On the toughness and rim protection of Makhi Mitchell

“Makhi Mitchell is as tough as anybody in our conference. I don’t think he’s going to back down from anybody,” Eric Musselman said this week.

Wrote on the toughness and consistent rim protection that has keyed Mitchell’s post-Maui emergence for Arkansas:


I really like Mitchell. He is better than I thought he would be. We need to be getting the ball to him in the paint a whole lot more than we do because he has got very good touch with either hand.
I like his physicalness and we will definitely need it tonight for sure because it’s going to be a knockdown drag out
