Ending the year with a 23-12 overall record, Arkansas won eight of its final 12 games to advance to the NCAA Tournament for a third time in a four-year span for the first time in 10 years. It marked the 11th time in his 16-year coaching career that head coach Mike Anderson led his team to a 20-win season, including four of the last five years at Arkansas.
Arkansas picked up five wins over ranked opponents this season, including four at home. Four ranked home wins are the most in school history, as Razorback fans brought life back to Bud Walton Arena, selling out six games in the Palace, to go along with another in North Little Rock.
Senior guards Daryl Macon and Jaylen Barford became the sixth and seventh players in school history, respectively, to eclipse the 1,000 career points mark in two seasons and the 42nd and 43rd players overall. Both surpassed the milestone in Arkansas’ home finale, becoming the first teammates in program history to accomplish the feat in the same game.
