Arkansas Basketball

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. (KFSM) – After starting the season with three straight wins at Bud Walton Arena, Arkansas was hoping to continue the early success and put five years of road struggles behind them. Instead, the Razorbacks were blown out at Minnesota.

Arkansas shot 28 percent in the first half and trailed the Golden Gophers by as much as 20 points in the first period and could not rally as Minnesota coasted to a 85-71 win.

The Razorbacks have lost 38 of their 53 road games since the start of the 2011-12 season, Mike Anderson’s first year as head coach.

Arkansas was plagued with foul trouble and turnovers as the Razorbacks gave away possession 20 times in the first 35 minutes of the game.

Dusty Hannahs led Arkansas with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting while Jaylen Barford and Daryl Macon each finished with 12. Moses Kingsley finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out.  The Razorbacks bench scored just 12 points while the Gophers’ reserves scored 30 points including 12 from Arkansas native Eric Curry. Amir Coffey led Minnesota with 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting while the Gophers hit 9-of-15 from 3-point range.

Arkansas returns home on Monday as they host Mount St. Mary’s at 7:00 p.m.
