While range of Isaiah Joe is well known and seen on live TV, there is another division one guard in Arkansas that has similar or better range. It is the 5-9 PG Marquis Nowell of UALR.
I have seen him regularly pull up in transition from 25 to 30 feet and swish it. Last night Marquis hit back to back transition threes, one from 30 feet and one from 35 feet. And minutes earlier, he had hit another 30 footer, which was a dagger three to snuff out Louisiana Monroe rally.
Incidentally, UALR clinched a tie for the Sunbelt title in Darrell Walker’s second year. They were a preseason 11th pick. UALR now has two key players eligible that did not play against Arkansas. They look like one of those dangerous mid-major NCAAT first round opponent,
You could see when UALR played the Hogs that Darrell had assembled a complete team with talent at every position. It was not an easy win for us at all. I think he had one or two even more talented players either injured or ineligible as well. I think Mr. Walker may be moving on up soon.
