Arkansas 56, Vanderbilt 33: Weird

New, 7 comments

Not a typo. Arkansas only scored 56 points and still won by 23.

Interested to know what you guys thought about this one.

Vanderbilt didn't start playing until Cox and Fox Sports got their act together and began showing the game on the channel it was supposed to be on. When the game finally appeared on my TV, Vanderbilt was losing by double digits and had only scored 3 points, despite most of the first half already complete. The Commodores were on pace to score only 12 points for the entire game.

Arkansas led 21-11 at halftime, a score so pitiful it generated a swarm of mocking tweets and message board posts before the second half started.

But Marshawn Powell had one of his best games as a Razorback. After a truly horrific performance at Texas A&M on Wednesday, he led the team with 17 points, 6 rebounds, 6 steals, 2 blocks, and 1 assist. Powell and BJ Young were really the only two players with great performances. Young had 14 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.

Hunter Mickelson, with 6 points, was the only other Arkansas player to score more than 5 points. Nobody scored in double digits for Vanderbilt. Sheldon Jeter led the Commodores with 8 points.

The Razorbacks collected 25 turnovers from Vanderbilt, many of them forced. The Commodores also shot at least 3 air balls.

Here are the highlights:
