While anticipation surrounds the football program, there’s nothing but optimism surrounding Razorback basketball.
The Hogs are 8-0 and hit the road Saturday for the second time this season to face Western Kentucky (6-3). The Hilltoppers knocked off the Hogs in Fayetteville last year, 78-77, behind a strong performance from 6’11 forward Charles Bassey. Bassey and company now await the undersized Razorbacks’ return trip.
Arkansas’ offense needs to get back in rhythm after a couple of rough outings. The Hogs scored just 66 and 69 in wins over Northern Kentucky and Austin Peay, two poor defensive teams. Against NKU, the Hogs couldn’t get shots to fall, especially without Mason Jones.
