Alabama Men’s Basketball Travels to Square Off at Arkansas
Alabama will begin the month of February when it plays its fourth road contest over the last six games, as the Tide travels to Fayetteville, Ark., to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks on Wednesday at 6 p.m. CT. It will mark the lone meeting between the two teams this season.
Alabama and Arkansas will meet for the 60th time in series history with the Razorbacks owning a narrow 31-28 lead. Arkansas, who claimed a 62-61 victory over the Tide in the lone meeting between the two teams a year ago, has won consecutive games in the series. Wednesday's game will be the 25th time Alabama has played at Fayetteville, as the Tide has won just six times at Arkansas (6-18).
Alabama won for the eighth time in its last 10 games with a 71-62 victory over Mississippi State. With the win, the Crimson Tide swept the season series with the Bulldogs, which includes a 68-58 win in Starkville, Miss., on Jan. 3. Braxton Key led the Tide with a game-high 18 points, while Dazon Ingram added 15 points.
Wednesday's game will be televised on SEC Network with Dave Neal (play-by-play) and Chris Spatola (analyst) on the call. Fans can listen to the radio broadcast on 95.3 the Bear as Chris Stewart (play-by-play) and Bryan Passink (analyst) will call all the action.
