Scouting The Arkansas Razorbacks

New, 2 comments

Oklahoma takes a step up in competition tonight when the Sooners visit the 9-1 Arkansas Razorbacks. Before we get too excited about the about the Hogs’ record it should be noted that it could be very misleading. Arkansas has played 8 of their 10 games at home where they have an 8-0 record but the level of their competition is questionable at best.

On the other hand the Razorbacks are doing what they are supposed to do in beating lesser competition. They are outscoring opponents by an average of 14.6 points per game while dominating the boards by pulling down almost 12 more rebounds a game than the competition.

This will be yet another three guard offense for the Sooners to face. Courtney Fortson will be the only starter (for either team) who stands under 6-0 tall. He is the leading scorer for the Razorbacks with 15.9 points per game and also dishes out more than 6 assists per game. The other two guards Stefan Welsh and Oklahoman Rotnei Clark average 12.4 and 12.6 points per game respectfully. Clark is also hitting 41% of his long distance shots and is perfect from the charity stripe. Junior forward Michael Washington averages a double-double for Arkansas with 15.1 points and a team-high 10.3 rebounds per game and is also good for at least one swat a game on defense. He is aided by freshman Michael Sanchez who adds 7 points per game.
