GAME RECAP

The old phrase “basketball is a game of runs” applied to this game today. Arkansas started off super slow as they allowed Butler to obtain a 21-2 lead with at the 13 minute mark.

 

However, the Razorbacks did not lie roll over on their bellies like the Butler Bulldogs mascot that has been banned from the NCAA Tournament. Thanks to Daryl Macon the Razorbacks only found themselves down by five at half.

Despite a great second half effort by Arkansas the Butler Bulldogs proved to be a better team. With five minutes left in the game Arkansas was forced to go into panic mode leading to Butler taking a huge lead near the end.

The result a resounding Butler victory, 79-62.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Senior forward Kelan Martin had a great day for the Bulldogs. He scored 27 points on the day and pulled down nine rebounds. Martin’s career will continue at least one more game.

In college I stuck to intramural basketball. Although not much of a scorer, I liked to consider myself a real gritty “bring your lunch pale to work” power forward with playing style being described as a mix between Reggie Evans and Rick Mahorn. I am a lifelong Denver Broncos and New York Yankees fan, a skeptical yet optimistic New Orleans Pelicans fan, and above all else a die hard Ohio State fan. @DSmythTheMyth18
