When I wrote last night’s post, I only had access to the preliminary box score on Yahoo, which didn’t include assists and rebounds. Therefore, I didn’t realize that Courtney Fortson had notched a triple-double - the first Razorback to do so since Alvin Robertson against Texas in 1984 (that’s hard to believe).
20 points. 10 rebounds (four of the offensive variety). And 11 assists.
As a team, the Hogs had 26 turnovers compared to 23 assists - not a great ratio, to say the least. But Fortson’s turnover/assist ratio was respectable, as he turned the ball over four times.
The kid is a special player. I’m glad he’s on our team.
