Arkansas Basketball, 1970s

This unheralded era of Arkansas basketball was marked by high-scoring affairs and renewed fan interest. The Razorbacks’ plodding, drowsy basketball of the 1950s and 1960s was officially extinct. Arkansas had only scored 100 or more points six times between 1950 and 1969. But under Van Eman, breaking the century mark became routine. Arkansas’ 131 points against SWC rival Baylor in 1972 is still the school record for points scored against a conference opponent.
