Highlights and box score from Arkansas exhibition win over Catalan top flight



Arkansas was tested in their second exhibition game of their overseas tour on Thursday but pulled out after a slow start to defeat Catalan Elite, 99-86, from Pavello Poliesportiu Municipal de Tiana in Barcelona, ​​Spain.

The Razorbacks overcame 23 turnovers by forcing 20 of their own and using a balanced scoring offense that saw seven players score in double figures, paced by Nick Smith and Davonte Davis with 17 apiece. Kamani Johnson continued his solid game in Europe with a double-double of 10 points and 12 rebounds. Meanwhile, Trevon Brazile threw 14 points, Rick Council added 13, Jordan Walsh had 12 and Barry Dunning threw 10 points in the win.

“It was a tough game from the start. As you could see, it was a lot more physical than the first game,” Johnson said. “We have a lot of youngsters and transfers, so I think it was a good challenge for us. I’d rather have that challenge right now than Maui and all that. I think we responded well. We have to do a lot of the things better defensively. We need to reduce turnovers. But it’s a new team. We’re all still building chemistry. It’s our second game against other people.

However, the men’s basketball Twitter account provided a fair amount of highlights, and we’ve compiled them for those who want a quick look at some of the day’s events:
