Disappointing loss tonite to a team promoting NFTs and with Malik Monk as an investor. I still don’t know, or care, what NFTs are. I just know they are a scam, and I would much prefer to hold physical gold.
If Team Arkansas ever wants to win this thing, they need a real coach. I would put it in Scotty Thurman’s hands. Where are Qualls, Kingsley, and Macon playing now, and how much is the Big 3 paying Iso Joe?
If they want to make a serious run, they would need to get together sooner and actually play together as a team. I don’t think you blame the coach in this type of tournament, he can point some things out but no reason for these players to listen, looked like guys playing “street ball” to me. Get a regional in Fayetteville and get a lil money and team organization behind the guys.
They had Dusty and CJ Jones for shooting. The two did not shoot well during a stretch where the Gutter guys ran up a double digit lead. From that point on, Arkansas always played from behind, came close but couldn’t get over the hump.
What surprised me is lack of scoring from Whitt. What happened to that driving, fade away, almost automatic midrange jumper? Did not see it.
There was a stretch in his freshman year, where every attempt he made from the three, looked like it was going to go in. But later he became inconsistent leading to limitation of his minutes and that leading to his transfer,
