TURNING POINT OF THE GAME

An eight-point swing early in the second half was just what the Razorbacks needed, as the Paladins continued to try and battle their way back into the game. McKenzie Adams and Brookshit back-to-back threes, then Brooks earned two more down low to add to the momentum shift. The sequence helped Arkansas push its lead to 54-29 and take control with 15:35 left to play in the game.
