FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Mardracus Wade has provided Arkansas some much-needed outside shooting this season.
The Razorbacks guard leads the Southeastern Conference in 3-point shooting, hitting 50 percent (51 of 102) of his shots from behind the arc. The performance is a vast improvement over Wade's freshman season, when he averaged only four points per game and hit barely 20 percent of his 3-pointers.
The sophomore is averaging 11.1 points per game this season, second on the team, and he hit all five of his 3-point attempts in a loss at Georgia on Wednesday.
Arkansas (16-8, 4-5 SEC) has yet to lose in Bud Walton Arena this season, a streak it will look to continue when it hosts South Carolina (9-14, 1-8) on Saturday.
