Arkansas stats pack

They enter this game perfect in the SEC (0-4). It is a road game for us so you're probably thinking what I'm thinking.

Stats (in PDF format)

Michael Washington has been their most consistent player, but he's soooo weak playing inside. Arkansas wins if Fortson plays well... and he's stunk it up so far in SEC play. Welsh and Clarke are the ones to watch beyond the arc.

FG: 45%
3PT FG: 33%
Rebound margin: +5.9
Turnovers: 14.1
Scoring: 76.2
Scoring D: 69.7

Prediction: How does the team respond to a new coach? Is he the same as the old coach? While it was time for Gottfried to be replaced, Pearson IMO is a clone so I don't expect much to change. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyways, we can contain Washington inside with our big men, but I see Fortson having a field day with Welsh draining 3s left and right. Arkansas by 12.

Gametime is 8:05 PM on ESPN.

Note- Arkansas is giving away free tickets to students so it should be even more raucous than normal. Read about it here.
