Razorback Brew 12/18: That's more like it

Arkansas basketball is coming off a successful weekend in North Little Rock.

Good morning. We love a victory Monday, especially when it’s celebrating TWO wins for the Razorbacks. We called those Hogs down in North Little Rock, and we’ll break down the wins for your Monday morning.

Now, what has all been mixed into today’s Brew?

🎥 Diving back into the vault
🏀 Dominated the (Little) Rock
🐗 And so much more!


Arkansas triple jumper Jaydon Hibbert quickly made his mark in the world of track & field this year. At the age of just 18, the Jamaica native broke multiple records and even topped a few Razorback greats on his way to a Bowerman Award.

In this previous episode of Tuesdays with Tera, we sit down with Jaydon to go over his record breaking jump at the SEC Outdoor Championships, and learn how he got to this point in his career. Plus, he gets in the kitchen to show off his cooking skills and whip up his favorite childhood dish.


Quinn Grovey is the only starting quarterback to record back-to-back 10-win seasons in Arkansas football history. But his journey is so much bigger than what he achieved on the field.

In this Hog Pod Vault episode, we sit down with the Razorback great to get his story, including how he left the state of Oklahoma to come to Arkansas, how his broadcast career started, and his relationship with Frank Broyles.

🎥 Take a deep dive into Grovey’s career and legacy with the Hogs+ original film “Growing Up Grovey”, a three-part series about football, family, and enduring one of the most baffling diseases known to man.


🔺 That’s More Like It. A game of significant runs saw the Arkansas men’s basketball team hold off Lipscomb in a 69-66 victory Saturday afternoon in North Little Rock.

Tramon Mark led the Hogs in scoring with 17 off the bench, with 12 coming from 3-pointers alone. Makhi Mitchell added 12 points of his own and was closely followed by Jalen Graham, who put up 11 points and a +/- of 8. Keyon Menifield Jr. also made his debut in a Razorback uniform at 11:46 in the first half. He missed the first 10 games of the season before getting a waiver from the NCAA on Friday and became immediately eligible. He scored his first basket on an offensive putback at 4:06.

Arkansas will be back at Bud Walton Arena on Thursday, Dec. 21, to host Abilene Christian. Tipoff is set for 6pm and the game will be telecast on SEC Network.

🔺 Samford & Sonned. Earlier on Saturday in Simmons Bank Arena, the Arkansas women’s basketball team took care of business with a 68-54 win over Samford. Arkansas forced 21 turnovers, including 11 in the first quarter alone, and used a 10-2 run to close out the third quarter to secure a comfortable cushion for the final period. Arkansas dominated in points in the paint with 28 compared to the Bulldogs’ 12, and the Hogs were led by Samara Spencer’s 20 points, her second 20-piece of the year. Check out the game’s highlights here.

🔺 19th Hole Bound. John Daly and John Daly II wrapped up their ninth PNC Championship appearance Sunday and locked in their fifth top-five finish. The Arkansas father-son duo scored -19 under in a tie with Team Cink, Team Lehman, Team Kuchar, and Team Woods featuring Tiger and his son Charlie. Click here to hear John Daly II’s story as an ascending golfer for the Razorbacks in this episode of The Hog Pod.

🔺 End Zone Party. Former Arkansas tight end Hunter Henry has six touchdowns on the season for the New England Patriots—three of them have come in the last two weeks alone. Henry hauled in his fifth score of the season Sunday along with 66 yards on seven receptions, the latter two being season highs for the former second-round pick. He’s now tied for second in trips to the end zone at his position. Be sure to vote for Henry and all your favorite Pro Hogs to make the Pro Bowl here.

🔺 Accepting The Hardware. Arkansas triple jumper Jaydon Hibbert accomplished an unprecedented feat by winning The Bowerman Award as an 18-year old freshman this past week. It’s a tremendous milestone for Jayden and the Arkansas track and field program as a whole, and it did not come without plenty of help and guidance along the way.
