Hogs find game to replace Tulsa postponement … and at home

Arkansas will host the Southern University Jaguars on Wednesday to fill in for the game lost when Tulsa cancelled a regularly-scheduled game.

Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. at Bud Walton Arena.

It was also announced that the Razorbacks’ home men’s basketball game on Saturday with Central Arkansas will now start at 7 p.m.

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

The Hogs were originally scheduled to play at Tulsa on Tuesday 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 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.

The Hogs 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.
