The Cats will play host to the Arkansas Razorbacks Tuesday night at 9:00pm at Rupp Arena. The Razorbacks are led by first year coach Mike Anderson. Anderson replaces John Pelphrey who was fired after 3 disappointing seasons in Fayetteville. Anderson was a long time assistant under Nolan Richardson and comes to Arkansas by way of the Missouri Tigers.
Arkansas (13-4, 2-1 SEC) will go 8-9 deep and starts no player over 6'8. The Hogs are led in scoring by FR. BJ Young at 15.0 ppg. The Hogs took a big blow when they lost JR. Marshawn Powell to a torn ACL. Arkansas loves to play at a fast pace which could play right into the hands of the Cats.
The Cats and Hogs are scheduled to tip at 9:00pm Tuesday Night in Rupp Arena. ESPN will carry the game.
