FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas head men’s basketball coach Mike Anderson began his spring tour of Razorback clubs on Monday night when he visited the Delta Razorback Club in Dumas, Ark.
Anderson began the event by inviting the more than 300 people in attendance to join him in a Hog Call before speaking for nearly 20 minutes about the Razorback program, “The Fastest 40 Minutes in Basketball” and his expectations moving forward. Anderson’s speech touched on the 2012-13 Razorback season, a breakdown of each of the Razorbacks, where he wants to be in March of 2014 and his recruits that have signed national letters of intent.
Arkansas went 19-13 in Anderson’s second year as the head coach, including a school record 17 wins at Bud Walton Arena. Arkansas’ lone loss at home came to eventual Final Four team Syracuse and included wins over No. 2/2 Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma and Kentucky among others. The Razorbacks return 13 players from last season’s squad with several key pieces to Arkansas’ 2012-13 success.
Anderson will travel to several Razorback Club meetings this spring with the next scheduled stop at the White River Razorback Club in Batesville, Ark., on Wednesday, May 1.
