LIVE UPDATES: Tramon Marks the Spot, Practically Saves Hogs’ Season vs Aggies

Arkansas vs Texas A&M

FAYETTEVILLE — Temperatures in Northwest Arkansas only recently surpassed the Razorbacks’ SEC win total, but Eric Musselman is still hoping for an energized crowd for the Arkansas vs Texas A&M game.

With snow and ice still on some roads, the Razorbacks released some $10 general admission tickets ahead of the 8 p.m. CT tipoff. They are also allowing all fans to move down to open seats in the lower bowl following the under-16 media timeout.

It’s worth noting that the weather is also a convenient excuse for what was likely to be reduced attendance anyways. On top of the late tip on a weeknight, Arkansas (9-7, 0-3 SEC) has lost three straight games by double digits. In fact, the combined 64-point margin makes it the worst three-game skid in school history.

The Razorbacks will be trying to break out of the icy streak against a Texas A&M team coming off its breakthrough moment, a home upset of No. 6 Kentucky for its first SEC win of the season.

LIVE UPDATES – Arkansas vs Texas A&M

15:51, 1H – Arkansas 6, Texas A&M 0

The Aggies have missed their first six shots and committed four fouls so far. Arkansas also leads the rebounding battle 6-2 so far, which is significant considering how good of a rebounding team Texas A&M is. The Aggies will be shooting free throws with a chance to get on the board when play resumes.

12:51, 1H – Arkansas 15, Texas A&M 3

Out of the U16 media timeout, Hayden Hefner air balled a free throw. He made the second to end the shutout, but the Aggies still aren’t playing well. They’re 1 of 10 from the floor, including 0 of 4 from beyond the arc, while Arkansas is 6 of 10. Menifield drained a 3, leading to Buzz Williams calling a timeout.

11:28, 1H – Arkansas 17, Texas A&M 5

Arkansas’ scoring has been pretty evenly distributed. Brazile, Davis and Mark each have 4 points, while Menifield has 3 and Lawson has 2. The Aggies, meanwhile, are just 2 of 12 from the floor.

7:58, 1H – Arkansas 30, Texas A&M 10

This doesn’t even look like the same Arkansas team from the last three games. Davenport has drained a couple of 3s and the Hogs’ lead has grown to 20. Arkansas is now 4 of 7 from deep and 10 of 16 from the floor, while the Aggies are just 4 of 18. Arkansas is also still plus-7 on the boards.

3:42, 1H – Arkansas 37, Texas A&M 20

The rebounding battle tightened up over that last stretch, with Arkansas now just plus-1. The Aggies’ best offense has been to throw up a brick and hope a teammate tips in it, as they have grabbed eight offensive rebounds leading to 10 second-chance points. Three of those offensive boards were on the same possession and led to a bucket. Texas A&M is still shooting just 22.6% (7 of 31).

HALF – Arkansas 46, Texas A&M 32

After leading by 19 with 3:42 left in the half, Arkansas allowed Texas A&M to somewhat get back into the game down the stretch. The Hogs were aided by Brazile getting fouled with 0.4 seconds left, though, and he made both free throws to make it a 14-point game.

15:42, 2H – Arkansas 49, Texas A&M 39

The Aggies cut the deficit to single digits with a 3-pointer, but Mark answered with an old-fashioned 3-point play. He’s up to 19 points. That’s the Hogs’ only bucket so far this half, as they’re 1 of 5 since halftime. Texas A&M, meanwhile, is 3 of 7.

13:06, 2H – Arkansas 50, Texas A&M 46

It’s been a tale of two halves. The Aggies have outscored Arkansas 14-4 so far after halftime, shooting 5 of 11. The Razorbacks are just 1 of 8 in the second half. Wade Taylor IV just made a 3 to cut the lead to four, prompting an Eric Musselman timeout. Taylor has 25 points, with 13 coming after halftime.

11:55, 2H – Arkansas 52, Texas A&M 48

The Hogs are now 1 of 10 from the floor in the second half, including 0 of 5 from deep. They’re also just 4 of 9 from the line. Tramon Mark has 22 points for the Hogs.

8:32, 2H – Arkansas 65, Texas A&M 57

The Aggies made it a three-point game, but Arkansas answered with a layup by Ellis and 3 by Mark, who is up to 27 points. Taylor has 29 for Texas A&M. Buzz Williams called a timeout after the latter of those shots.

4:02, 2H – Arkansas 70, Texas A&M 63

It’s been a ref show, with 26 combined fouls and 36 combined free throws this half alone. Devo Davis received a Flagrant 2 and was ejected after a play in which he appeared to kick the Texas A&M defender in the groin. All that said, the Hogs are clinging to a 7-point lead.

FINAL – Arkansas 78, Texas A&M 77

Wade Taylor IV hit a 3 with 7.6 seconds left to give Texas A&M its first lead of the game, but Tramon Mark drove and got a shot to fall with seconds left and give Arkansas the win. Taylor finished with 41 points and Mark had 35.



Starting Lineups
