FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Arkansas basketball team begins its exhibition season Friday, Oct. 27, against Central Oklahoma at Bud Walton Arena.
Arkansas kicked off the public portion of its preseason last Saturday at the Red-White scrimmage. UCO, as Central Oklahoma is called, is a Division II team from Edmond, Okla. Edmond is a suburb of Oklahoma City.
The two schools have actually met before. Not recently, but back in 1941. Arkansas and Central Oklahoma played two games that season, back-to-back days, no less. Arkansas won the first, 43-24, then won again the next day, 42-25.
UCO finished middle of the pack last year in the Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletics Association, going 17-12 overall and 11-8 in conference play.
Arkansas is coming off a 26-10 season and a 12-6 year in the SEC. The Razorbacks made the SEC Tournament Championship Game and were a No. 8 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Arkansas beat Seton Hall in the first round and had eventual national champion North Carolina on the ropes with 90 seconds left in the second round.
