The Razorbacks went through some more adversity on this week in 1994, losing a one-point game to unranked Mississippi State in Starkville as Al Dillard’s desperation 3 rimmed out.
From No. 1 to 3-2 in the SEC, fans back then would’ve probably been starting Jump Ball threads on Hogville such as:
-Nolan’s style won’t consistently work in this league
-We are already out of SECW contention
-Realistic coaching candidates
-Why can’t we win on the road?
-I don’t want to see Dwight Stewart take a 3 ever again
But little did they know that Arkansas wouldn’t lose again the rest of the regular season, starting with a Saturday rout of Eddie Fogler’s South Carolina Gamecocks. The Hogs would win that one 79-53.
Corliss Williamson had 27 points and the Hogs dominated the glass for the 26-point victory, limiting the visitors to just 36 percent field goal shooting and 25 percent from behind the arc.
A road trip to Knoxville loomed the following Saturday.
