This Tuesday, there is an NCAAB matchup between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Florida Gators. This game will take place at the Exactech Arena at approximately 7:00 P.M EST.
Arkansas Looks To Snap Losing Streak
The Arkansas Razorbacks have looked like a pretty good college basketball team up to this point in the season. The Razorbacks have won 16 of their first 25 games of the season despite losing to Mississippi State by one point at home in their last game. In that game, Arkansas' defense struggled as it allowed 78 points while allowing the opposition to shoot 58.8% from the floor. Now, the Razorbacks will be looking to get back to their winning ways with a conference road game up next. However, Arkansas has lost each of its last four games so it will be looking to snap that losing streak on Tuesday.
Leading the Razorbacks offensively is junior guardMason Jones who has looked very good so far this season as he is averaging a team-high 20.8 points per game along with 6.0 rebounds. However, he is also averaging a team-high 3.3 turnovers per game so he will need to make less mistakes moving forward.

Arkansas' most underrated player is sophomore guard Isaiah Joe who has been very underwhelming so far this season as he is averaging 16.0 points per game along with 4.3 rebounds. However, he is also shooting just 36.0% from the floor and just 34.0% from the three-point line so he been very inefficient offensively up to this point.
Florida Looks To Keep Playing Well

The Gators have won 16 of their first 25 games and they enter this game on a high note after beating Vanderbilt at home by 18 points in their last game. In that game, Florida's offense was amazing as it scored 84 points while shooting 50.0% from the three-point line. Now, the Gators will be looking for another home victory in this conference game on Tuesday. Luckily, Florida has won four of its last five games so it has been playing extremely well lately which bodes well for the Gators in this game.
Leading the Gators offensively is senior forwardKerry Blackshear Jr. who has looked pretty good so far this season. He is averaging a team-high 13.6 points per game along with a team-high 7.7 rebounds. However, he is also shooting just 31.3% from the three-point line so he has struggled with his shot from behind the arc up to this point.
Florida's most underrated player is sophomore guardAndrew Nembhard who has been pretty good this season as he is averaging 11.7 points per game along with a team-high 5.5 assists. In addition, he is averaging 1.1 steals per game so he has been very active on both sides of the ball up to this point.
