I was looking over some of the HoopLens numbers from last week’s game and found something really interesting: Arkansas did not give up a single 3-point make against Ole Miss and Texas A&M with Daniel Gafford off the floor. The Rebels and Aggies were a combined 0 of 14 from deep when he sat. I think that’s a sign Arkansas’ bench guys - Trey and Gabe especially - are doing a tremendous job bringing effort and bringing a defensive mindset whether Gafford is in foul trouble like he was early against Ole Miss or taking a breather. Props to those guys.
That is interesting. I would have guessed a reverse of that. Usually we give up a 3 when the opponent’s guard feeds the post and our wing player sags in to double up. I would think they would need to double up more when Trey is in and Gafford is off the floor.
