Razorback Brew 3/7: Curtain call

Today, Arkansas women's hoops play in the SEC Tournament.

Good Morning. The Hardwood Hogs got it done one last time for the season in Bud Walton Arena last night, and the ladies are out on the east coast to start the SEC Tournament. You can already feel the Madness of March…

Here’s what we have for in today’s Brew:

🎥 Hooping it up
🏀 Victorious home finale
🐗 And so much more! 


Tourney time. As the Razorback women’s basketball team gets set to play in the SEC Tournament this afternoon, catch up with the latest hoops content on Hogs+.

🏀  Samara Spencer has been a constant presence during her three seasons at Arkansas. Hogs+ host Tera Talmadge sat down with Spencer to talk about her journey, what's driven her, and what's next with one season left on the hill in the latest episode of the Hog Pod.

🏀 Freshman guard Taliah Scott burst onto the scene for the Razorbacks this season. Growing up with a D1 basketball player for a father and learning from Steph Curry himself, Scott has built her game into one that rivals anyone in the college game. Hear how she dominated her first year in Fayetteville in this episode of the Hog Pod.

🏀 The concept of 'trash talk' can be divisive, so why not hit up the experts on the floor? Makayla Daniels and Sasha Goforth from the Arkansas women's basketball team give us their take on if it's catty or competitive in this episode of That’s the Tea.


🔺 Curtain Call. Arkansas men’s basketball sent its seniors off with one last win in Bud Walton Arena with a 94-83 victory over LSU.

Khalif Battle continued his scoring spree by scoring 29 points, Makhi Mitchell had 19, and El Ellis finished with 16. Khalif’s 141 points over his last four-games is the most an SEC hooper has scored in a four-game span over the last 20 years. Kentucky’s Jodie Meeks had the previous record with 134 points over four games in 2009, and former Razorback Mason Jones put up 129 over a four-game span in 2020.

The Razorbacks close the regular season on Saturday, March 9 at Alabama. Tipoff is set for 11am and the game will be televised on ESPN.

🔺 Last Stop Before Madness. The Arkansas women’s basketball team received the 10th seed at the 2024 SEC Women’s Basketball Championship and are set to face Auburn, who enter the week as the seventh seed, in the second round. The two teams will tipoff on Thursday, March 7 at 5pm from the Bon Secours Wellness Center in Greenville, South Carolina. Coverage of the game will be broadcast on SEC Network

🔺 Homegrown to Win. Arkansas gymnast Lauren Williams has a simple goal: return to nationals. But she doesn’t want to go alone. She wants all the Gymbacks to join her. Lauren opens up on what it’s like to represent the Hogs as an Arkansas native, the intricacies of picking out floor music, and much more in this episode of the Flipping Out Podcast.

🔺 Ending Strong. The sixth-ranked Arkansas women’s golf team put up a team score of 280 (4-under) on the final day of the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate to finish in fifth. Arkansas put together the lowest final round (tied with 30th-ranked Mississippi State) score thanks to three individual rounds at par or under on Wednesday, including a career-low 4-under 67 from Kendall Todd. The Hogs finished the tournament with a 7-over 859 (284-295-280), marking Arkansas’ best finish in their 11 years playing at Long Cove Club and the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate.

🔺 Leading the Way. Winning a fifth consecutive conference indoor championship produced a fifth consecutive SEC Indoor Coach of the Year honor for Arkansas men’s head coach Chris Bucknam, the 12th indoor accolade in his 16th year with the Razorbacks. Overall, this is Bucknam’s 31st SEC Coach of the Year honor. The 12 indoor honors are followed by 11 in cross country and eight during the outdoor season.

Joining Coach Bucknam is first year Arkansas women’s head coach Chris Johnson, who earned his first SEC Indoor Coach of the Year honor following the Razorbacks convincing victory at the conference championships. An assistant coach with Arkansas while the Razorbacks built a nine-year winning streak at the SEC Indoor Championships, Johnson added a 10th consecutive title and the 14th overall indoors in his initial year as head coach.
