The Razorbacks will open the season vs. Oral Roberts, and also host Northern Illinois, Lipscomb and Abilene Christian in the upcoming season.
And the women will host Gonzaga in December.
I wonder what’s in the water at Gonzaga. Both their basketball programs are so good.
Harding must have already filled their schedule
Here is a look at what we’ve got so far:
Known 2020-21 Arkansas basketball schedule
• Nov. 10 — Oral Roberts (H)
• Nov. 20 — MGM Resorts Main Event - Game 1 (Las Vegas)
• Nov. 22 — MGM Resorts Main Event - Game 2 (Las Vegas)
• Nov. 28 — Northern Illinois (H)
• Dec. 5 — Lipscomb (H)
• Dec. 12 — Oklahoma (in Tulsa)
• Dec. 19 — Old Dominion (in North Little Rock)
• Dec. 23 — Abilene Christian (H)
• TBA — Tulsa (A)
• TBA — UT-Arlington (H)
• Jan. 23 — Big 12/SEC Challenge
Someone, maybe Jon Rothstein, has said San Francisco will be Arkansas’ first opponent in Las Vegas. We haven’t been able to confirm that, but San Francisco has been added as one of the four teams in that field.
Since they’re going the church or Christ route, should’ve scheduled Pepperdine
Remember that Pepperdine had NC State absolutely dead in the first round of the 1983 NCAA tournament and let the Pack off the hook in double OT. About 17 days later Jim Valvano is running around the floor in Albuquerque looking for someone to hug.
So guess who who we will be facing in the season opener against ORU. Ex-Hog walk-on RJ Glasper.
Arkansas could see a few old players next year. Jordan Phillips is at UT-Arlington and Keyshawn Embery-Simpson is at Tulsa.
Is there a chance we could get West Virginia and Gabe in the SEC-Big 12 challenge?
Need to get a game in Stillwater to complete the Oklahoma competition…
It might happen. Arkansas should be a road team in the Big 12/SEC Challenge, and the Big 12 home teams should be Oklahoma State, TCU, Baylor, Iowa State and Kansas State.
HAHAHA!!! I was thinking the same thing. As a Christian that attends a CoC(and attends Harding right now), playing Lipscomb and Abilene would be great.
