Of course, Black played last season at Arkansas and was named to the SEC All-Freshman team after averaging 12.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.1 steals. He was the only player to rank inside the top 25 in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and blocks (22).
Unfortunately, Black wasn’t treated to a win by the home team.
BYU knocked off Arkansas, 38-31, to improve to 3-0 on the season. The Cougars overcame a 10-point deficit late in the third quarter to come back and drop the Razorbacks to 2-1 this season.
