Listen to Coach Hale
Each schedule does spring and their spring game schedule is a little different. For us, we are committed to being the best program in the country. To do this, you have to play the best competition you can find. We like this schedule and believe we will be better off late spring than early. That’s the point.
Arkansas is coming off the most successful season in school history, winning the program’s best 19 games and making its first Elite 8 appearance. The Hogs also won their third straight regular-season title in the SEC and advanced to their sixth consecutive SEC Tournament Finals.
