I thought overall the team played well. Not nearly as many transition baskets given up, the offense did show some signs of life, and the team fought to the very end.
Torrance played well in the 1st half, Knox played well the 2nd half, and Green had his best game of the year. I want to add that Brock looked good at the point.
Gee and Hillman struggled from the field again (Torrance did too in the 2nd half), we let another short white guy go nuts on us (Clarke), and Washington was too much offensively inside for our guys.
- FT shooting
- Good effort from our big men
- Pearson tried using many players
- Arkansas shot over 50%
- "Held" Arkansas to 45% from beyond the arc.
- Guard play wasn't up to snuff
It is what it is... we're a team of athletes with not much shooting ability. We got 2 in the starting lineup that are the same player. If we had a shooter on this team we could be a contender.
Arkansas finally played a decent game (as all opponents seem to do against us). Sadly, their freshmen outplayed our upperclassmen. I can't blame the kids... it's what they've been used to their entire careers.
