos. 76-100 (Ws vs SCar, Bucknell, Fresno St) ... UA 11-0 vs RPI Nos. 101+

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/965310743720677377

* Despite 4-gm W streak that's propelled Hogs into top 1/3rd of tuff SEC & having an RPI in mid-20s, UA still in 9-seed range due to BPI (37th), SOS (45th), only 2 marginal quality Ws (OU & GA) among 4-7 "away" record, struggles of OOC opponents (OU w/5 str8 Ls, MN & UConn tanking)

Thanks Kevin. The way Gafford, Hall, Gabe, and Jones have played looks very promising.

Razorback Rewind: Kentucky

* Razorback Rewind: Kentucky owned the glass & the paint, played above the rim, and ran away from Arkansas (19-9, 8-7 SEC, RPI No. 34) in the 2nd half for a decisive 87-72 win on Super Tuesday in BWA ... 'Cats finished the game on 31-11 run for their 6th consecutive win over Hogs.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/966413789208825858

* Kentucky won the boards (46-29), pts-in-paint (38-26), pts-off-TOs (15-9), asts (16-14), and bench scoring (38-6) ... the 'Cats also shot better everywhere compared to the Hogs = 46.3% FGs (Hogs 39.7%), 38.1% 3-pt FGs (Hogs 34.6%), and 85.0% FTs (Hogs 72.2%) ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/966415252681261056

* On D, UK sent waves of talented, long, athletic ballers at Hog freshman @Dan_G33 (9 pts, 5 rbs, 4 blks, 1 stl, 1 ast) as they decided to put him at FT line rather than let him play his above-the-rim gm ... 'Cats much better in 2nd half of limiting UA to 1 shot per possession ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/966418068657311744

* Razorback Rewind: Bright spots for UA were some of the contributions of seniors @Daryl4Macon (gm-high 26 pts on 8-16 FGs incl 4-9 from 3, plus 6-7 FTs) @antonbeard31 (13 pts on 5-8 FGs incl 3-6 from 3, plus tm-high 5 asts) & @YehThatsMe_DT13 (6 pts, gm-high 10 rbs, 1 stl, 1 ast).

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/966417526857986048

* Razorback Rewind: Arkansas is currently in a tie for 5th place in the SEC w/MSSt, Kentucky, & Missouri at 8-7 ... Hogs (RPI No. 34, SOS No. 40, BPI No. 40) are now 8-9 vs. the RPI Top 100 = 4-5 vs. RPI Nos. 1-50 and 4-4 vs. RPI Nos. 51-100 ... UA is 11-0 vs. RPI Nos. 101+

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/966423341086265346

* Counting the last 3 regular-season gms plus the SEC tournament, I believe the Hogs need at minimum 2 more wins (possibly 3 more) to get an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament ...

Razorback Rewind: Alabama

* Senior G @Daryl4Macon led 5 Hogs in double figures w/17 pts to go w/5 rbs, 3 asts, & 3 stls to lead Arkansas (20-9, 9-7 SEC, RPI No. 28) over Alabama, 76-73, marking the Hogs' 2nd consecutive road win, their 3rd win in their last 5 road games, & their 5th win in the last 6 games!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/967568553946877952

* Under Head Hog @MikeAndersonUA, the Hogs have now won 37 consecutive games after leading at halftime, the've won 20+ games for the 4th time in the last 5 seasons, and they've assured themselves of a non-losing record in the SEC for the 6th consecutive season ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/967568973901463554

* Great balance for Hogs tonite! After Macon's 17 pts, senior G @Jbarford1 had 10 pts (4-7 FGs incl 2-3 from 3) ... freshman big @Dan_G33 w/11 pts & 7 rbs ... senior F @YehThatsMe_DT13 w/11 pts (4-5 Fgs & 3-4 FTs), 2 rbs, 1 ast, 1 stl ... sophomore SG @Cj_jones2 w/13 pts off bench!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/967570478029246464

