Defensively, Arkansas held ULM to just 22.1 percent shooting, including 10.5 percent from 3-point range, and also forced 17 turnovers, which led to 27 points off turnovers.

“I thought it was the best 40 minutes that we have played so far.” said coach Jimmy Dykes. “I know it’s only our second game, but I thought from the opening tip to the final buzzer that it was the most complete game that we have played. I really liked our energy defensively and I really liked like how active everyone was on the floor.”
