Looking back at Saturday's record-setting game
NWA MEDIA/SAMANTHA BAKER -- Kevin Stallings, head coach of Vanderbilt, yells out to his players Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013, during the first half of a game at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville.
FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas beat Vanderbilt 56-33 on Saturday in a game that saw several records broken.
Many of those are records the Commodores would likely love to forget in one of their worst offensive games ever. Below is a look at some of the marks set.
- Vanderbilt's 33 points were the fewest ever for a team at Bud Walton Arena. Southern Miss previously held the record of 35 points set in 2005.
- The 33 points were the fewest Arkansas has allowed in a Southeastern Conference game, easily beating the former mark of 47 points scored by Georgia in 2005.
- The 89 combined points were the fewest in a SEC game in which Arkansas has played. The previous low was 100 combined points in a 55-45 Ole Miss win in 2004.
- Vanderbilt's 11 first half points tied for the fewest by a team at Bud Walton Arena. Florida A&M also scored 11 in a loss to Arkansas in 2011.
- Arkansas' 23-point win was the second-largest ever against Vanderbilt. The Razorbacks defeated the Commodores 107-70 in 1991.
- Vanderbilt beat its school record for fewest points in a game by two, tying its lowest point output for games in the shot clock era, which also came this season in a 50-33 loss to Marist. The Commodores scored 31 in a loss to Mississippi State in 1982.
