• This will be the 161st meeting between Arkansas and Texas A&M. The Razorbacks own a 103-57 advantage in the series and the series is tied, 38-38, in games played at A&M. The Hogs have a slight 8-6 advantage in games since A&M joined the SEC for the 2012-13 season. ­

• Texas A&M is one of six teams that Arkansas has played over 100 times and one of three teams the Razorbacks have at least 100 wins against.

• The Aggies are the Razorbacks’ most common opponent with 160 games played in the series. The teams met in Arkansas’ first season of basketball (1923-24) until 1990-91. The teams met once in 2010 in Dallas then the series resumed when A&M joined the SEC in 2012-13.

• After a 28-point road win at South Carolina, Arkansas climbed seven spots to 12th —the program’s highest ever NCAA NET Rankings.

• Arkansas has clinched a double-bye for the SEC Tournament and the #2 seed, meaning the Razorbacks will not play until the quarterfinals on Friday – Mar. 12 – at 6 pm.

• Arkansas’ 12 wins are the most since the 2016-17 Hogs won 12 (12-6).

• The second-place regular-season finish is the program’s best since finishing 2nd in 2014-15.

• Arkansas has won 20 games for the second straight season and Coach Musselman has won at least 20 games in each of his six seasons as a collegiate head coach.

• Not only was Arkansas 6-0 in the month of February, the Razorbacks tallied five Quad 1 wins in the month vs Alabama, at Missouri, vs Florida, vs LSU and at Kentucky.

• Arkansas has won 10-straight SEC games, its best since winning 11 straight SEC games to close the 1993-94 season.

Overall, Arkansas won 13 straight during that stretch with a regular-season win over Montevallo mixed in the SEC games and an SEC tourney win over Georgia. The Hogs won 11-straight Southwest Conference games in the 1990-91, 1989-90 and 1980-81 seasons.

Arkansas was a perfect 16-0 in the SWC in 1976-77 as part of an 18-game overall league win streak (final SWC game of 1975-76, all 16 SWC games in 1976-77 and first two SWC games in 1977-78).
