FAYETTEVILLE – Arkansas men’s basketball will host the Southern University Jaguars on Wednesday December 9thTipoff is set for 7:00 p.m. at Bud Walton Arena. It was also announced that the Razorbacks’ home men’s basketball game on Saturday December 12 with Central Arkansas will now start at 7:00 p.m.

The UCA start time was moved due to Arkansas football hosting top-ranked Alabama on Saturday at 11:00 am on ESPN.

Arkansas was originally scheduled to play at Tulsa on Tuesday December 8 but the Golden Hurricane was forced to postpone the contest due to COVID-19 protocols. Southern was scheduled to play at top-ranked Gonzaga on Thursday December 10 prior to Gonzaga pausing all team activities due to COVID-19 protocols.

Arkansas and Southern have met on two previous occasions with the Razorbacks winning both meetings. Arkansas defeated the Jaguars 76-75 in Pine Bluff on Nov. 29, 1985, and 86-68 in Bud Walton Arena to open the 2015-16 season.
