Arkansas to face North Texas in exhibit on October 30
FAYETTEVILLE – The highly anticipated opponent for Arkansas Men’s Basketball Second Exhibition Game has been set. The Razorbacks, fresh out of the NCAA Elite 8 last season, will host the NCAA North Texas tournament team on October 30 (Saturday). The departure is fixed at 4 p.m.
North Texas was C-USA champion last season and reached the NCAA second round after beating Purdue in the first round.
In accordance with NCAA regulations, Arkansas may host an NCAA Division I opponent for exposure if the game has a charitable component. A portion of the proceeds from concessions and merchandise sales against Mean Green will go to benefit COVID relief efforts in the state through United Way of NWA through the Arkansas 211 program. Arkansas 211 has provided a critical response to the Arkansans across the state since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The game is sold out as it is part of the 2021-22 season subscription package.
Arkansas will play its first exhibition game this Sunday (October 24) at 3 p.m. against East Central. Like the North Texas Game, the first exhibit is sold out and is part of the 2021-22 season pass package.
