It was a white-knuckle affair down the stretch, but Arkansas ultimately pulled away for its 11th straight SEC win on Saturday at Bud Walton Arena with an 87-80 victory over Texas A&M.

The Razorbacks matched the school record set in 1994. Along the way, the Razorbacks also extended another streak. Thanks to Moses Moody’s 3-pointer, Arkansas extended the streak to 1,069 consecutive games with a 3. Arkansas improved to 21-5 overall, and 13-4 in the SEC, while A&M fell to 8-9 and 2-8 in the SEC).

The game came after a long layoff for Texas A&M following several weeks of COVID-19-caused interruptions. The Razorbacks enter the SEC Tournament on Friday in Nashville, Tenn., with even more momentum as they will play in a quarterfinal game as the No. 2 seed.

The Aggies put up quite a fight despite not playing a game during the month of February. They only returned to action on Wednesday in a loss against Mississippi State. The game was tied with six minutes, and the Aggies had a lead inside of four minutes.

The Arkansas momentum has been building for several weeks, and after a 28-point road win at South Carolina, Arkansas climbed seven spots to 12th, the program’s highest ever NCAA NET Rankings. Look for another boost if the Razorbacks keep this up.
