FAYETTEVILLE — The best home schedule of the Mike Anderson era has resulted in the third sellout of the year for Arkansas, as the Texas A&M game on Feb. 17 is officially sold out on the primary market.

It marks the third sellout of the year, as Razorback fans packed Verizon Arena to capacity on Dec. 16 and followed with another raucous crowd of nearly 19,000 two weeks later in Bud Walton Arena, when Arkansas knocked off its second top-20 opponent in a five-game span.

Arkansas is unbeaten in Bud Walton Arena this year at 8-0, including victories over No. 14 Minnesota and No. 19 Tennessee, where a combined 36,279 fans packed the building and created one of the best home court advantages in the country.

According to KenPom metrics, the Razorbacks have one of the top-five best home court advantages in the nation.

In Bud Walton Arena this year, Arkansas has a +181 scoring margin, including a 22.6 average margin of victory.

Arkansas opens a two-game homestand Wednesday night when LSU comes to town and fewer than 100 lower-level tickets remain to see the Razorback take on a Tiger team fresh off a road victory over No. 11 Texas A&M.

A new-look Missouri squad comes to Fayetteville this Saturday and under 600 upper-level tickets remain for the second of five Saturday SEC games in Bud Walton Arena.

The Razorbacks return home with a top-20 RPI and top-15 strength of schedule looking to jump back into the win column in what is one of the toughest conferences in college basketball this season.

Entering the week, the Southeastern Conference led the country with 11 top-70 RPI teams, including a nation-best nine teams with top-50 strength of schedules.
