JONESBORO, Ark. — From watching the Razorbacks this season, it’s seemed that every team they play can’t miss from the three-point line. For instance, LSU shot 15-30 (50.0%) from behind the arc today.
So I decided to do some homework.
In SEC play (4-5), the Hogs are atrocious at guarding the three. In all but two games, the opponent shot better than their yearly percentage from behind the arc.
Have a look for yourself.
3PT Percentage by SEC Team – Season, versus Arkansas
|Team||Season 3pt Percentage||3pt Percentage vs Arkansas|
|Mississippi State||29.9||19.0 (4-21)|
Total: 39.5 (19-48)
|Ole Miss||33.2||37.9 (11-29)|
|Texas A&M||32.7||38.5 (10-26)|
Season (SEC Play): 99-245 (40.4)
If Arkansas expects to win games in the Southeastern Conference, this trend cannot be allowed to continue.
