FSN Southwest to Air Season Preview Show on No. 19 Basketball Hogs

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — FSN Southwest will telecast a 30-minute special previewing the 2007-08 Arkansas basketball season on Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 2:30 p.m. (central).

Dana Larson hosts the season outlook program from the Arkansas campus. It includes a one-on-one interview with head coach John Pelphrey, who breaks down his squad’s strengths and weaknesses, in-depth analysis by Scout.com’s Dudley Dawson, and a rundown of the team’s schedule.

Fans can watch the Arkansas season preview on FSN Southwest in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and parts of New Mexico.

Viewers living outside of the region can get the show on satellite TV services DirecTV (Ch. 643) and Dish Network (Ch. 416). It also airs nationally on Fox College Sports, available to 52 million digital cable TV homes nationwide (check local listings).

The Razorbacks, ranked No. 19 in the nation, return all five starters and nine lettermen from last year’s 21-14 squad which won the Old Spice Classic, advanced to the finals of the Southeastern Conference Tournament and earned a second straight NCAA Tournament bid.

The top returnees are sophomore guard Patrick Beverley, who has been named to the pre-season watch lists for the Wooden Award and the Naismith Trophy and is also a pre-season first-team All-Southeastern Conference selection, and senior center Steven Hill, and senior forwards Charles Thomas and Sonny Weems, all pre-season All-SEC second-team selections.

Arkansas has been picked to win the SEC Western Division title.
