Disappointing football season, stunning upset for Razorbacks basketball.
The No. 14 Razorback basketball team was shocked by mid-major UNC Greensboro on Friday, losing 78-72 in Bud Walton Arena. Arkansas struggled against the Spartans last season and encountered similar difficulties this time, trailing most of the game after an early 4-2 lead.
Despite it being early in the season, the loss is hard to swallow for most fans. Some took to X, or Twitter, to share their thoughts after the game.
From sarcastic remarks to hopeful messages, fans expressed a range of emotions following the Razorbacks’ surprising defeat:
– Aleigha tweeted “they were 4 for 23 on three point shots. razorback basketball is back. 🙃”
– Mark Anderson’s tweet read: “Yeah it’s just November I get it I just hate watching ugly basketball and it’s ugly every year. Sometimes unwatchable. Tonight was just flat embarrassing.”
– Another tweet from Mark Anderson stated: “I blame part of the losses on basketball and soccer on the football stadium being lit up purple.”
– Meanwhile, a fan named swampdonkey2021 tweeted: “I still love muss and razorbacks basketball. March is a long way off. WPS!!!!”
Many fans are clearly unimpressed with the team’s performance, but some are taking a more optimistic approach, like Twitter user zcremer52 who tweeted “We pull this crap every season and every season we’re still playing while they’re home watching.”
The mix of reactions shows how connected and passionate the Razorback fanbase is when it comes to the team’s victories and losses.
