Arkansas Basketball, 1980s

Paired with Hastings was U.S. Reed, a stellar all-around guard from Pine Bluff. In 1980, Reed led the team in minutes and steals, while finishing second in scoring. The duo guided Arkansas to a 21-8 record overall and a stellar 13-3 mark in the SWC. But the Hogs finished second in the conference to Texas A&M. The Aggies also edged the Hogs 52-50 in the conference tournament championship.
