Razorback fans, rejoice! Basketball season is just around the corner, so we can finally enjoy watching the Hogs again! We can forget all the woes of football season and enjoy the sport that we’re actually good at.
The new season kicks off Friday night in Fayetteville against Samford at Bud Walton Arena.
Last season ended on a positive note, even if it was one of the most heartbreaking moments in recent memory. The Razorbacks lost a nail-biter to top-ranked and eventual National Champion North Carolina in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
The squad did lose a few key players such as Moses Kingsley but kept the core together enough that we should expect a solid season that builds on the successes of last year. This team can make the Sweet 16.
Here are all the games this season as well as my predictions for each. Enjoy, and Go Hogs.
