  • Arkansas Holds Off South Carolina To Reach SEC Quarterfinals

SC only cashed in on 10 of 16 free-throw chances for 62.5 percent. After losing to Mike Anderson's team to open the SEC season, the Vols responded in a big way in St. Louis Saturday. The Vols scored 48 points in the first half after only scoring 62 points total in the entire game against Mississippi State in the quarterfinals.

SC missed three shots on its final possession. "I'm just so proud of those guys". "Our guys showed some resilience, some resolve with defensive stops and making free throws".

Arkansas pushed the pace with 7 points off of fast breaks versus an opposing 5 points off of fast breaks.

After trading blows the first three and-a-half minutes of the second half, Arkansas went up 5 points. The game tips off at 1 p.m.

"You can see he's oozing with potential", Anderson said.

"From what I've been hearing, the excitement from the seniors, it was a real big win", said Arkansas 6-11 freshman Daniel Gafford, who had 16 points and 12 rebounds.

When the Razorbacks and Vols played to start their SEC schedule earlier this season, Bone went off for 21 points, six rebounds, and five assists. The Rebels fouled Frank Booker with 13.4 seconds remaining to send him to the free-throw line.

"They've got a dynamic, high-powered team", South Carolina Coach Frank Martin said of the Razorbacks.

Ole Miss (12-20, 5-13) played loose in the game and was within an 84-81 striking distance of possibly sending the game into overtime.

The Gamecocks had 19 turnovers Thursday after having 18 in their 81-65 loss at Arkansas on February 6.

Barford pushed his newfound shooting ability to its limits on Thursday night, and he responded when the Razorbacks needed him the most in a 69-64 win over SC in the second round of the Southeastern Conference Tournament.

The Razorbacks are 8-2 in their past 10 games.

While being more rested obviously should be in Arkansas' favor tonight, there is something to be said for establishing tournament momentum before your opponent. "That's the difference in the game".

Barford scored 19 of his 27 points in the second half and pulled down 10 rebounds in 32 minutes of action. SC had a 42-29 overall rebounding advantage. But this is also a testament to Rick Barnes, who made sure Tennessee basketball could withstand such drama this year. Arkansas ranks 153rd in blocks allowed per game (3.6). Gafford then got a one-handed rebound dunk, Macon scored on a bank shot and Adrio Bailey scored on a layup with an assist from Gafford. SC junior forward Chris Silva (15 points, 11 rebounds) TURNING POINT Barford scored five consecutive points on a three-pointer and steal and layup to push the Razorbacks' lead from 61-59 to 66-59 with 2:52 left.
