No 3. The Razorbacks, despite poor three point shooting, are in good shape

Arkansas continues to struggle from beyond the arc, landing just 30% of their attempts in this game. It continues a troubling trend for the team that they’ll need to address before conference play begins.

The Hogs shot 22% from three against UCA and 17.6% against Penn. It’s going to be tough to beat the premiere teams of the SEC— Kentucky, Alabama, Tennessee, etc.— shooting so poorly from deep.

The one positive note is, despite the poor shooting from beyond the arc, the Hogs are still putting up big points. The team is averaging 81.6 points per game this season and scored more than 90 in each of the past two games.

The Hogs have been aggressive in attacking the basket and getting to the free throw line. They’ve logged 26 or more free throw attempts in three of their last four games.

The Razorbacks have four more games to shore up any weaknesses before conference play begins at the end of December.
