Hogs Spank Kentucky
What a sweet, sweet win it was for the Hogs against SEC east rival Kentucky the other day. Arkansas jumped out to a a 36-22 lead and cruised to a 86-72 win over the over-matched Mildcats.
Joe Johnson was outstanding as the freshman went for 21 points and 5 rebounds. That dude is headed for super-stardom in the NBA someday, I can just feel it. Let's just hope that he doesn't end up in a dismal NBA city like Atlanta.
My man, Sergerio Gipson had 16 for the Razorbacks out of nowhere, and Brandon Dean was solid with 12 points.
The Razorbacks demonstrated some serious defense in holding the Cats to only 38% shooting from the field and only 21% from the three-point line. Tayshaun Prince had 15 points and 6 rebounds and continues to amaze me with his overall lack of impressiveness. He's one of those guys that will probably make it in the NBA because of his freakish arms. Keith Bogans had 25 pts. and Jamaal Magloire added 16 points and 13 boards for the Wildcats that just didn't stand a chance.
I missed the game on TV, but here's the full boxscore of Saturday's dominating Razorback win. Way to go, boys!
Life is good Razorback fans!
P.S. Somewhere, some kid named Jodie Meeks is watching, nailing 25 footers, and plotting his revenge. Bastard.
