Team Arkansas lost to Challenge ALS in the Round of 32 by 69-62. ALS outscored Arkansas 16-2 to win the game with three point shooting blitz by Harris and some stingy defense on the three point line. Arkansas bigs are not the offensive players who could take advantage of that.
A big coaching mistake was not playing CJ Jones more than few minutes, UALR’s Josh Hagins has been off with his shot in both games. In the first game, Coach Patel sat him down and played CJ instead. CJ scored 16 including the game winner and was a big reason for the win. In this game, Coach Patel stayed with Hagins and paid for it.