* And how about forwards @T_Top24 (7 rbs, 5 asts, 1 blk) and @adriobailey (7 pts, 5 rbs, 1 blk, 1 ast) off the bench?! Arkansas won the glass, 36-28, and they won for the 2nd consecutive time in Tuscaloosa ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/967571281125232640

* Arkansas will be no worse than in a 4-way tie for 3rd place in the SEC tonight w/one more week (2 gms) to play before SECT ... and Hogs can still finish 2nd in SEC ... UA now 11-9 vs RPI Top 100 = 5-5 vs RPI Nos. 1-50 and 6-4 vs RPI Nos. 51-100 ... Hogs 9-0 vs. RPI Nos. 101+

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/967574144488534018

* Hogs may have punched their ticket to the Dance tonite! If so, that's 3 NCAATs in past 4 seasons ... incl NIT in '13-14, UA will have advanced to postseason play beyond 1st round of SECT for the 4th time in the past 5 seasons ... all after a 5-season postseason drought ('08-13)!!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/967575609923833857

* UA tied 3rd in SEC w/KY, FL, MSSt at 9-7, w/Auburn in 1st (12-4) & TN in 2nd (11-5). Hogs can finish 2nd IF: a) they beat Auburn & Mizzou next wk while b) TN loses at MSSt & vs GA; c) MSSt beats TN & loses at LSU; d) KY loses to OM or at FL; and e) FL loses at Bama or vs KY ...

Razorback Rewind: No. 14 Auburn ... changing up and just gonna post several of my tweets from last night at BWA ... (some with video from the post-game presser and pre-game warmups) ...

* Hogs (21-9, 10-7 SEC, RPI No. 26) defeated their 4th ranked opponent of the season, taking down No. 14 Auburn, 91-82, on Senior Night at BWA! Arkansas has won for the 6th time in its last 7 gms, & a win at Mizzou on Saturday assures the Hogs of no worse than 4th place in the SEC!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968700306665205761

* UA has now won for the 38th str8 time after leading at halftime ... Hogs lock up an SEC winning record for the 5th time in Head Hog @MikeAndersonUA's 7 seasons ... if there was any doubt UA had secured an NCAAT bid, wonder no more as the Hogs will Dance for 3rd time in last 4 seasons!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968701296642609152

* Two Hogs w/double-doubles tonight: @Dan_G33 w/21 pts & 10 rbs and @Jbarford1 w/20 pts & 10 rbs ... @Daryl4Macon w/16 pts (6-of-7 FGs incl 4-of-4 from 3) & 6 asts ... @antonbeard31 w/11 pts, 5 asts, 4 rbs ... Hogs held Auburn to 34.4% FGs (25.0% from 3) ... UA won glass 39-37 ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968702292965969926

* Final boxscore: Hogs 91, No. 14 Auburn 82 ... freshman @Dan_G33's stat line reads like what I witnessed when he was putting up monster numbers at El Dorado HS = 21 pts (10-of-15 FGs), 10 rbs, 7 blks, 2 asts ... Hogs won pts-in-paint (26-20), pts-off-TOs (16-9), fast break (17-7).

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968705576753606662

* Arkansas won bench scoring, 40-15 ... Hogs won asts, 19-11... Hogs won FG shooting (31-of-59 for 52.5% compared to 22-of-64 for 34.4% by Auburn) and 3-pt shooting (10-of-19 for 52.6% compared to 7-of-28 for 25.0% for Auburn) ... Tigers' won FT line, going 31-of-34 for 91.2%.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968707095393685504

* After both reached the career 1,000-pt scoring club at Arkansas, seniors @Jbarford1 & @Daryl4Macon address the media after the Hogs' 91-82 win over No. 14 Auburn ... Macon just said he thinks @Dan_G33 is the "best" big "in the country."

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968708068497293313

* Auburn HC Bruce Pearl said Arkansas is playing as well as any team in the SEC, says if Hogs can improve at FT line he thinks they can go far in the postseason ... he said @Dan_G33 was a "monster" inside tonight ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968714629378650112

* Head Hog @MikeAndersonUA addresses the media after his Arkansas squad disposed of No. 14 Auburn, 91-82, on Senior Night in front of 13,898 fans ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968712160493875200

Here were my pre-game "keys" for the Hogs ...

