FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas men’s basketball team will host Northeastern State (Okla.), Tuesday, Nov. 5, in its second and final exhibition game of the 2013-14 season. Tip at Bud Walton Arena is slated for 7 p.m.
Fans unable to attend the game can watch live on www.ArkansasRazorbacks.com through RazorVision for free. Chuck Barrett and Rick Schaeffer will have the call from Bud Walton Arena.
Arkansas opened its exhibition slate with a victory in a 99-82 victory over Missouri Southern last Friday. The frontcourt trio of senior Coty Clarke
, redshirt junior Alandise Harris
and freshman Bobby Portis
combined for 37 points and 22 rebounds to lead the Razorbacks. Portis recorded a double-double in the first half before finishing with a game-high 12 rebounds, while Clarke led the squad in scoring with 14 points.
Tuesday night will be the first time Northeastern State will take the court for the 2013-14 season, coming off a 19-9 2012-13 record and an NCAA Division II Tournament first round appearance. Returning five letterwinners from last year’s squad, including senior Bryton Hobbs who led the team in scoring (18.3 ppg), the Riverhawks are ranked No. 17 in MIAA/Division II preseason poll.
