The Horror... The Horror

So I was in attendance last night in the great Bud Walton arena wearing my Hog-colored glasses and just knowing that this was the kind of game the Hogs would pull off. You had a LSU team venturing in with only one SEC loss and now ranked in the top 25 for the first time since 2007, and you had a Hog team on a downward spiral that was due for a win.

It looked good for the Hogs until the final few minutes when a lack of execution on the offensive end, and a lack of defensive rebounding ultimately cost the Hogs a win. LSU had 19 offensive rebounds (Tasmin Mitchell had 8 by himself) including one by Garrett Temple off a missed free throw with 16 seconds to go and LSU only up 2. A collective kick to the groin was felt by the fans in attendance after that happened, because Marcus Thornton hit both free throws after that to seal it for LSU.

You can check out the full boxscore here.

The Razorbacks are now 13-11 with a trip to South Carolina on the agenda for a Saturday game.
