FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas will play the backend of its current two-game homestand on Saturday (Jan. 22) versus Texas A&M. Tip-off is set for 7:30 pm (CT) and the game will be televised on SEC Network.

  • This will be the 163rd meeting between Arkansas and Texas A&M and the second in 14 days. The Razorbacks own a 104-58 advantage in the series. Arkansas leads, 59-15, in games played at Fayetteville.
  • The Hogs have a slight 9-7 advantage — including a 7-1 record in Bud Walton Arena — since A&M joined the SEC for the 2012-13 season.
  • Two Saturdays ago, Arkansas was down 17 midway through the second half but clawed its way back to make it a one-point game with 1:38 left. However, Texas A&M answered with a 3-pointer and made its free throws down the stretch to win 86-81. Arkansas was led by JD Notae, who made five 3-pointers and scored a season-high 31 points – his best point production as a Razorback.
  • Texas A&M is one of six teams that Arkansas has played over 100 times and one of three teams the Razorbacks have at least 100 wins against. The Aggies are the Razorbacks’ most common opponent with 162 games played in the series which dates back to Arkansas’ first season of basketball (1923-24).
  • Arkansas was 27-of-33 at the free throw line versus South Carolina on Tuesday. With that, the Razorbacks now lead the NCAA in free throws made at 311 and ranks second in free throw attempts with 422.
  • Arkansas has held its last three opponents to under 60 points and to little surprise has won all three. In fact, Arkansas is 16-0 under Coach Musselman when holding opponents below 60 points.
