@RazorbackMBB Rewind: Packing A Scoring Punch

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Over the 10 days leading up to the National Championship game, ArkansasRazorbacks.com will highlight the top 10 stories and moments from the 2013-14 @RazorbackMBB season, in which the Razorbacks won 22 games advanced to the postseason in head coach Mike Anderson’s third season. 

Thursday’s story highlights Arkansas’ SEC-leading 80.1 points per game without having a player in the top 20 in scoring. The balanced scoring attack is the exact formula for Anderson’s #Fastest40 style of play. 

Offensive Quick Hits
Lead the SEC and rank 16th in the nation in scoring (80.1) with no players in the top 25 in the SEC
in scoring.
The 80.1 points per game is the most since 1997-98.
Four 100-point games is the same total produced by the rest of the SEC and the same total
produced over the program’s previous nine years combined.
Held below 70 points just five times compared to 147 Division I teams averaging below 70 points.
Turned in two of the top three scoring efforts by an SEC team so far this season. 
10 different players reached double figures while six players led the team in scoring.
Six different players scored 20 points in a game.
Bench averaged 32.2 points, supplied a double figure scorer in 26 games and has out-scored the
opposition 28 times resulting in a +12.5 per game margin.
Extended streak of game with a three-pointer to 838, good for the sixth-longest streak in the
nation.
Set a program SEC home record with 110 points against Ole Miss, good for its fourth-best offensive
performance in SEC action.
Equaled a program SEC record with 17 three-pointers against Ole Miss, tying the record set twice
vs. Auburn in 1995 & 1998.
110 points and 17 threes vs. Ole Miss were both SEC season-bests.
Averaged 86.7 points at Bud Walton Arena, highlighted by 80+ points in 13 of 19 games.

Balanced Bunch
Balance was the theme to Arkansas becoming one of just 17 Division I programs to average over 80 points per game, as 10 different players combined for 120 double figure scoring games. At least four players reached double figures in a game 18 times.

Top Scoring Games 
A remarkable six different players scored 20 points in a game this season, while eight players on the 2013-14 roster had a 20-point game their career.

Bell In Bunches

During his career-high and program NIT record 28-point performance against Indiana State, Bell scored the first 10 points of the game for the Razorbacks. Below is a breakdown of the sharpshooter’s scoring runs over the last seven games that has earned him the hashtag #BellinBunches :
