Tulsa @ Arkansas
Current Records: Tulsa 8-2; Arkansas 8-1
What to Know
After a few days' rest for both teams, the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Tulsa Golden Hurricane will meet up at 1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Bud Walton Arena. Arkansas has been getting the ball to fall more lately as they've increased their point totals each of their last three games.
Although neither team could take care of the ball -- they combined for 30 turnovers -- the Razorbacks prevailed over the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers 86-79 on Saturday. The Razorbacks' loss shouldn't obscure the performances of G Desi Sills, who had 20 points, and G Jimmy Whitt Jr., who posted a double-double on 17 points and 12 rebounds.
Meanwhile, Tulsa didn't have too much trouble with the Boise State Broncos on Wednesday as they won 69-56. Four players on Tulsa scored in the double digits: G Isaiah Hill (14), G Darien Jackson (12), G Lawson Korita (11), and G Brandon Rachal (10).
Arkansas is the favorite in this one, with an expected 12-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors in their past four games, so buyers beware.
Tulsa's win lifted them to 8-2 while Arkansas' defeat dropped them down to 8-1. We'll see if Tulsa can repeat their recent success or if Arkansas bounces back and reverse their fortune.
