FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Fans can get their first game action look at the #Fastest40 in just two days when the Arkansas men’s basketball team hosts its annual Red-White Scrimmage on Wednesday, Oct. 29, at Bud Walton Arena.
Open and free to the public, the scrimmage will begin at 7 p.m. with doors to Bud Walton Arena opening at 5:30 p.m. Head coach Mike Anderson and the Razorbacks are asking fans to bring a non-perishable food item to donate with collection points at each entrance at BWA. All the items donated will benefit the Full Circle Food Pantry on campus.
Rosters for the Red-White scrimmage will be released on Tuesday.
Once doors open at 5:30 p.m., fans can make their way to the southeast and southwest concourse to meet the Razorbacks who will be signing autographs from 5:45-6:20 p.m. Fans are encouraged to park in lots 46, 56, 56B, 56D and 60. Located in Bud Walton Arena, Hog Heaven will stay open for the duration of the scrimmage.
While watching the #Fastest40 on the court, fans interested in purchasing season tickets will be able to select a seat available in the lower level. Ticket sales representatives will be available to answer questions and process orders. A limited number of seats remain in the 100 level while season tickets start as low as $360 for the upcoming 20-game slate at Bud Walton Arena. Season tickets are available now at the Razorback Ticket Center, by phone at 1-800-982-HOGS (4647) and online at ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
Arkansas returns eight players, including six of its top seven scorers, from its 2013-14 squad that went 22-10 overall and advanced to the NIT second round, good for the program’s first 20-win season and postseason berth since 2008.
Fans that made their way to BWA last year were certainly entertained, as Arkansas averaged 86.7 points per game at home, highlighted by a quartet of 100-point outings, and turned in six plays that were featured on SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays (#SCtop10) later that night and the following morning.