* Hogs need to play through @Dan_G33 tonight, play inside out & test Auburn's lack of depth & fouls trying to defend him ... UA must defend 3-pt line, compete on the glass, & limit fouling Auburn tm that shoots 24.3 FTs per game at 78.1%.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968666920835862529

Here were my in-game tweets regarding Daryl Macon and Jaylen Barford reaching the career 1,000-pt club milestone ...

* Senior G @Daryl4Macon just became the 42nd Hog to reach the 1,000-pt club on a triple that put Hogs up 61-42! #MaconBuckets has 14 pts on 5-of-5 FGs incl 4-of-4 from 3.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968688238356549632

* Senior G @Jbarford1 hits a 3 and a step-back J, giving him 18 pts & making him the 43rd Hog to join the 1,000-pt club ... Hogs leading No. 14 Auburn, 80-65, w/7:32 to play!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968694218947485696

Here are a couple of pre-game highlight reels showing the Hogs getting up shots and getting loose as they prepared for Auburn about an hour or so before tip (I do this at every home game) ...

* U hope @Daryl4Macon savin' some of these buckets for Auburn! He's gettin' up shots an hour before tip ... nothin' but rip city in this reel ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/968654312489603072

* We got Hogs gettin' loose for No. 14 Auburn tonite in BWA! @bigdayday4 @Dan_G33 @T_Top24 & Jonathan Holmes

Razorback Rewind: Missouri

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs (21-10, 10-8 SEC, RPI No. 30) lost at Missouri, 77-67, in their regular-season finale Sat, finishing in 3-way tie for 4th place in the SEC w/the Tigers & No. 23 Kentucky ... Hogs R the 6th seed in SECT, & will play Thurs vs. Wed-winner of SCar-vs-Ole Miss.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/970370615252279296

* If Hogs win that Thurs 2nd-round matchup (tip is 8:30ish CT on SECN), they'll advance to Friday's quarterfinals vs 3rd-place Florida ... Arkansas has most recently been projected NCAAT 6-to-8 seed range, and IMO the Hogs likely need 2 more wins to earn a NCAAT 7-seed or better.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/970376231223873536

* After 1-3 start in SEC play that incl a 3-gm losing skid, UA won 10 of its last 15 gms ... Hogs started 0-4 in true road gms, but split the rest winning 3 of their last 6 ... UA now 5-8 outside state of Arkansas (incl neutral-site gms at PK80 Invt'l) ... Hogs 10-10 vs RPI Top 100

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/970382998242775041

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs' ineffective double-teams in the post opened the flood gates for easy buckets (or FTs) for cutters beating UA's slow help rotations ... Mizzou also got off from 3 (10-24 for 41.7%) ... Tigers dominated glass (37-25 incl 11-6 O rebs) & 2nd-chance-pts (15-4).

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/970390319966703617

* Razorback Rewind: Hogs' Big 3 Daryl Macon (12 pts, 6 asts), Jaylen Barford (11 pts, 5 rbs, 4 asts), & Dan Gafford (16 pts, 4 rbs, 4 blk) finished regular-season deserving of SEC postseason honors: IMO, Macon should be All SEC 1st tm, Barford & Gafford 2nd tm, Gafford All Freshman

Razorback Rewind: South Carolina / 2nd round of SECT

* Hogs (22-10, 11-8 in SEC gms, RPI No. 28) made 23 of 26 FTs -- that's 91.7% -- & got some tough scores late from senior guards @Jbarford1 (deep 3 & lay-in after steal) & @Daryl4Macon (2-of-2 FTs to extend 2-pt lead to 4) as UA beat SCarolina, 69-64, tonite in 2nd round of SECT.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/971970481455681541

* Make that 88.5% from the FT line for Arkansas ... still, that's about 21.5% better than the Hogs' season FT shooting (they came in hitting at 67.0%) ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/971972960306135042

