Arkansas Just Can’t Win in Gainesville

It has been a very long time since Arkansas traveled to Gainesville and actually won a basketball game. The Razorbacks have lost their past 11 games when visiting the Florida Gators, which includes an 87-84 defeat in their last contest at O’Connell Center during the 2016 season.

Shark Bites
  • Florida is 8-0 SU in its last 8 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • Arkansas is 5-0 SU and ATS in its last 5 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • Arkansas is 3-0 ATS in its last 3 games on the road against Florida.

Arkansas seems to have a place in the NCAAB Tournament, but a win over Florida would all but confirm that bid. The Razorbacks have won five straight games, including a victory over then-ranked South Carolina, while posting an average scoring margin of plus-10.6 points per game. Moses Kingsley has quietly been a dominant force for Arkansas, as the senior is averaging 11.8 points and 7.7 rebounds per game while notching 78 blocks on the season.

Florida saw its nine-game winning streak come to an end at the hands of Kentucky in their last outing, as the Gators were dominated on the glass. Rebounding has been a struggle for Florida all season, with no player averaging more than 6.6 rebounds per game. KeVaughn Allen torched Arkansas earlier this season, as the Little Rock native scored 21 points and drained five treys in an 81-72 Florida win.
