Hogs Beat South Carolina to Get on Winning Streak

Fans leave disappointed because of much different streak

BREAKING: THE STREAK OF GAMES WITH CONSECUTIVE 3-POINTERS HAS ENDED AT 1,092 GAMES. THE LAST TIME IT HAPPENED WAS AGAINST TEXAS IN 1989.

The Hogs officially have a winning streak for the first time in a while following a 75-59 win over South Carolina, but that is not the streak Razorback fans were talking about following the game.

Around the three minute mark, Arkansas fans began screaming for the Hogs to take a three as word about the streak began to make its way around the arena. 

As time ticked away, the fans became more frantic, but the players didn't heed their cries as they never attempted a three, sending Hog fans away in disappointment. 

J.D. Notae's three at the 4:47 mark was the Razorback's final attempt at keeping the streak alive.

Arkansas looked to get off to a hot start and pull away early from a South Carolina team that has struggled shooting from the field.

Despite the "sell-out" crowd, the stands are incredibly empty as game begins even with students back.

Speaking of who's back, head coach Eric Musselman is prowling the sidelines in what appears to be a designer sling.

The magic number was 40%. South Carolina rarely shoots above 40% from the field, but the Gamecocks usually win when they do. Frank Martin's team built a halftime lead by shooting 43.8% at the half.

However, the Hogs turned up the defensive pressure in the second half as they opened with an 18-3 run as the Gamecock's shooting fell to 33.9% for the game.
