Arkansas' 2011-12 basketball schedule


I'm going to stay away from predicting SEC records until late December when I have a better idea of what each team looks like. I'll make a prediction on their non-conference schedule... 13-2 if USC Upstate is a regular season game (12-2 if not). They got a pretty easy non conference slate with a trip to UConn as their toughest road game. Other games of note are at Oklahoma, and home to Oakland and Michigan (Jan 21st).

I for one am glad to see Mike Anderson at Arkansas... should bring SEC basketball up a notch or two.

I'm also glad Mike Anderson is back in the conference. A healthy Arkansas basketball program is good for the SEC.

Having written that, he's going to have to play a lot of young, inexperienced players. Talented, yes, but young and inexperienced. That system he runs is not for the faint of heart. It will be interesting to see if he can get players he didn't recruit for his style of play to buy in immediately.

it'll be 2-3 years before we see the team he really wants out there, but there won't be a lack of effort going forward.
