Throwback Thursday: Overcoming Adversity

The Hogs stumbled a bit in SEC play but rebounded strong.

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.
