Postgame Thoughts: Hogs 84, Providence 72 … idence-72/

Good article Scottie…yes the team played well. Do you think the experimental rule changes helped us?

Thank you. And definitely. I don’t know that the extended 3-point line favored anyone, but Providence already being a poor 3-point shooting team - last in Big East at 29 percent - then having to move back more than a foot, that didn’t help. The widened lane opened things up for Arkansas offensively. The fouls resetting at the 10-minute mark, too, allowed the game to flow much, much better than usual.
