Arkansas Basketball, 1950s

Despite a 12-12 record in Askew’s first season, Arkansas and Baylor shared the SWC title. It was the Hogs’ worst year since 1937 and an omen for Askew’s rocky tenure. In 1951, the Hogs won 13 games, but finished fourth in the SWC. The 1952 team imploded, posting the school’s first losing record and finishing tied for last in the SWC. Arkansas hadn’t finished so poorly since its inaugural season in 1924.
