FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas will look to get back to its winning ways on Tuesday (Feb. 12) when the Razorbacks play at Missouri. Game time is set for 8 pm and the game will be telecast on ESPNU.
This will be the 51st meeting between Arkansas and Missouri — and the second time this season as the Razorbacks claimed a 70-62 victory over the Tigers last month to start a four-game SEC winning streak. Arkansas owns a 27-23 advantage in the series. Mizzou owns a 14-10 advantage in games played in Columbia.
Since Missouri joined the SEC for the 2012 season, Arkansas holds an 8-5 advantage over the span. The teams have split home-and-home series each of the last two years, but Arkansas has won seven of the last nine, including five straight from 2015-17.
- Dating back to Jan. 15 (at Tennessee), Arkansas is closing a nine-game span that includes six road games (at then #3 Tennessee, at then #18 Ole Miss, at then #13 Texas Tech, at then #19 LSU, at South Carolina Saturday and at Missouri Tuesday).
- The Razorbacks are one of two teams in the league to finish .500 or better in SEC play each of the last six years.
- However, Arkansas will close the regular season with home game in each of the final four Saturdays (Mississippi State on Feb. 16, Texas A&M on Feb. 23, Ole Miss on Mar. 2 and Alabama on Mar. 9 for the regular-season finale).
- Daniel Gafford, one of 10 candidates for the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award, is one of five players in the NCAA to shoot 60 percent from the field while averaging over 15 points and eight rebounds. Others include Eric Carter (Delaware), Matt Rafferty (Furman), Raasean Davis (NC Central) and Zion Williamson (Duke).
- Arkansas forced 21 turnovers at South Carolina and only committed 14. It was the first time this season the Razorbacks committed fewer than 15 turnovers and lost (9-1). Over the last six games, Arkansas has forced 20-plus turnovers four times. On offense over the last six games, Arkansas is only turning the ball over 13.0 times, including a season-low four versus Georgia.
- Isaiah Joe has made 82 3-pointers with the Arkansas record by a freshman being 83 by Rotnei Clarke in 2009.
