The Sports Bank’s college basketball season previews undergo a face lift this season. Rather than counting down the top 111 teams in 111 days, we will go conference-by-conference. I’ve already counted down the Pac-12 and Big 12 now we turn our attention to the SEC.
If any team is poised to supplant Kentucky or Florida in the top two of the SEC, it is the Arkansas Razorbacks...
Four-star junior Kevaughn Allen from North Little Rock committed to Florida Wednesday night. Allen just adds to the list of highly recruited in-staters that Arkansas basketball has missed out.

Arkansas finished the season 22-12 overall and 10-8 in the SEC. Seniors Coty Clarke, Fred Gulley, Kikko Haydar, Rickey Scott and Mardracus Wade will be missed and did a great job of laying the foundation for this program under Mike Anderson.
It wasn’t one of Arkansas’ best...
Fred Gulley of Arkansas had a monster dunk on Cal's Jeff Powers in a NIT game on Monday night. It happened in the first half with Cal up by 22 points.

Normally getting into the NIT is a letdown, it means you missed the NCAA Tournament and you’re playing in the “secondary” tournament. But don’t tell that to Arkansas guard Fred Gulley III who just absolutely destroyed California’s Jeff Powers. NCAA Tournament and NIT combined, Gulley may have the dunk of the college basketball season. However, […]

This one’s going to be #1 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays of the Night.
The post Arkansas’ Fred Gulley III Absolutely...

Arkansas had another chance to play in Bud Walton Arena this season. The spectacular 110-point finish over Ole Miss on March 5th was thought to be their last home game of the season, but they were wrong.
The 2013-14 Arkansas Razorbacks have had a roller coaster season which has included several thrilling victories, but also some head-scratching losses. This up-and-down play has become a common theme for the Razorbacks ever since head coach Mike Anderson took office in 2011.
Another notable trait of Anderson’s teams has been the inability to play well consistently away from Fayetteville...

''It was crazy; I felt the hate,'' Qualls said. ''It's just a crazy atmosphere. You can tell it (was about) things more than basketball.''
