SEC Basketball Scores – 11/25/10

It’s not often you’ll see the following sentence:

“The SEC went undefeated in basketball last night… except for Kentucky.”

But that’s what happened yesterday.  Five league teams were in action and only John Calipari’s young Wildcats were upended.

* Vanderbilt crushed Grambling State 92-59 behind the first double-double of Festus Ezeli’s career.

* Rotnei Clarke scored 19 points to lead Arkansas past Southeast Missouri State 66-56.  The attendance was 10,636 which is tick above the 6,000 UA had been averaging. 

* Trent Johnson won his 200th career game as LSU dispatched the Centenary Gentlemen 78-36.

* Bruce Pearl and Tennessee reached the finals of the NIT Season Tip-Off with a 77-72 win over Virginia Commonwealth (coached by former Florida assistant Shaka Smart).  The Vols will face Villanova tomorrow.

* Calipari said his team was “outplayed, out-coached, out-everythinged” in an 84-67 loss to UConn in the finals of the Maui Invitational.  It was Connecticut’s second takedown of a Top 10 foe in as many days.

Powell Likely Out Tonight

Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas forward Marshawn Powell isn’t dressed out in warm-ups tonight and it doesn’t appear the sophomore will play in the game against Florida Gulf Coast. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Powell ran with a limp for much of the second half in last Thursday’s win over Grambling State. He suffered a broken foot in August and played sparingly in one of the team’s two exhibition games.

Arkansas is also without forward Michael Sanchez, who will miss most – if not all – of the nonconference season with a foot injury.

Small Turnout for Opener

Arkansas
Content provided by The Slophouse.

FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas won its basketball season opener last night over Grambling State, but the crowd wouldn’t have even come close to filling up the old Barnhill Arena.

An announced crowd of 6,404 fans showed up for the 75-52 win – the third smallest crowd in Bud Walton Arena history. Attendance has steadily dropped for Razorbacks basketball in recent years and Arkansas is coming off back-to-back losing seasons. But to see only a quarter of the seats occupied for the season opener still came as a bit of a shock.

Bud Walton Arena has a listed capacity of 19,200 and is one of the five largest on-campus home venues in the country.

Arkansas ranked in the top 15 nationally of home attendance for the first 16 years of the building, but dropped to 25th last season with an average attendance of 13,182 per game.

In the Beginning: Arkansas 75, Grambling State 52

Arkansas
Content provided by Razorback Expats.

After the last couple of seasons, if there’s any fanbase that has learned to not take pre-conference games against seemingly unthreatening teams for granted, it’s the Razorback fanbase.

Tonight, though, we breathe easy: the Hogs cruised to a 75 to 52 victory over Grambling State after taking a 20-point lead into halftime. Rotnei Clarke was the hero of the evening: he drained five of 10 three-point attempts and made all of his free throws to end the game with 20 points. After that, no one’s stat line jumps out at you. Balance was the theme of the evening, as six Hogs scored 7 points apiece and two others scored 5 points apiece. 

One thing about the box score that does jump out at you, though, is this: these Hogs have some seriously cool names: Mardracus Wade, Julysses Nobles and Kikko Haydar. Our favorite Prussian general/fullback Van Stumon officially has some competition for the coolest name on the U of A campus.

Clarke Leads Hogs to Opening Win

Arkansas
Content provided by The Slophouse.

FAYETTEVILLE - Rotnei Clarke scored a game-high 20 points to lift Arkansas past Grambling State 75-52 Thursday night at Bud Walton Arena.

A year after hitting 13 three-pointers in a school-record 51-point effort in the season opener, Clarke drained five baskets from beyond the arc against the Tigers. The Razorbacks won their 16th consecutive season opener.

Arkansas jumped to a 15-3 lead and never trailed. That lead was 42-22 at halftime and grew to as many as 26 points during the second half.

Twelve different players logged playing time for the Razorbacks. Clarke was the only player to score in double-figures. Six others scored seven points apiece.
