Arkansas Basketball, 1950s

Roughly 4,000 fans came out Thursday, Dec. 1, 1955 to watch Arkansas play its first game in Barnhill Fieldhouse. The Hogs lost a nail-biter to Southeast Oklahoma State, falling 64-65 to the Savage Storm. It was an inauspicious beginning for a building that eventually became synonymous with Hogs victories.
