Three point shooting is still an Achilles’ heel for the Arkansas basketball team

The Razorbacks just can’t seem to get the a hold on three point shooting. They are still allowing their opponents to have plenty of looks a shooting threes.

Charlotte shot 24 threes and made 6, while the Hogs attempted 13 and made mustered just three makes.

This is a worrisome trend that must be corrected before conference season begins. The Hogs have had problems making shots from beyond the arc all season and the game against Charlotte was no different.

Notae takes the most threes per game by far and he’s got to get better at the long ball. Fortunately, he’s finding other ways to score points, but once the Hogs face tougher defenses, it’ll be a big problem.

Notae was 1 for 6 from three against the 49ers. He’s shooting a career-worst 27.9% from three this season.

The star for the Razorbacks has just two games in which he’s shot better than 34% from beyond the arc, which happened to be the first two games on the season.
