📺 EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW
Man of the hour. Hear from Tramon Mark after hitting his game winner against the Aggies. Then, Samara Spencer is on the show to recap her huge game against Alabama.
📈 STOCK UP
🔺 Hitting The Mark. Arkansas men’s basketball had 7.8 seconds to win the game, and Tramon Mark needed just 6.7. Tramon went the length of the court and sank a pull up jumper with 1.1 seconds to give Arkansas a 78-77 victory over Texas A&M in front of thousands of fans so eager to see a Hogs win.
Tramon’s game-winner gave him a career-high 35 points, bettering his 34-point performance versus North Carolina earlier this season at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas. He was 8-of-15 from the field (2-of-3 from 3-point) and had career highs in free throws made (17) and attempts (22). He added five rebounds and tied his career-high with three blocked shots
Arkansas scored 46 first-half points, the second-most points scored in the first half this season. It was the sixth time to score at least 40 points in the first half this season. Arkansas is now 6-0 in such games
Arkansas returns to Bud Walton Arena on Saturday when the Razorbacks host South Carolina. Tipoff is set for Noon and the game will be televised on SEC Network.
🔺 2-3 Zone. Two of college baseball’s five major national polls are now out, and Arkansas is in the top three of both of them. The Diamond Hogs are ranked No. 3 in D1Baseball’s preseason poll, the program’s highest ranking in the publication’s preseason poll since 2022, when the Razorbacks held the No. 2 spot to start that season. The Razorbacks are ranked behind No. 1 Wake Forest and last year’s national runner-up No. 2 Florida in the poll. The Razorbacks took the No. 2 spot last week in Perfect Game’s preseason poll.
🔺 Back On Track. Last Friday’s Arkansas Invitational saw plenty of Arkansas track and field athletes score victories and world leading times. Here’s a rundown of what you may’ve missed:
Romaine Beckford won the high jump with a 7’2.5” clearance on a short, four-step approach, with teammate Kason O’Riley finishing second.
The 3,000m was won by Myles Richter with a time of 8:08.39, crossing the finish line nearly six full seconds before the runner up .
Reuben Reina registered a time of 3:59.91 as runner-up to alum Austen Dalquist (3:58.20). It was Reuben’s first sub-4 mile, and with his father (also named Reuben Reina) having done the same as well, they become the 15th father-son combo to each finish a mile in under four minutes.
Sophomore transfer Sanu Jallow became the third fastest collegian ever in the 600m with a time of 1:26.52.
Shawnti Jackson shined in her 400m debut with a winning time of 52.10, which moved her to No. 10 on the world U20 400m list, and No. 9 on the U.S. list.
🔺 To The Victors Goes The Spoils. Sanu’s victorious effort in the 600m earned her the M-F Athletic National Athlete of the Week accolade as announced by USTFCCCA on Tuesday. She was also the Co-SEC Runner of the Week while Shawnti was named Co-SEC Freshman of the Week for her impressive 400m debut
🔺 Z’s No. 1. If you’re a Razorback fan, you know who Matt Zimmerman is. From his work on the Razorback Daily alongside Quinn Grovey and as the analyst on men’s basketball radio broadcasts and select women’s basketball TV broadcasts, Z’s pretty much everywhere. Now we can all call him Arkansas Sportscaster of the Year after he earned the honor on Tuesday from the National Sports Media Association (NSMA). If you need more Z, check out his Hog Pod and find out what he’s willing to do for a lucky penny.
🔺 Pros On The Pitch. For the first time in program history, the Arkansas soccer program saw two of its players selected in the National Women’s Soccer League Draft. Anna Podojil and Bea Franklin were each taken in the third of four 14-pick rounds last Friday evening.
Anna was selected as the 35th pick overall by the Washington Spirit. Bea, who joined the Hogs in 2021 after playing her first two seasons at Notre Dame, was taken six picks later by the Chicago Red Stars.
