Arkansas learns SEC Men’s Basketball League games

FAYETTEVILLE- The Southeastern Conference announced the men’s basketball conference opponents for the 2022-23 season on Wednesday. The Razorbacks will face five teams home and away, including Alabama, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri and Texas A&M.

Arkansas will also host Florida, Georgia, Ole Miss and Mississippi State on a trip to Auburn, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

Times, dates and TV information will be announced later.

REMARKS:

  • This season will be only the second time since the Razorbacks joined the SEC (1991-92) that Arkansas and Kentucky will meet twice in the same regular season. The only other time came in 2013-14 when Arkansas swept Kentucky with a pair of overtime wins. First, Arkansas defeated #13 Kentucky in Fayetteville (January 14, 2014). Next, the Razorbacks handed the 17th-ranked Wildcats a 71-67 loss at Rupp Arena (February 27, 2014).
  • Arkansas and Missouri will play a home-and-away series in each of the 11 years since the Tigers joined the SEC (2012-13).
  • Arkansas and LSU have met for a home-and-away series in all but two seasons since the Razorbacks joined the SEC (1991-92). The Razorbacks and Tigers only met once in 2013 (in Baton Rouge) and once in 2015 (in Fayetteville).
  • Arkansas and Texas A&M will play a home-and-away series for the ninth time in 11 years since the Aggies joined the conference. The teams played twice in the Aggies’ inaugural season in the SEC (2012-13) and only met once in 2014 and 2015. The teams were required to play twice each regular season every year since the season 2015-16. Note: Teams only played once in 2020-21 due to COVID.
  • Arkansas and Tennessee will play only once in 2022-23, marking the fifth time in nine years the schools have had a one-game series. Four of those five have one thing in common…being played at Thompson-Boling Arena (2023, 2021, 2019 and 2017). Since 2013-14, Arkansas will play in Knoxville for the ninth time, compared to five games played in Fayetteville and two in the SEC tournament.
  • On the other end of a scheduling oddity, Arkansas will play at Vanderbilt for only the fourth time since 2014-15. In the last 12 meetings with the Commodores, seven have been at Bud Walton Arena, three at Vandy’s Memorial Gym and two at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for the SEC Tournament.
