Arkansas Edges Alabama For Second Straight Road Win
TUSCALOOSA, ALA. (KFSM) – Last week Arkansas likely spoiled the NCAA Tournament hopes of LSU. Wednesday night, the Razorbacks might have done the same thing to Alabama.
Arkansas got 19 points from Moses Kingsley as they escaped Coleman Coliseum with a 62-61 road win, their second in as many outings.
Alabama was paced by Retin Obasohan with 32 points on 10-of-19 shooting but the Crimson Tide made just one field goal in the final 4:30 of the game and that was a long range 3-pointer by Obasohan as time expried.
The Crimson Tide were thought to be on the NCAA Tournament bubble after having five wins against top-50 teams in the RPI but have now lost three of their last four, including home games to Mississippi State and now Arkansas.
Arkansas has now won a season high four straight games and will finish the season above the .500 mark as they improved to 16-14. The Razorbacks face South Carolina Saturday in the regular season finale.
Anthlon Bell finished with 17 points for the Razorbacks while Dusty Hannahs struggled, especially in the second half, from the field and finished with 10 points.
