Razorbacks To Play at Miami for SEC/ACC Challenge

FAYETTEVILLE – The Arkansas men’s basketball program will face the Miami Hurricanes in the second annual SEC/ACC Challenge, ESPN announced today. The game will be played on Dec. 3 (Tuesday) at Miami’s Watsco Center in Coral Gables. Network designations and tip-off times will be announced at a later date.

The Razorbacks and Hurricanes have only met on one previous occasion when the two programs were paired in the first round of the 2000 NCAA Tournament in Nashville. #23 Miami, the sixth seed, defeated 11th-seeded Arkansas, 75-71.

Ironically, Razorback head coach John Calipari will be facing the Hurricanes for the second time in as many seasons for the SEC/ACC Challenge. Last season, Calipari’s 12th-ranked Kentucky Wildcats beat #8 Miami, 95-73, in Rupp Arena.

Arkansas defeated #7 Duke, 80-75, on ESPN before a Bud Walton Arena record crowd of 20,334 as part of last year’s Challenge. Trevon Brazile had 19 points and 11 rebounds with two blocked shots in the Razorback victory and was later named the SEC Player of the Week for his effort.

Last season — thanks to wins by Arkansas and Calipari, the SEC and ACC tied, 7-7, in the inaugural Challenge.
