Arkansas Basketball, 1990s

The 1993-94 season unveiled a new home for the Hogs — their first since moving to Barnhill Arena in the 1950s. Bud Walton Arena was built south of Barnhill and Razorback Stadium, but still on campus. BWA was everything Barnhill wasn’t: luxurious, spacious and ritzy. It has since been christened the Basketball Palace of Mid-America. Before leaving Barnhill, former Hogwild band director Jim Robken helped capture the “Spirit of Barnhill” in a crystal bowl that was late placed in the lobby of Bud Walton Arena.
