The University of Arkansas men’s basketball team looks to regroup at Bud Walton Arena, after a pair of road losses, on Saturday afternoon when it takes on the South Carolina Gamecocks at 12:47 p.m.  Following the contest, fans in attendance are invited to stay and watch the premiere of ESPN’s SEC Storied piece 40 Minutes of Hell.Arkansas (16-8, 4-5 SEC) returns home after a pair of tough road losses and hopes to end its losing skid at two.  On the line for the Razorbacks is their undefeated home record (16-0) and a chance to become the first team in school history to win 17 home games in a season.  But more importantly to Head Coach Mike Anderson and the Razorbacks is a chance to get back to .500 in Southeastern Conference play.

Sophomore Mardracus Wade had a tough first half against Georgia, but stepped up over the final 20 minutes to play much better defense and get his jump-shot going.  After a 0-for-3 first half, Wade buried five three-point baskets in five attempts and finished the game 5-of-9 from the field and 5-of-5 from three with two steals. Wade’s performance moved his season three-point percentage to 50 percent.

South Carolina (9-14, 1-8 SEC) has struggled of late and has not won a game on the road since defeating Clemson on Dec. 4.  The Gamecocks are led by senior Malik Cooke who averages 12.2 points per game and two-sport athlete Bruce Ellington (10.7).  The pair makes up about a third of the South Carolina offense and have combined for 85 of South Carolina’s 235 assists on the year.

Following the conclusion of the game, all fans in attendance are invited to stay at Bud Walton Arena to watch the world premiere of 40 Minutes of Hell, a piece produced by ESPN as a part of the SEC Storied series.  The show chronicles the life of former Arkansas Head Coach Nolan Richardson, his 1994 NCAA Championship team at Arkansas and the Razorback Basketball program.  Several former players as well as Coach Richardson himself will be in attendance for the event.

The Arkansas-South Carolina game will be broadcast on the radio across the Razorback Sports Network from IMG College with Chuck Barrett and Rick Schaeffer giving the call.  The game will also be shown on television by the SEC Network with Clay Matvick and Daymeon Fishback on the air.
