Looking to make its third NCAA Tournament appearance in a four-year span for the first time in 10 years, the Arkansas men’s basketball team will host a watch party on Selection Sunday inside Bud Walton Arena, as the Razorbacks await their destination in the Big Dance.
The event is free and open to the public, with doors opening at 4:30 p.m. and the Selection Show beginning at 5 p.m. Fans can enter Bud Walton Arena at the south entrance and watch the show live on one of the biggest center-hung videoboards in collegiate athletics. The facility’s standard clear bag policy will be in effect for the event.
The Razorbacks are coming off their third SEC Tournament semifinals appearance in the last four seasons and head to the NCAA Tournament winning eight of the last 11 games.
Arkansas will make its 32nd appearance in the NCAA Tournament, holding a 42-31 all-time record in the previous 31 appearances and a 20-11 mark in its first game of the tournament.
A bid into the Big Dance will give head coach Mike Anderson his ninth appearance as a head coach. He holds a 9-8 all-time record, having advanced as far as the Elite Eight in 2008-09 during his days at Missouri.
