FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas' standout group of four freshmen is about to experience Southeastern Conference play for the first time.
The Razorbacks (11-3) open SEC play against No. 15 Mississippi State on Saturday night. Arkansas has won six straight after back-to-back losses to Connecticut and Oklahoma last month, and Razorbacks coach Mike Anderson hopes the experience has paid off.
Arkansas was 18-13 overall last season, finishing 7-9 in SEC play and missing the NCAA tournament for the third straight year. The Razorbacks have finished with a winning record in the SEC only twice since the 2000-01 season.
BJ Young leads Arkansas with 14.1 points per game.
The Bulldogs (13-2) are led by senior guard Dee Bost (15.9 ppg) and junior forward Arnett Moultrie, who averages 16.8 points and 11.4 rebounds per game.
