Who's Going?

NWA Daily

We’re sure most of you know, but the Razorback basketball season is about to begin, and there are lots of new pregame initiatives to look forward to. 

  • Before tip-off: There will be giveaways, happy hour, pre-game routines from the team, and all sorts of fun. The first game is on Nov. 9
  • Full house: Bud Walton Arena is completely sold out through this entire season, which hasn’t happened since 2001. If you have a ticket and can’t make the game, you can transfer it to someone who can attend through the Razorback app.
