📈 STOCK UP (7/12)
Good morning, everyone! And an extra good morning to the (literal) hundreds of you who let us know that the only correct way to drink coffee is black. No sugar. No cream. No nothing. I usually add a little sugar to my brew, but today... I'm going with pure, unadulterated black coffee for today's edition. I feel more powerful already.
No Sweetener Needed: Monday can be a drag, but not with Phil Elson and Chuck Barrett taking over today's episode of The Razorback Daily to share stories from the greatest Razorback moments this past season and to answer the question: "Why was Z in a mosh pit in Indy during the men's basketball team's Elite Eight run?"You can listen here.
What else is stirring in today's Brew?

🎙️ Greatest Razorback moments
🐗 And more!
🔺 Bobby Buckets. Razorback men's basketball legend Bobby Portis was pivotal in Game 3 of the NBA Finals—scoring 11 points, collecting 8 rebounds, and earning "Bobby! Bobby! Bobby!" chants from the crowd and even teammate Brook Lopez.
🔺 Dual Threat. Razorback softball has added their third transfer of the offseason with the addition of pitcher and designated player Chenise Delce from Tulsa. Delce earned a 2.12 ERA, struck out 279 batters, and opponents hit just .219 against her in 57 career games. But that's not all! She hit a career-best .296 with six extra-base hits and drove in 20 runs last season.
🔺 Ace In The Hole. Kelsey Plum is headed to Tokyo, but not before taking care of business back home in the WNBA. The Razorback women's basketball graduate assistant was good for 16 points during yesterday's win for the Las Vegas Aces, including this dagger from beyond the arc. (Head coach Mike Neighbors even got a shoutout on the broadcast!)
🔺 First Round Talent. Arkansas baseball signee Max Muncy was drafted by the Oakland A's with the 25th overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft. Round 2 begins this afternoon at 12:00pm CT.
