Arkansas releases 2013-14 men's basketball non-conference schedule

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The complete University of Arkansas men’s basketball non-conference schedule was unveiled on Monday via the team’s twitter account @RazorbackMBB. The 13-game non-conference slate features nine games at Bud Walton Arena and one at Verizon Arena in North Little Rock.

The nine non-conference games and previously announced nine SEC home games give the Razorbacks 18 regular season games at Bud Walton Arena where they are 271-66 all-time.

“This non-conference schedule will provide our team with a lot of challenges early on,” said head coach Mike Anderson. “We know the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational is a premiere event with great teams and we look forward to playing in it. The schedule also gives our loyal fan base an opportunity to watch this team grow and develop. We’ll be well prepared for SEC action.”

The Razorbacks will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Bud Walton Arena by officially opening their third season under coach Anderson against SIU-Edwardsville on Friday, Nov. 8. It marks the first meeting between the two teams while Arkansas is 20-0 all-time in home openers at Bud Walton Arena.

After a week off from game action, Arkansas returns to Bud Walton for a pair of games over four days when it hosts Louisiana-Lafayette on Friday, Nov. 15, and SMU on Monday, Nov. 18. The meeting with Louisiana-Lafeyette is part of the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational as the Ragin Cajuns will be one of the teams participating in the Regional Tournament in Conway, S.C. Led by head coach Larry Brown, SMU is entering its first year in the newly-formed American Athletic Conference and the meeting will be the 153rd between the two programs.

Arkansas and Pac-12 member California will open play at the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational on Monday, Nov. 25, at 2 p.m. on ESPN2. Each team in the Maui Invitational will play three games with the Razorbacks’ second opponent being either Syracuse or Minnesota. The tournament runs from Nov. 25-27.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
