Razorback Rewind ... will post ITT after every Hog game ...
« on: November 21, 2017, 02:56:48 pm »

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!

* 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) ...

* 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.

* 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 ...
