2-11 from the field * 1-3 from three * 5 turnovers * 3 assist and scored a total of 7 points.
I wasn’t sure if Toney could stay in front of him, man was that stupid thinking.
We’ve had some great defenders through the years. My favorite of all time was Clint McDaniel but Clint was allowed to hand check. I can say now that Toney is my all time favorite defender for the Razorbacks.
This young man just goes out there and gets it done every night. Where would we be without him? Was he this good of a defender at Pitt?
When we came out tooooo fast and became winded (as did the Zags), we learned a lesson regarding tempo. Play within yourself; fast, but not sprints. Not sure if Duke has learned that, but I give the tempo edge to the Hogs.
Last night right before half both teams were totally gassed. We brought the ball down and all 10 players just stopped. It was the first time I have seen Muss call a TO for a rest. Amazing they can play that hard.
JD and Au’Diese were terrific defensively. I rewatched the game to track shots defended.
Gonzaga was 2/8 from the floor and 0/1 from three when Au’Diese was the nearest Arkansas defender, and the Bulldogs were 1/9 overall and 1/5 from three vs. JD. Those two were great.
One more thing, and I mentioned this on a podcast that should be out today, JD was very good contesting shots from behind after trailing his matchup over the top of dribble handoffs and ball screens. He made a few shooters feel him even when they couldn’t or didn’t see him.
