The Razorbacks and Rams met exactly one year ago (Dec. 5, 2017) in Bud Walton Arena, which is the only previous meeting between the two squads.
Arkansas got off to a slow start in that inaugural meeting, spotting the Rams 10 points, before the Razorbacks could figure out anything on the offensive end and cruise to a 92-66 win.
Daniel Gafford made an immediate impact coming off the bench in the win. The big man recorded a block on the defensive end, then scored seven of Arkansas’ next 10 points to assist in a 19-0 Razorback run.
