Arkansas Basketball Preview: Mike Anderson Media Day Recap

Beth Hall-USA TODAY Sports

The Razorbacks held a media day on Thursday to prep for Sunday's Red-White game, which this year is being called "Hog Wild Hoops"

It appears Mike Anderson basically went through his roster and provided a brief update and preview of the players. Brief enough to fit in a tweet (or two or three)!

So are we, Coach. We're very anxious.

That seems like an awful lot of free throws for a scrimmage. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the Hogs made them, but let's avoid sending other teams to the free throw line 38 times in a game.

That's fine, as long as the guys on the committee can play point guard.

Also part of the discussion, the NCAA's new rules emphasizing calling fouls on hand-checking. It's likely to be a bigger issue for teams that use an aggressive, attacking, full-court defense, you know, like Arkansas'. And it should benefit teams with more athletic scorers because defense's won't be allowed to be as physical as we're used to.

Here's a rundown from USA Today.
