Arkansas at a glance
Eds: With BKC--Arkansas Preview
By The Associated Press=
Last season: 27-9, lost in second round of NCAA Tournament.
Nickname: Razorbacks Coach: Mike Anderson.
Key returners: Senior Anthlon Bell was Arkansas' fourth-leading scorer a season ago with an average of 7.9 points per game, and the 6-foot-3 guard will have plenty of opportunities to improve upon that this season. Junior forward Moses Kingsley should make a big jump after averaging 3.6 points and more than one block per game in only 10.9 minutes per game last season.
Who left: Six of the Razorbacks' top seven scorers. It's a list that includes SEC player of the year Bobby Portis, the high-flying Michael Qualls and 79 percent of Arkansas' overall scoring from a season ago. Assists leader Ky Madden and the versatile Alandise Harris graduated.
The Skinny: After its best season under coach Mike Anderson, Arkansas enters this season devoid of much of its talent from a year ago - though talented freshman guard Jimmy Whitt is expected to step in right away and be a top scoring threat.
