Post-game notes from the Oklahoma game

Arkansas 96, No. 4 Oklahoma 88

Arkansas is now 10-1 and has won eight straight.

The Razorbacks are now 78-103 all-time in games against ranked opponents, including 38-18 (.679) at home. That record includes a 14-29 mark against teams ranked in the top five, including a 7-3 (.700) record at home.

Prior to Tuesday’s win over the No. 4 Sooners, Arkansas last win over a top five team was just last year in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament in Atlanta with the 92-91 victory over No. 4 Tennessee. The most recent home win over a top five team was Feb. 20, 2002, with the 67-59 victory over No. 5 Alabama.

Michael Washington had 24 points and 11 rebounds against OU for his sixth double-double of the season and the fourth in the last five games. The last Razorback to have more than six in a season was Derek Hood with a school-record 18 in 1999.

Six players scored in double figures against Oklahoma. Michael Washington had 24, Stefan Welsh 19, Rotnei Clarke 15, and Courtney Fortson, Marcus Monk and Michael Sanchez 12 each. This is the first time six Hogs have reached double-digits in the same game since March 11, 2004, in a 91-81 loss to South Carolina. In that game, Michael Jones had 15, Jonathon Modica 14, Olu Famutimi and Eric Ferguson 13, and Vincent Hunter and Kendrick Davis 10.

The Razorbacks have not trailed in the second half of their last six games. The last second-half deficit for the Hogs was 43-42 with 14:29 remaining against Florida A&M. Arkansas went on to win that game 86-61.

Arkansas led Oklahoma 53-38 at the half. The Razorbacks have scored 50 or more points in the first half of four of their last five games.

Arkansas’ 30 made free throws in 43 attempts against Oklahoma tie for the sixth-most in school history and are the most since Jan. 17, 2004, when the Razorbacks made a school-record 48 in 53 attempts against Ole Miss.
