Hoop Hogs Hammered On Road

Arkansas struggles from field and never led at No. 5 Florida.

Things didn’t go so well for Arkansas against Florida on the road as they did at home.

The Razorbacks fell behind 7-0 early and never had a lead as the Gators ran away with a 71-54 SEC win in Gainesville.

Arkansas struggled from the field as they shot just 36 percent (21-of-58) from the field. Marshawn Powell and BJ Young combined to go 3-of-16 for just 10 points. Young did not make a field goal.

Florida had four different players score 12 points or more and had four players hit two 3-pointer each. The Gators shot nearly 50 percent and committed just eight turnovers.

Coty Clarke was a bright spot for Arkansas as he was a perfect 8-of-8 from the field for a game high 18 points while Anthlon Bell knocked down four 3-pointers and added 14 points for the Hogs off the bench.

Arkansas is back on the road on Wednesday when they travel to LSU.
