FAYETTEVILLE – Mike’d Up, the weekly radio show dedicated to University of Arkansas basketball, continues tonight at 7 p.m. at Sassy’s Red House in Fayetteville.
The one-hour program, which begins its second season at Sassy’s, gives fans an opportunity to interact with Razorback coaches and players while also getting an opportunity to learn more about the personalities that they witness on the court. Hosted by Chuck Barrett, the program features interviews with head coach Mike Anderson
and Arkansas student-athletes and coaches. Fans in attendance will also have an opportunity to ask the head Razorback their own questions.
With the Razorbacks holding an 13-8 record and coming off a double figure victory over Auburn, tonight’s show will feature head coach Mike Anderson
and director of student-athlete development Scotty Thurman
. Coach Thurman's focus is assisting the growth of student-athletes on and off the court as well as bridging the gap between the current program and former student-athletes. Thurman is also part of Razorback lore, famously sinking a three-point basket as time expired to put Arkansas over Duke to win the 1994 National Championship. The only player in Arkansas history to be named to the All-SEC first team three times, Thurman still ranks 10th on Arkansas’ all-time scoring list with 1,650 points. He continues to hold Arkansas’ single-season record for three-pointers in a season with 102 and ranks second on the career three-point chart with 267.
Fans can also send in a question to coach Anderson via Twitter by mentioning @RazorbackMBB and using the hashtag #MikedUp.
Mike’d Up can be heard across the Razorback Sports Network from IMG College across the state. The 12-show schedule will continue Feb. 10, 17, 24 and March 3.
