Simply put, Daryl Macon took over in overtime against Tennessee. That performance thrown in with the game against CSU Bakersfield got him SEC Player of the Week honors.

Macon had a career high 33 points in the overtime win. 11 of those came in the overtime period where he was perfect from both the floor and the free throw line to close out the game. Throw in his 16 points and eight assists against Bakersfield and that put him above the rest of the SEC.
Coming back for his senior season, he wanted to improve his draft stock and help the Razorback program reach another step forward. Any more 30+ point performances like this and it will go a long way to doing both. According to Razorback basketball, he’s the sixth player in program history to have multiple games of at least 30 points against SEC opponents. The list he joined is a pretty impressive one.
