Eric Musselman speaks about offensive changes given the absences of Nick Smith Jr. and Trevon Brazile
Eric Musselman had plenty to be excited about following Tuesday’s win at Kentucky.
Arkansas used a red-hot second half to roll to an 88-73 win for Arkansas’ 5th-straight SEC win for the Razorbacks and it was Musselman’s 200th win as a collegiate head coach, his 90th at Arkansas.
“During this winning streak, we continue to play better and better and our offense is catching up with our defense,” he said on Sirius XM. “Our defense has been pretty good for the entirety of the season.”
The major change was Nick Smith Jr. and Trevon Brazile being out because Arkansas spent the whole summer building its offense around them.
“Without both of them, it was a completely rebuild offensively,” Musselman said. “And we’re still adding. We had 4 new sets that we had not run at all prior to last night’s game. We’re still trying to figure out strengths of our ballclub, where guys want the ball, where second and third options can be if the play breaks down. So we hope to improve as the season moves along.”
“It was a complete rebuild offensively.”