* Arkansas will face No. 23 Florida in Friday night's SECT quarterfinals ... tip is expected to be 8:30ish CT on SEC Network ... Hogs have won 7 of their last 9 games, incl 3 away from home ... UA now 3-1 in neutral-site games, and 6-8 overall outside the state of Arkansas ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/971971645693878273

* All SEC ballers @Jbarford1 (17 pts on 6-of-11 FGs incl 2-of-5 from 3, plus 3-of-3 FTs) and @Daryl4Macon (12 pts on 2-of-10 FGs plus 8-of-8 FTs) were the only Hogs in double figures ... Macon also had 4 rbs & 4 asts, while Barford contributed 3 stls & 2 rbs ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/971974516204232705

* Hog freshmen @bigdayday4 @Dan_G33 combined for valuable production to help forge a close W = 17 pts (8-of-10 FGs), 4 rbs, 4 blks, 1 ast, 1 stl ... soph F @adriobailey started & had 9 pts, 4 rbs, 3 stls, 2 blks ... Sr G @antonbeard31 w/7 pts, tm-high 4 rbs, gm-high 5 asts & 3 stls

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/971980836395352064

* Hogs have now won 39 consecutive gms after leading at halftime ... UA went 2-0 this season against SCarolina (Hogs won 81-65 at home back in early Feb) ... UA has lost 8 straight against Florida (Hogs' Fri opponent in SECT quartefinals) ... last time UA beat Gators: Feb 2013 ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/971983456627388416

* Arkansas lost rbs (42-29) and 2nd-chance-pts (16-10), but won turnovers (19-14), pts-off-TOs (19-11), pts-in-paint (28-24), and fast-break-pts (8-5) ... Hogs won this game at the FT line, making 23-of-26 (88.5%) compared to only 10-of-16 FTs (62.5%) for SCarolina.

Razorback Rewind: No. 23 Florida / SECT quarterfinals

* Hogs (23-10, 12-8 in SEC gms, RPI No. 27) out-toughed No. 23 Florida, snapping an 8-game losing streak to the Gators w/a 80-72 win tonight in the SECT quarterfinals in St. Louis ... No. 6 seed UA (has won 40 straight gms when leading at half) will play 2-seed TN in SECT semis ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/972332218994618368

* Make that RPI No. 26 for Hogs, who have reached the SECT semis for the 3rd time in last 4 seasons ... UA now 4-1 in neutral-site games, & 7-8 in gms outside the state of Arkansas ... Hogs picked up their 5th win over ranked teams this season ... UA has won 8 of its last 10 gms.

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/972333512475934720

* Hogs now 3-2 combined on the season against the Top 3 seeded SEC teams = 1-1 vs. No. 1 Auburn, 1-0 vs. No. 2 Tennessee, now 1-1 vs. No. 3 Florida ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/972334441300418561

* Senior guard @Jbarford1 (27 pts, 10 rbs, 1 ast) and freshman F/C @Dan_G33 (16 pts, 12 rbs, 1 blk, 1 ast) both had double-doubles for the Hogs, who owned the last 5 mins of the 1st half & simply out-toughed the Gators during a 16-2 run that broke a 46-all tie in the 2nd half ...

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/972336125439303682

* Senior guards @Daryl4Macon (13 pts, 4 rbs, 3 asts) & @antonbeard31 (10 pts, 3 rbs, 3 asts) joined Barford & freshman wing @bigdayday4 (6 pts & 2 rbs) for the toughest perimeter D that Arkansas has put up against Florida in years ...

Razorback Rewind: No. 13 Tennessee / SECT semis

* Razorback Rewind: Arkansas (23-11, 12-9 SEC gms, RPI No. 30) fell hard, 84-66, to No. 13 Tennessee on Sat in the SECT semis ... Hogs will soon learn their NCAAT at-large seeding (Selection Sunday begins today at 5 pm CT on TBS) ... UA trending a 6-seed at http://bracketmatrix.com

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/972914132289818624

* Hogs' 6-seed projection at http://bracketmatrix.com  is an aggregate of numerous Bracketologies. Over at ESPN, Bracketologist @ESPNLunardi dropped UA from projected 6-seed to 7 (after the L to TN in SECT semis). Whether 6 or 7, preferred 2nd/3rd-round gm sites: Dallas or Nashville!

