Wednesday night was not all right for Mike Anderson and his Razorbacks. It was not the best match for Florida either.
Both teams had shortcomings every time they wanted to score the ball. Arkansas with more pressure to be home, but when things are not to go well, even if the basket is enlarged or the ball is smaller, the ball will never enter the basket. And that was exactly what happened to both Arkansas and Florida.
In the first half, both teams combined 20 points in the first ten minutes of the first half. At the end of the first half, Arkansas went to the locker room with the score against 33-22.
In the second half, Arkansas scored 29 points, those points were not enough and the Hogs ended up losing their first home conference game 57-51 versus Florida.
Mason Jones who scored 30 points for Arkansas. The worst performance by Jalen Harris point guard from Arkansas was on Wednesday, contributing only two points. Daniel Gafford scored 9 points and 12 rebounds.
