Hogs come into the game after a disappointing loss at LSU. I would say this is a big early game for both teams... to take early control of the SEC West. Here's a writeup from the Arkansas site. Note the error on their site... saying we have won 6 in a row. It's 5... unless they are conceding defeat later today :)
Arkansas has a balanced scoring attack led by Rotnei Clarke and Delvon Johnson. Johnson also leads the team in rebounds. I watched them one time this year... against Texas in which they were decimated, but I figure I caught their worst game. Had to be.
Keys to the game:
- get the lead early... get the crowd out of the game.
- someone answer from the perimeter.
- perimeter defense... especially beyond the arc.
- Green and Hines stay out of foul trouble.
Prediction: It's tough to win 2 in a row on the road in the SEC. I. just. can't. do it. Hogs find their shooting range and win by 7.
Game time is 1:30PM EST (12:30PM CST) on the SEC Network.
