Moses Moody

Freshman guard Moses Moody drives the lane during Saturday’s win over LSU. Moody earned SEC Freshman of the Week honors following his 24- and 18-point performances against No. 6 Alabama and LSU, respectively. 

Arkansas shooting guard Moses Moody was named Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week on Monday. It is the second time this season that he has nabbed the weekly honor, with the first coming in early December after scoring 24 points and grabbing nine rebounds in a win over the Texas-Arlington Mavericks.

Moody was recognized for his performances in the Hogs’ wins over the No. 8 Alabama Crimson Tide and the LSU Tigers. Moody scored 24 points, grabbed five rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal against Alabama and had 18 points against LSU, along with eight rebounds and five assists. Moody went a combined 27-of-33 from the free throw line during the week.

“I think the key to basketball, a big key, is getting free throws attempted and attacking with force,” Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman said in a Zoom press teleconference after the 83-75 win over LSU. “And Moses is doing that. His shots weren’t falling, but he did a great job of taking people off the bounce and flashing against their switching of man-to-man.”

The No. 12 Razorbacks are 19-5 on the season with an SEC record of 11-4 and have won nine straight conference games, lifting them to second place in the SEC standings. The Hogs will travel to Columbia, South Carolina, to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks on Tuesday, Mar. 2 at 5:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on the SEC Network.
