Razorback hoop notes

Junior Michael Washington continues to lead the SEC in rebounding with 9.6 boards per game. That average would be the best for a Razorback since Derek Hood led the league with 10.3 per game in 1999. Washington is also ninth in scoring (16.2), fourth in field goal percentage (.561) and eighth in blocked shots (1.3).

After making 2-of-15 three-pointers as a freshman last year (13.3 percent), Marcus Britt, who hit his only three-point attempt against LSU on Wednesday, is 9-of-20 this season, 45 percent.

Four Razorbacks have combined for 14 double-doubles this season. That is the most in a season for Arkansas since 1999 when Derek Hood had a school-record 18 and Kareem Reid added four point-assist double-doubles for 22 total.

Freshman Rotnei Clarke is fifth in the SEC with 2.5 three-point goals per game.

Freshman guard Courtney Fortson is second in the SEC in assists (6.3), 11th in scoring (14.7), 13th in field goal percentage (.433), 23rd in rebounding (5.3) and fifth in minutes played32.6).
