Hogs Headed To Maui

The Razorbacks Men's Basketball team will travel to Maui next week to compete in the 30th Maui Invitational in Hawaii. 

Arkansas is competing in the tournament for the third time. They finished as runner-up in 1991 and in sixth place in 2005.  

The Hogs will face California on Nov. 25 in the opening game in Maui. This is the second times the teams have faced each other. After the opening round, the Razorbacks will face either Minnesota or Syracuse on Nov. 26. The final day of games will be played on Nov. 27. 

Arkansas will have a chance to prove themselves (that they can win away from home) during the Maui Invitational. This will be the first games this season the Hogs will play away from Bud Walton Arena. Last season, the Razorbacks only won two games away from home. One win being at neutral site and the other at Auburn.

California is coming off their fourth NCAA tournament appearance in five seasons. While Arkansas has missed out on the tournament for five straight seasons. 

Baylor, Dayton, Gonzaga, Minnesota, Syracuse and host Chaminade round out the rest of the tournament.
