Razorbacks Head Coach Eric Musselman was absolutely fed-up with the officiating

Muss had been riding the referees pretty hard throughout the game. But it all came to a boiling point at the 3:30 mark in the second half.

Musselman was furious that the officials did not call a foul on Oklahoma after an Arkansas player and a Sooner were tied up on the floor for a jump ball.

The Head Coach came unglued and had to be restrained by his coaching staff.

Ultimately his son Michael Musselman had to walk him to the tunnel and into the locker room. At that point, the game was already lost. There was no time for the Hogs to make a comeback.

But the officiating only goes so far. The officials don’t cause the Hogs to shoot poorly or rebound poorly. Those things are self-inflected.

The Hogs, now 9-1, will now turn their attention to a game against Hofstra, set for Dec. 18 at Simmons Bank Arena in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
