The 15-0 mark is the best for the school since it had the same mark for the entire 1997-98 season, during which first-year coach Mike Anderson was an assistant for the Razorbacks under former coach Nolan Richardson. The only other Arkansas squad to finish a season undefeated in the arena was the 1993-94 national championship team.

Arkansas' Julysses Nobles forced Michigan's Trey Burke to shoot a difficult three-point shot that rimmed out as the clock hit 0:00 and the Razorbacks (13-5, 2-2) survived with a two-point victory at Bud Walton Arena.

Michigan (15-4, 5-2) worked its way back into the game and cut the lead to two points three times in the last four minutes, but never led.

Harris: Clarke's Transfer May Be Most Disappointing Ever for Razorback Basketball

by Jim Harris 6/22/2011 3:04 pm

We should have known all wouldn't ever be rosy with Rotnei Clarke's career at Arkansas when, after the kid pledged to be a Razorback in the fall of 2007, his dad quit his job at Oral Roberts University and moved the family to Northwest Arkansas. In an era in which we see Little League parents following their progeny all the way into the NBA, this spelled trouble.

What happened to turning your son or daughter over the college coaches and teachers and letting things be?

Bahn: Importance of Memphis To Fueling Razorback Success Not Lost On Anderson

by Chris Bahn 3/29/2011 10:00 pm

Historically, the city of Memphis has played a big part in Arkansas basketball success. Each of the program’s four teams to reach the Final Four since 1978 has included a contributor who hailed from just across the Mississippi River. That fact is not lost on new Razorbacks coach Mike Anderson.
