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

* 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

* 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 ...

* 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)!

* 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)!

* 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!

* 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!

* 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!
