Thomas And Cook Join Mike’d Up On Monday

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Juniors Dustin Thomas and Arlando Cook will join Mike Anderson on the sixth 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.

Thomas has started all 10 games for Arkansas during the non-conference slate and is averaging 7.3 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. He has scored in double figures three times, including a season-high 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting against Mount St. Mary’s. He grabbed eight rebounds against North Florida last week and has dished out an assist in five of the last six games.

Cook has provided some clutch minutes off the bench early in the year, averaging 3.3 points and 1.6 rebounds per contest. He came up big Saturday against Texas, playing a season-long 17 minutes and scoring six points. He went 4-for-4 from the charity stripe in the final two minutes, including hitting a pair of free throws with 38 seconds left to make it a two possession game.

Arkansas has won six straight games with two more December non-conference tilts still left on the schedule. The Razorbacks will host North Dakota State on Tuesday, Dec. 20 at Bud Walton Arena, before taking on Sam Houston State in North Little Rock on Thursday, Dec. 22.

Mike’d Up can be heard across the Razorback Sports Network from IMG College throughout the state. To reserve your table for the show, call Sassy’s Red House at 479-856-6366 and tell them you want to get Mike’d Up with Mike Anderson.
