Razorbacks coach Eric Musselman knows he will be facing an Aggies’ team that will be different than when they met on Jan. 31. He expects them to be better.
“This is a team that has only two losses in league,” said Musselman. “They have an incredible conference record right now. And this will be a very very challenging game, as will the other road games that we have left on our schedule. We have arguably the three best teams on the road our last three road games.”
• Texas A&M is Arkansas’ most common opponent. In this the 100th year of Razorback basketball, Texas A&M joins Baylor as the only team on this year’s Razorback schedule that also appeared on Arkansas’ first season of basketball (1924-24) when the three schools were members of the Southwest Conference.
• In Arkansas’ inaugural season of basketball, Arkansas lost on back-to-back days at Texas A&M, falling 35-37 on Feb. 20 and 32-17 on Feb. 21 to the Aggies.
• Arkansas and Texas A&M have met on 165 previous occasions and are meeting for the second time in 16 days (Arkansas defeated A&M 81-70 on Jan. 31). The next closest, most common Razorback opponents are Texas and SMU, each at 155 games.
• The Razorbacks own a 106-59 advantage in the series. The 106 wins are the most wins for Arkansas versus an opponent. The only other teams Arkansas has 100-plus wins again are TCU (105) and Rice (104).
• The Hogs have a slight 11-8 advantage in the series since A&M joined the SEC for the 2012-13 season.
• However, Texas A&M leads 39-38 in games played in College Station and is 6-2 versus Arkansas in Reed Arena since A&M joined the SEC.
• Arkansas was the only SEC team to open league play by playing four of its first six on the road. Arkansas will be the only SEC team to play each of its final three road games at the current top three teams in the SEC standings at Texas A&M (2/15), at Alabama (2/25) and at Tennessee (2/28).
