FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — After receiving dozens of hashtag ideas and suggestions for its trip to the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational via tweets sent to @RazorbackMBB last week, the University of Arkansas men’s basketball team opened its #MauiMonday series by having fans vote on the semifinal matchups. Four hashtag ideas make up the tournament field with fans voting for their favorite hashtag in each matchup on Twitter and Instagram. Starting today, fans have the opportunity to vote for two of the four finalists in the semifinal round. Votes will be accepted until midnight Monday and the finalists will move into the championship which will be voted on next #MauiMonday. The first semifinal matchup features #AloHogs (via @PigTrailEric) vs. #LeiUpWithHogs (via @Trent_Ritchie) while the other contest pins #HulaHogs (via @MikeWaddellUA) against #WooPigMaui (via @Drewsch_). The votes on Twitter and Instagram will be combined to determine each winner.
Tweets will be periodically released throughout the day requiring Twitter and Instagram users to favorite, retweet, like or comment on the photos to cast their vote on the team’s accounts, @RazorbackMBB and @Razorback_MBB (Instagram). This will be part of the team’s #MauiMonday series, featuring a different contest, theme or event each week
Arkansas is slated to open the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational with Pac-12 foe California on Monday, Nov. 25, at 2 p.m. CT on ESPN2.
