Arkansas’ road woes continue in SEC at LSU

Arkansas opened Southeastern Conference play on the road with a

56-53 loss at LSU on Wednesday.

It was a familiar feeling for the Razorbacks (11-4, 1-1), who

haven’t had a winning road record in the SEC since they won

finished as national runners-up under then coach Nolan Richardson

during the 1994-95 season.

Arkansas is 4-21 on the road in conference play under coach John

Pelphrey. For the Razorbacks to reach their goal of returning to

the NCAA tournament for the first time in three seasons, they’ll

have to improve on that mark this season.

Fortunately for Arkansas, it is 10-0 at home this season. That

record will be put to the test on Saturday when the Razorbacks host

Alabama (10-6, 2-0), which won at Mississippi State last

weekend.
