Macon Leads Razorbacks Past Troy In Little Rock

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KFSM)-- Senior guard Daryl Macon put on a show in front of his home crowd Saturday, leading Arkansas to a 88-63 win over Troy. The Razorbacks improve 8-2 overall.

Daryl Macon showed off his shooting abilities in front of a sold out crowd in Verizon Arena, scoring 25 points including 15 in the first half. The senior finished 8-of-14 from the field and 5-for-9 from three point range. Fellow Little Rock native Anton Beard added 11 points and freshman Daniel Gafford had 10 for the Razorbacks.

"I just wanted to go out there and give it my all knowing it was my last game I did want to play well but that wasn't on my mind," said Macon. "I just had to let the game come to me and it did. It felt good to finally find my shot again but it was a big shoot out to my teammates for finding me getting me those good looks it felt good going out there tonight good environment packed house tonight. I was shocked that it was sold out so it was a great environment tonight."

Arkansas was able to overcome a sluggish start trailing very early on, but Macon scored eight straight points to give the Razorbacks the lead that they never relinquished.

Next Arkansas returns home to face Oral Roberts on Tuesday night.
