    Arkansas vs. Kentucky

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – For awhile Saturday the Arkansas Razorbacks thrilled their Walton Arena 19,200  capacity crowd overcoming a 36-27 halftime deficit to lead  Kentucky 47-44  with 8:19 left and Kentucky coach John Calipari ejected slapped with double technical fouls. But in that last 8:19 under Kentucky assistant coach Kenny Payne it all turned Quickley. Immanuel Quickley, the Kentucky guard playing all 40 minutes logging a 13 points/10 rebounds double-double,   hit a three putting …

FAYETTEVILLE – With  both  scoring stars Mason Jones and Isaiah Joe first-half scoreless and Arkansas 1 for 11 on first half threes, the favored Razorbacks gave the Vanderbilt Commodores the chance to hang around. However, Jimmy Whitt’s inside job hung a 75-55  SEC defeat on the Commodores Wednesday…

    Arkansas vs. Missouri – Women’s Basketball

    By Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Scoring 38 points, Chelsea Dungee overcame and then some Arkansas’ beleaguered beginning and propelled the Razorbacks women to a 90-73 SEC victory over the Missouri Tigers Sunday afternoon before 4,172 at Walton Arena. The Razorbacks had lost seven consecutive games to Missouri in their annual 2-game home and home SEC series. Arkansas  started down that road again Sunday missing its first 10 shots. Dungee righted that ship scoring 17 first half…

    Arkansas vs. Texas A&M

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas  drew a sellout crowd at its 19,200 seat Walton Arena and needed it  Saturday full throated to subdue the stubborn Texas A&M Aggies, 69-59  in the SEC opener for both teams. First-year coach Eric Musselman’ Razorbacks are a gaudy 12-2  overall going into their Wednesday night SEC game at LSU while first-year coach Buzz Williams’ Aggies only 6-6 overall going into their second SEC game Tuesday night hosting Ole Miss.…

    Derrick LeBlanc Leaving Kentucky Wildcats to Join Razorback Nation

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE- Kentucky defensive line coach Derrick LeBlanc is leaving the Wildcats to join new new Arkansas coach Sam Pittman’s Razorbacks  staff, the Lexington (Ky.) Herald Leader has reported. LeBlanc presumably will coach the Arkansas defensive line or at least some positions on the defensive line since Pittman did not retain defensive ends coach Steve Caldwell and defensive tackles coach Kenny Ingram from the previous Razorbacks staff of Chad Morris. LeBlanc coached the defensive…

    Arkansas women vs. Texas A&M

    Nate Allen FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas’ fast and furious second half once caught (61-61) but never could surpass Texas A&M’s 44-32 halftime lead. So ultimately the nationally No. 11 Aggies of Hall of Fame coach and former Arkansas coach Gary Blair defeated the 20th-ranked Razorbacks of former Blair Arkansas staffer Mike Neighbors, 84-77 in the SEC women’s basketball opener for both teams Thursday night on SEC Network television at Walton Arena. Arkansas scrapped to the bitter…

    Arkansas Victorious Over Big Ten

    FAYETTEVILLE – With Sunday’s 71-64 big victory over the Big Ten’s big Indiana University Hoosiers at IU’s  Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Ind. capping an 11-1 November-December nonconference campaign, Arkansas coach Eric Musselman campaigns for a new narrative. His Razorbacks runts with 6-6 senior  forward Adrio Bailey their tallest starter and relying on just seven players against an IU  team starting  a 6-11, 6-9, 6-7 frontline with a 5-deep bench, wearied  the now 11-2 Hoosiers cutting …

    FAYETTEVILLE – On the same Saturday night Arkansas Razorbacks fans from their homes could hear their new coach triumph and see their old coach triumph. No ill reflection at all on Mike Anderson.  But it was far more enjoyable Saturday  in Fayetteville listening on radio as coach Eric Musselman’s Razorbacks overcame the Valparaiso Crusaders, 72-68 at Simmons Bank Arena in North Little Rock  than later watching Anderson’s St. John’s  Red Storm defeat the Arizona Wildcats, 70-67…

    Razorbacks rally to dramatic win in North Little Rock

    By Jeremy Peppas Special to Nate Allen Sports Services NORTH LITTLE ROCK — It was a sloppy night for basketball for the Arkansas Razorbacks. In the team’s one and only trip to central Arkansas, the Razorbacks struggled in the first half against Valparaiso but pulled away for a 72-68 victory and improved to 10-1 on the season. Valpo made a game out of it, but the Crusaders (7-6) couldn’t pull off the upset of the…
