Game Thread: Missouri vs. Arkansas

The Tigers look to build off of their win over Alabama in Fayetteville.

NCAA Basketball: Alabama at Missouri Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Missouri 43 | Arkansas 87


First Half Notes

  • Arkansas starts out hot from the field in addition to some aggressive defense. An early 7-0 run forces a Martin timeout.
  • The Razorbacks are all over the glass and shooting 77.8% overall. Mizzou’s turnovers and poor looks at the basket have led to a sizable deficit.
  • JD Notae with 9 early points, a hot start from one of the nation’s most prolific scorers is not what Mizzou wanted.
  • A 7 minute scoring drought is also not what they needed.
  • A fast break turnover leading to an Arkansas open dunk symbolizes the first half for Mizzou.
  • DaJuan Gordon breaks the scoring drought with two free throws!
  • Chris Lykes proving to be too much for Anton Brookshire to handle.
  • A 9th Missouri turnover takes us into the under 8.
  • Very stagnant offense. Nothing looks fluid and its leading to this offensive showing.
  • Arkansas winning every hustle play as well.

Second Half Notes

  • Turnovers continue to be a trend in the second half.
  • Razorbacks continue to look like they are on a different level than Mizzou, rest of the half seems to be a formality.
