FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Mike Anderson would rather forget his first go-around through the Southeastern Conference.
The Arkansas coach hopes the second time’s a charm, beginning Wednesday night when the Razorbacks open SEC play at league newcomer Texas A&M.
Arkansas (9-4) lost its first six conference road games last season on its way to a 1-7 mark away from home in Anderson’s first season as coach. The Razorbacks haven’t fared much better so far this season, posting an 0-3 record away from home — including losses at No. 2 Michigan and neutral-court losses to Arizona State and Wisconsin.
Despite last season’s struggles and the early woes this season, Arkansas is coming off a recent five-game winning streak heading into the game against the Aggies (10-3).
