Preview and Gamethread: Arkansas vs Ole Miss

Arkansas takes on the Rebels in super cool uniforms.

NCAA Basketball: Arkansas at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Time: Noon CT

TV: SEC Network

Line: Arkansas -1

Location: Bud Walton Arena

The Hogs are turning back the clock today at Bud Walton Arena, with the reunion of the 1994 National Championship team. Arkansas is getting some pretty sweet throwbacks to wear as well in this one.

For the game itself, Arkansas has backed themselves into the bottom four teams of the standings, and this game is one they absolutely have to have to avoid that fate. The Rebels, who cruised against the Hogs in their first meeting, are very safe in terms of an NCAA Tournament birth, and are looking to improve their seeding for the SEC Tournament.

Arkansas is coming off one of their hardest fought games of the season in Rupp Arena, so it will be interesting to see what kind of hangover is there for them. Arkansas only has two games left in Bud Walton including this one, so the Hogs will need to use that home court to their advantage in this one that Vegas has surprisingly close.
