Big Road Win

Yeah Arkansas is terrible this year, but I will call the win by the Rebels tonight a big road win for the team. They took the Pigs to overtime and outscored them in second half and OT. It was a outstanding game for Will Boggan and Terrico White. Boggan had 7 assists and 16 points with White contributing 29. The deal with this game is that David Huertas did not play due to injury. Many have said this team can not win without David, but they played pretty darn well without him. Many times throughout the year it has seemed that Huertas is a distraction. Tonight they did it without him.

The Rebs are a win away from finishing the season with a .500 conference record. With the way this season has gone, it will be a pretty big accomplishment. The SEC Tourney should be interesting for everyone, and the NIT should be considered an accomplishment. Say what you want but AK and his staff have done a great job.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Terrico White scored 25 of his 29 points after halftime to lead Ole Miss to a 98-91 win at Arkansas in overtime Wednesday night.
The Rebels (16-13, 7-8), playing without injured guard David Huertas, trailed by 12 in the first half before rallying. Ole Miss led 73-66 after an 11-5 run that included three 3-pointers by White. Then it was Arkansas' turn to bounce back. The Razorbacks (14-14, 2-13 Southeastern Conference) took an 84-82 lead on Stefan Welsh's 3-pointer with 52.5 seconds left.
White tied it on a drive with 32.3 seconds remaining, and the teams headed to overtime after Welsh's 3-pointer in the final seconds rattled out.
Michael Washington opened the scoring for the Razorbacks in overtime, but the Rebels answered with a 9-0 run. Zach Graham scored seven consecutive points during that decisive stretch.
Graham added a career-high 20 points, while Will Bogan also scored a career high with 16 points in the road win.
