No 2. Ole Miss had no answer for JD Notae
The senior guard had 25 in the win in Oxford. It’s the fourth time Notae has notched 25 points or more in a game this season. It’s his highest output for points since scoring 31 in the loss at Texas A&M on Jan. 8.
The leading scorer in the SEC showed why he is so dangerous as a scorer. He was able to knock down layups, jumpshots and three-pointers—scoring at all three levels.
Notae was also good for five assists and three boards. He’s been ridiculously fun to watch this season.
No 1. Jaylin Williams continues to elevate his NBA Draft stock
The reigning SEC Player of the Week showed the viewing audience on the SEC Network why he’s an elite-level player. The Fort Smith, Ark. native, should be drawing the interest of NBA scouts with the way he’s been playing as of late.
The 6’10” sophomore has been averaging a double-double during the team’s five-game winning streak. He’s not afraid to sacrifice his body and draw chargers regularly in-games.
The Razorbacks are incredibly lucky to have him on this team, but it may not last after this season. Williams has NBA-level talent and should be coveted by a ton of NBA teams. It’s something to keep an eye on as the season progresses and Williams improves his game.
