JD Notae, the SEC’s leading scorer with 18.6 ppg, will have a favorable match-up against Ole Miss— a team that’s given up 71.4 ppg during the past five games.
Ole Miss has a deep roster, occasionally going as much as 10-deep with players seeing game action. The Razorbacks are going to have to remain diligent and stick to the game plan.
The Razorbacks are playing great basketball right now. The team’s confidence is at an all-time high and things are finally starting to click on a team that’s relying heavily on transfer players to lead the team.
Three of the team’s top scorers this season are all in their first season with the Hogs, having played with other college teams last season.
It’s taken some time for them to build chemistry, but it looks like these Razorbacks are rolling.
