THE HOG DAYS OF SUMMER
If the Summer League is any indication, there's about to be a wave of Pro Hogs making noise in the NBA this coming season. Every night there's a new Razorback men's basketball alum earning minutes or racking up points it seems.
And last night was no exception.
▶️ Moses Moody: This year's 14th overall pick racked up 14 points in the Warriors' win over the Raptors, including this shot from beyond the arc. Moody's 14 points was second only to Jonathan Kuminga—the other first round pick by Golden State.
▶️ Justin Smith: The Hogs' second-leading scorer last season might have gone undrafted, but he's getting minutes off the bench in both wins by the Heat so far, including last night's overtime victory against the Grizzlies.
▶️ Mason Jones: He may have started on the bench in the Wizards' first game earlier this week, but he made the most of it—scoring 14 points and collecting 2 rebounds. He also plays this afternoon at 4:00pm CT on ESPNU against the Nets.
▶️ Isaiah Joe: A second round pick last year, Joe factored heavily into the 76ers first win against the Mavericks, scoring 15 points and collecting 4 rebounds. He plays tonight at 8:00pm CT on ESPN2 against the Hawks.
The SEC has set home and away opponents for the men's basketball team during the 2021-2022 season. You can see them here.
