Arkansas Basketball, 1980s

In the first round of the NIT, Arkansas hosted Arkansas State. It was the fourth meeting between the two programs, with the last match up dating back nearly four decades. As Arkansas Fight noted, “Speculation was rampant that a loss to the then-Indians — whom, along with other in-state schools, Frank Broyles refused to schedule regular season games against — would result in (Richardson) getting canned.”