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/972924754620542977

* Hogs were 3-3 against Top 3 SEC tms (that's 1-1 each vs Auburn, Tennessee, & Florida) ... Arkansas won 8 of its last 11 gms, went 15-2 at BWA, 1-0 in NLR, 3-7 on the road, & 4-2 in neutral-site gms ... Hogs 6-9 in "Quadrant 1" gms, and 11-11 vs RPI Top 100 (incl 7-8 vs Top 50).

https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/972914492739932161

* Wasn't so much that UA played poorly in 18-pt loss, it was more to do w/an earth-scorching-hot Vols tm that was 11-17 from 3 (64.7%) & 57.1% overall FGs, making shots even in the face of solid D. Hogs hung on glass (only -3 at 26-29), won pts-in-paint (24-22), & TOs even (10-10).

* Razorback Rewind: Senior guards @Daryl4Macon (19 pts on 5-10 FGs incl 2-3 from 3, plus 7-7 FTs) @Jbarford1 (14 pts on 4-8 FGs incl 3-6 from 3, plus 3-4 FTs) & @antonbeard31 (11 pts, tm-high 4 asts, tm-high 3 stls) had their moments, but Vols' were too good inside-out at both ends

* Razorback Rewind: Freshman wing @bigdayday4 had another impressive performance = 11 pts (3-8 FGs & 5-6 FTs) and a game-high 7 rbs in 21 mins off the bench ... DayDay length, strength, athleticism a big plus battling Schofield & Bowden. Freshman @Dan_G33 w/8 pts on 3-4 FGs, 5 rbs.

Razorback Rewind: 10-seed Butler / NCAAT 1st round

* Butler obliterated Arkansas on glass (45-25), & 1-2 punch of senior F Kelan Martin (27 pts, 9 rbs) & soph G Kamar Baldwin (24 pts, 9 rbs) was too much for Hogs in 79-62 runaway 'Dogs W. UA simply was not sound or prepared on D = 'Dogs shot 49.2% FGs (incl 11-26 from 3 for 42.3%)

* Arkansas did NOT a) handle pick-&-roll effectively, b) stop penetration, c) compete w/urgency on glass. Hogs' personnel choices & lack of execution during big swing possessions & late-clock situations played into Dogs' favor. UA ends season 23-12, & lost by 10+ pts for 10th time!

* Somewhat disagree. Hogs could've had advantage inside, but uncharacteristically DGafford faded on shots, rushed shots, didn't go up on a mission like we normally see. Hogs also missed him numerous times when he had inside position, & guards did not move well after passing inside.

* Hogs looked like they were playing in cement sneakers as Butler raced out to 21-2 lead, but Arkansas fought back to get within 5, 36-31, at halftime ... Hogs made too many ball-handling errors (guards kicked it around early, & bigs fumbled rbs back into Butler hands for finishes.

* Butler dominated glass (25-15), & turnovers didn't favor Arkansas enuff (only 7-6 advantage) ... bigger perimeter lineup (DHall & CJJones), going to matchup zone, & pressing seemed to help Hogs, but UA did a poor job of finding DGafford, who struggled when he did get the ball ...

* Butler up 10, 46-36, w/15:34 to play ... 'Dogs playing pick-&-roll further out on the floor, & it's opening up HUGE driving lanes all the way to the cup, which has also helped free up open looks from 3 ... UA trying to go inside early 2nd half, but D & board work still faltering

* Not surprised Beard opened 2nd half on the floor, but this matchup is NOT a good one defensively for him, a bit surprised CMA didn't bring Hall in after the under-16-min TO ... Hall finally checks in w/just over 13 mins to go ... Hogs down 51-40 ...
