‘I thought in the second half we were much more like what we have to be’ Everything Buzz Williams had to say after the loss to Arkansas

Texas A&M (10-7, 1-3 SEC) dropped their 3rd SEC game in a last-second 78-77 loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks (10-7, 1-3 SEC) at Bud Walton Arena on Tuesday.

Unfortunately, the Aggies found themselves in an all-too-familiar situation in Fayetteville suffering from the same issues that had plagued them to start the season. It started with senior forward Henry Coleman III not suiting out, limiting the size they could have used on the court, making this another game they could not play at full strength.

Possibly the most irritating of all had to be the missed shots on the offensive end, coupled with the poor perimeter defense. Once again, Wade Taylor IV had to turn into a one-man band even to give the Aggies a shot to snatch a victory away from the Razorbacks. His career-high 41 points ended in frustration when Arkansas hit the game-winning shot.

The team showed a lot of heart, but it’s hard to recover when you can’t knock down open shots and go down 20 early. Coach Buzz Williams alluded to this point when speaking after the game.

“We did a lot of really good things. I really appreciate the togetherness and the fight that we showed we just dug a really big hole at the start.”

Texas A&M will return on the road when they travel to Baton Rouge to take on LSU on January 20 at 3:00 pm CT.
