Arkansas Razorbacks Basketball Sports Links
The Arkansas Razorbacks basketball team represents the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas in NCAA Division I men's basketball competition. The school's team currently competes in the Southeastern Conference. The team last played in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament in 2007. The Razorbacks are currently coached by John Pelphrey.
Please note that the nickname "Razorbacks" is exclusive to men's teams and athletes at the school. Arkansas is one of a very small number of universities in the United States that operates completely separate men's and women's athletic departments. Women's teams at the school are formally nicknamed "Lady Razorbacks", but the short form of Lady'Backs is more widely used.
The basketball team plays its home games in Bud Walton Arena on the University of Arkansas campus. The Hogs under the coaching leadership of Nolan Richardson won the NCAA tournament in 1994 defeating Duke University, and appeared in the championship game the following year, but were beaten by UCLA. The Razorbacks have been to NCAA Final Four in 1941, 1945, 1978, 1990, 1994 and 1995.
