FINAL| Red 103 White 67

JD Notae switches teams at halftime and knocks down 7/11 3 pointers in the second half and the Red team takes this game easily.

More to come on Check back later for a game story.

4:00 4th Quarter| Red 91 White 57

JD Notae starts the quarter off strong. He goes 4/5 from beyond the arc to extend the Red team lead. He now has 21 points, tied for the team lead with Moses Moody and Justin Smith.

10:00 4th Quarter| Red 72 White 53

Jaylin Williams switched to the White team.

Vance Jackso switched to the Red team.

I believe those are the only two changes from the first half.

Desi Sills has gotten one on one with Connor Vanover on the baseline twice. One resulted in a layup, the other in a foul. Two good moves from Sills.

An 11-2 run just before the halfway point of the 3rd quarter opened things up for the Red team.

Brief observations, Indiana transfer Justin Smith will be a key piece in the Razorbacks offense. Desi Sills is still as shifty and tough as ever and as I said earlier Moses Moody will be a problem this year.

Moody has 18 points, while Smith has 19. Eight more minutes to play in the scrimmage.

HALF| Red 41 White 31

Both teams have combined to shoot 30 three pointers, making nine of them.

Something that is different this year as well is the Hogs are playing a full court zone defense at times. Something that didn't happen last year because of a lack of depth.

Eric Musselman already told us before the game that the teams would change at halftime so we'll have to see who he wants on each team when they come back out for the second half.

10:00 2nd quarter| Red 38 White 29

Red starting to pour it on the White team at the first of the half, but the White team went on a 9-0 run to pull things closer.

Justin Smith comes up with a nice spin move at the top of the key and sinks a layup. Notae answers with a nice step-back three. Good ball movement from the Red team as a high-low pass from Jaylin Williams gets Smith a layup.

Moses Moody is going to be a problem for people this year. He went up and over a defender on the White team to get a rebound.

Two alley oops have happened this quarter as well one for each team. Henderson flushed one home for the White team and Vanover dunked one for the Red team.

10:00 2nd quarter| Red 17 White 14

Desi Sills had five points since the quarter break, putting in a layup and a three. Khalen Robinson with an impressive showing for the White team. He adds four more points to give him seven points.

3:34 1st quarter| Red 10 White 6

It's been all Moses Moody for the the Red team early. He has three baskets and six points. Jalen Tate and Desi Sills have added to the Red team's score with layups. All of the White team's points have come from behind the arc. JD Notae and Khallen Robinson have hit threes. Robinson's was contested really well, but he still knocked it down. Notae has shot five times for the White team only making one of those baskets.

Dunk Contest

The contest consists of two rounds. Each contestant will participate in both rounds. Moses Moody, Ethan Henderson, Davonte Davis and Justin Smith are the competitors.

Davonte Davis wins the dunk contest. It was a close call between him and Justin Smith, but I think Davis' two dunks were better than Smith's.

Students are filing in for the first basketball event inside Bud Walton arena since March 4. Things will look a little different this year, but it's nice to have basketball back.

If you want to watch the game it is available on SEC Network-Plus. Players were wearing throwback jerseys in warmups, a nice tribute to some former Razorbacks.
