2010-2011 Record: 18-13 (7-9)
Arkansas has a new head coach in Mike Anderson and Razorback fans hope that means a return to the NCAA Tournament. The Razorbacks haven’t gone dancing in three years, but a strong recruiting class has the Arkansas faithful hoping for big things this season. Arkansas should make a return to the up-tempo style they employed during Nolan Richardson’s years at helm. Anderson was an assistant under Richardson for seventeen years and hopes to bring the Razorbacks back to the prominence they enjoyed in the early nineties. The backcourt will look for an immediate impact from freshmen B.J. Young and Rashad Madden. Arkansas should be much improved this season and the Hogs hope to find themselves fighting for a spot in the postseason.
