Hannahs And Whitt Join First Mike’d Up Of The Year

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Newcomers Dusty Hannahs and Jimmy Whitt will join Mike Anderson on the first Mike’d Up of the season, the weekly radio show dedicated to Arkansas basketball at Sassy’s Red House in Fayetteville on Monday at 7 p.m.

The one-hour program gives fans an opportunity to interact with Razorback coaches and players, while also getting a chance to learn more about the personalities they witness on the court. Hosted by the voice of the Razorbacks, Chuck Barrett, the program features interviews with Coach Anderson and Arkansas student-athletes, coaches and staff members. Fans in attendance will also have an opportunity to ask the head Razorback their own questions. Fans can also send in questions to Coach Anderson on the day of each show via Twitter to @RazorbackMBB and by using the hashtag #MikedUp.

Hannahs has anchored the Arkansas offense to open the year, averaging a team-best 19.3 points per game and draining 11-of-16 shots from behind the arc. He went 5-for-5 from long range against Charleston Southern to become the fourth player in school history to make five-plus treys in a game without a miss. Whitt is one of four Razorbacks averaging double figures and is coming off a career-high 14-point effort, where he went 6-for-13 from the field in 26 minutes of action.

After starting the year 2-1 with victories over Southern University and Charleston Southern, Arkansas travels to Brooklyn, New York, this week to take part in the NIT Season Tip-Off. The Razorbacks will battle Georgia Tech on Thanksgiving Day, before facing Stanford or No. 11/8 Villanova the following day.

Mike’d Up can be heard across the Razorback Sports Network from IMG College across the state. All but one of the 12 shows are held on Mondays with Thursday, Jan. 14 serving as the lone exception due to the game schedule.
