Arkansas Bad Performances
Moses Moody, G
Moody had another rough night for the Hogs in his 29 minutes of play. The 6’6” guard finished with another double digit performance, but was unable to get his shot going once again.
Moody shot one for four from three and two for nine from the field. However, he was able to get to the stripe again and finished perfect from there. Besides his ability to draw fouls and his defense, there was not much positive throughout the game for him. Moody did have an offensive rebound that was huge for Arkansas, and allowed him to get to the line.
Like I said in my last piece, when competitive teams start to play Arkansas he will need to step it up.
Jalen Tate, G
In his 26 minutes in the starting point guard role, Tate was not able to produce much on the floor. His two points were the second lowest of all players who played at least five minutes. Tate just simply couldn’t find a rhythm, and shot one for five on the night.
It didn’t help that he was also in foul trouble most of the night, as he was one away from being disqualified.
If Tate wants to continue to start for Arkansas, he will also have to show coach Musselman that he can hold on to the ball. He had three turnovers in the game, and one of them led to the opposing team scoring.
Vance Jackson, F
There really isn’t any other way to put it. Vance Jackson was putrid against North Texas. He only played nine minutes, but was not able to produce any on the floor. Yes you read that correctly, he was not able to produce any. Jackson finished with zero stats.
At 6’9”, Jackson needs to be on the court due to his size. This is a team who will use their size and length to their advantage, and could definitely use some more production out of him.
