FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Mike’d Up, the weekly radio show dedicated to University of Arkansas basketball, begins Monday night at 7 p.m. at Sassy’s Red House in Fayetteville.
The one-hour program, which begins its second season at Sassy’s, gives fans an opportunity to interact with Razorback coaches and players while also getting an opportunity to learn more about the personalities that they witness on the court. Hosted by Chuck Barrett, the program features interviews with head coach Mike Anderson and Arkansas student-athletes and coaches. Fans in attendance will also have an opportunity to ask the head Razorback their own questions.
With the Razorbacks holding a 4-2 record and coming off a trip to the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational, tonight’s show will feature head coach Mike Anderson and freshmen big men Bobby Portis and Moses Kingsley. Both Portis and Kingsley were top 50 recruits coming out of high school.
