Did we just lose that game? The one that we led by 15 midway through the second half? The one where everything seemed to be going our way during the last 10 minutes of the first half and the first 10 minutes of the second? Indeed, we did.

Wow - that was a massive heartbreaker of a loss, the kind of which Hog fans have seen too many times in recent years.

After holding the Rebels to just 26 points in the first half, the Razorbacks allowed Ole Miss to score 51 points after intermission. B.J. Young missed a difficult layup at the buzzer that would have tied the game and was seen leaving the court in tears.

He's not the only crying after that game. More thoughts later from Expats staffers in the days ahead. In the meantime, I need a stiff drink.
