Razorback Brew 4/1: Sweep Dreams

Today, Arkansas sweeps LSU, women's golf takes The Bruzzy, and more!

Good Morning. What a weekend on The Hill! Baseball swept the reigning National Champs, softball got a win at No. 3 Georgia, and women’s golf won The Bruzzy.

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

🎥 Sit down with Scotty Thurman
⚾️ Gone sweepin’
🐗 And so much more! 


Thirty years ago, Scotty Thurman made the shot that sealed Arkansas basketball it’s National Championship. Thurman was a prolific high school and college basketball player. He was a freshman All-American, a 1,000-point scorer, and a 40-plus percent 3-point shooter. Despite his accolades and departing Arkansas a year early, he never played a game in the NBA.

We dive into the man off the court and reveal the untold stories about his life and career since the shot.


🔺 Sweep Dreams. The brooms broke out in Baum-Walker Stadium on Saturday as the Diamond Hogs completed the sweep of reigning National Champions, LSU. Arkansas is riding a 17-game winning streak at home, the longest in Baum-Walker history.

Friday night’s 4-3 win didn’t come drama-free. The game was knotted at 3-runs a piece when Christian Foutch, Gabe Gaeckle, and Stone Hewlett relieved the mound for five scoreless frames. The game went into extra innings, where Hudson White hit a walk-off double to score Will Edmunson and clinch the series win.

On Saturday, home runs were exchanged in the first inning as Wehiwa Aloy hit his sixth of the year. Peyton Stovall joined the fun with a two-run homer in the sixth to put the Hogs ahead, 7-4. Koty Frank earned his first win of the season in the 7-5 victory. 

🔺 Birdies At The Bruzzy. The 8th-ranked women’s golf team won The Bruzzy hosted by North Texas by 10 strokes. Four Razorbacks finished top-20 individually. Kendall Todd tied for 2nd-place, Kajal Mistry tied for 4th, Gio Fernandez tied for a career-best 8th-place finish, Miriam Ayora tied for 14th, and Reagan Zibilski landed in 20th. The Hogs led the field with the best par 4 and par 5 averages, as well as the second-most birdies with 42. Arkansas now has three wins this season.

🔺 All Split Up. The Hogs and the Dawgs are even in the softball series being played in Athens, Ga. The Razorbacks took down No. 3 Georgia on Saturday thanks to a Morgan Leinstock complete game and a Bri Ellis three-run bomb. Arkansas won the series opener, 3-2. Georgia came out strong on Sunday, recording 11 hits to win the game 8-2. The top of the Razorback lineup combined for two runs and three hits. They’ll conclude the series this evening with a rubber match at 6 pm on SEC Network.

🔺 Comeback Kings & Queens. Both the men’s and women’s tennis teams got 4-3 wins over No. 25 Auburn and No. 63 Kentucky, respectively. The men’s team went down 2-3 when Melvin Manuel tied things up. Karlo Kajin won on court six to secure the comeback and the upset. For the women’s team, Morgan Cross tied things up after a 3-1 deficit and Kacie Harvey slammed the door for the road win! Both teams will face LSU this weekend.

🔺 Relay Records. They say that records are made to be broken, and that’s what the women’s 4×200m relay crew did at the Texas Relays. The group of Nickisha Pryce, Amber Anning, Kaylyn Brown, and Rosey Effiong posted a time of 1:31.11 to break the school record and win the race. Arkansas is now the eighth-fastest school in collegiate history. The 4×400m relay group and distance medley crew also won this weekend. Hear from Coach Chris Johnson after the weekend.


Tuskers Tavern has a full-length bar with lots of seating and a quaint, library or living room type vibe to relax and wind down. There’s also a small patio for those days when the sun is calling your name. The bar is here to provide another option for those on the east side of town to gather in a comfortable, upscale atmosphere. Whether it’s for a drink after work or you want to meet friends for a bite to eat and connect – Tuskers is the perfect place.


Bubba Carpenter is on the show to recap the sweep of the defending champs, LSU! We’ll also talk some softball down in Georgia as the Razorbacks try to win the series tonight.
