The Razorbacks trailed 55-34 at halftime and were unable to recover. Arkansas shot 32-of-67 from the field, 10-of-26 on 3-pointers and 13-of-22 at the free throw line. Isaiah Joe led the way for Arkansas with 23 points on 7-of-15 shooting including 7-of-13 from 3-point distance plus 2-of-2 at the free throw line. He also recorded four rebounds and two steals.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The Razorbacks are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games overall. Arkansas is 1-4 ATS in its last games overall.
The Rebels are 5-0 ATS in their last five Saturday games. Ole Miss is 6-1 ATS in its last seven home games.
The Rebels were on a roll before their last game and I think a lot of that can be chalked up to a letdown following an emotional win as underdogs at rival Mississippi State. In comes a struggling Razorbacks squad that isn't very good offensively and lately has struggled on the defensive end. I am betting on a big bounceback effort by Ole Miss.
