FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas is ahead of schedule under first-year coach Mike Anderson.
The Razorbacks (14-5, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) beat Michigan on Saturday for their second win over a ranked team, keeping them undefeated in Bud Walton Arena this season.
The early success has come despite having only nine scholarship players following a season-ending knee injury to leading scorer Marshawn Powell after the season's second game. It's also come sooner than expected for a program that has missed the NCAA tournament the last three seasons, which led to the firing of coach John Pelphrey in March.
For all the early success, however, Arkansas can't afford a letdown when it returns to SEC play against Auburn (12-7, 2-3) on Wednesday night.
