Arkansas Razorbacks Internet Chatter: January 3, 2014 - UTSA Preview, SEC Hoops Countdown

News, notes and interesting reads for Hog fans. *Arkansas' RPI takes another hit*


UTSA Preview – Not an impressive team by any means, but there are some things that stand out when looking over the Roadrunners' marks this season. The team is sitting at 4-8 this season, but are led by several guys who, on any given night, could fill it up. UTSA enters the contest with Arkansas with four players averaging double-figures in scoring, three of which have poured in 24, 28 and 30 points in games this season. Here are all the game notes and whatnot to have you learned up by tip-off Saturday night.

Hoops Psychologist – Reinforcing the theme that began last summer with this team, Mike Anderson is pulling out all the stops to try and pull his team closer together this season. With the road woes Arkansas has endured the last few years under Anderson, he has decided to employ a sports psychologist to the staff. The psychologist, who was around the bench and the players during the High Point game, told the team to turn the energy up on defense (probably much to Anderson's liking). Team chemistry is also a major focal point and, so far, Arkansas is sharing the rock more this year, making for an even more entertaining brand of basketball.

SEC Hoops Countdown – Last time, I presented you with the A-Z series on Arkansas hoops from one of my co-workers at the Arkansas Traveler. And now, with the conference opener just five days away, he and the countdown are beginning to wind down. But there's still time to catch it. Here is his latest installment: Underdogs. Be on the lookout for more on the Traveler website.
