Enter the Trojans

With a solid win over Oklahoma on Wednesday night, the University of Arkansas men's basketball team turns its attention to the Troy Trojans for a Saturday afternoon contest at Bud Walton Arena on Dec. 4, at 2 p.m.  The game is the first afternoon game of the regular season for the Razorbacks.

Arkansas (4-1) played well against Oklahoma on Wednesday night, forcing turnovers, blocking shots and making its free throws.  The Hogs shot better than 50 percent from the field in the game and forced 20-plus turnovers from their opponents for the fourth time this season.  Along with the turnovers, the Razorbacks were very good about surrendering their bodies as they took six charge calls against the Sooners, more than doubling their output from the first four games.  This is the third time in Arkansas head coach John Pelphrey's Razorback career that he has guided his team to a 4-1 start with the last time coming in 2008-09.

Individually for the Razorbacks Rotnei Clarke has been a shooting star, literally.  The Verdigris, Okla., native quietly scored 20 points against the Sooners, his second 20-plus point effort of the season, while hitting three three-point baskets to become the quickest Arkansas player to that milestone in school history.  Clarke was joined in double digits by junior transfer Jeff Peterson who tallied 15 including an 8-of-9 performance from the charity stripe.

Troy (1-5) is reeling from a streak of five straight losses after a season opening win against Huntingdon.  On the road for four of the five losses, the Trojans were dumped by 21 in their last game at home against UAB, 78-57, but did take Mississippi State to overtime in Starkville and lost by 19 to Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

The Arkansas-Oklahoma game will not be carried by broadcast television, but can be seen on RazorVision on ArkansasRazorbacks.com.  It will also be broadcast on the radio across the state of Arkansas on the Razorback Sports Network from IMG College with Chuck Barrett and Rick Schaeffer giving the call.  Barrett is in his first season as the play-by-play voice of the Razorbacks, replacing the legendary Mike Nail who held the position for 29 years.

Following the contest with Troy, Arkansas leaves the state for the first time as it participates in the SEC-Big East Invitational in Louisville, Ky., to take on Seton Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 8, at 6 p.m.
