Team Arkansas’ run at the TBT is over.

A team comprised largely of former Razorbacks basketball players took part in The Basketball Tournament this past week in hopes of playing for a $1,000,000 prize. But after winning their first two games in the Omaha Regional, Team Arkansas was beaten in the finale by Gutter Cats on Tuesday, 62-52.

Former Hogs guard Jaylen Barford led all scorers with 24 points while Dusty Hannahs joined in him double figures with 13. Team Arkansas was within three points in the fourth quarter before a Gutter Cats run at the end allowed them to reach the target score.

The Gutter Cats were led by Tyrese Rice, a former guard at Boston College, with 22 points. They advance to the final eight-team tournament in Dayton from July 28 – August 1.

Other former Razorbacks on Team Arkansas included Courtney Fortson, Trey Wade, Sonny Weems, Hunter Mickelson and Jimmy Whitt.
