FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas head men’s basketball coach Mike Anderson was welcomed by Razorback fans in the Hot Springs area on Wednesday when Arkansas’ newest head coach played at the Magellan Golf Course in Hot Springs Village.
Anderson was joined by former Razorbacks Scottie Thurman, Dana Huckabee and Marvin Caston as well as former Athletic Director Frank Broyles at the outing which culminated with a fish fry not far from the course. Broyles’ foursome finished second at the event with Huckabee’s claiming third. Associate Director of the Razorback Foundation Sean Rochelle’s team claimed top honors.
Prior to a brief awards ceremony where team winners received framed artwork featuring former Razorback women’s golfer and LPGA Major champion Stacy Lewis, Anderson addressed the crowd of more than 100 players. Anderson’s message to the fans has remained the same since his first Razorback Club stop and included his wish to play an up-tempo style of basketball that will be the most exciting basketball in the South. He also encouraged those in attendance to get their tickets early, because his plan is to get Arkansas back to the top and expects that those tickets may be gone if fans wait too long.
Anderson’s next stop on the Razorback Club tour is Fort Smith and will be followed by a trip to Forest City.
