OT Syracuse @ Arkansas
both teams' offenses played like they had a 30 point lead with 5 minutes left
Got to get a three point shooting contest set up for Mr. Southerland from Syracuse and our own Nik Stauskas. Southerland a major reason for why Syracuse maintains a lead (8-11 from three point land).
Young has taken 14 of Arkansas' 29 shots so far. Really?
Whatever happens tonight, I want us to beat the hell out of Arkansas when we play them. Those jackasses were shooting around 90% in the first half against us last year. They couldn't miss from anywhere.
that game will be an ass whoopin', M will go 13-0 before the B1G starts
Cuse not impressive
This Southerland guy can stroke it. He ain't no Stauskas but damn I'm impressed.
Bad call on both ends.
Thought that may have been a foul on the Ark player and thought the foul was on the floor.
young scares me. i think morgan can bang with him inside but he could spell trouble for us.
I watched the whole game. Arkansas is fast and great on transition. They don't have much of a 3-point shot and they had a rough time against Syracuse's zone defense. The post players have pretty good moves - I saw a couple spin moves and good lateral movement. Rebounding is ok, but not great. Young was really good tonight, but it looks like he got winded. They had a lot of trouble defending Southerland and I think they will have similar problems against Stauskas.
Syracuse looked pretty good tonight, but they couldn't pull away. Too many turnovers and silly fouls on Syracuse's part.
