▪ ABOUT MISSOURI (10-16, 3-10 SEC): Missouri has won back-to-back SEC games for the first time under coach Kim Anderson. Maybe it’s time to get that first road win. “We talked about that a little bit after the (South Carolina) game, ‘Let’s go on the road and maybe cross another bridge,’ ” Anderson said. The Tigers lug a 23-game road losing streak, including 20 straight in conference, to Arkansas. The good news that the last road win came at Bud Walton Arena on Jan. 28, 2014. Senior forward Ryan Rosburg is one of five MU players in the Big 12/SEC era to score at least 17 points with a minimum of five rebounds in four consecutive games. He joins Kareem Rush (2001), Arthur Johnson (2003), Leo Lyons (2008) and DeMarre Carroll (2009).
▪ ABOUT ARKANSAS (12-14, 5-8 SEC): The Razorbacks are in a free fall. Arkansas’ current three-game skid includes road losses at Mississippi State and Mississippi along with a home loss Wednesday against Auburn. Coach Mike Anderson’s squad has struggled shooting and rebounding during that stretch. The Hogs also allowed 15 three-pointers in the loss to Auburn. Junior guard Dusty Hannahs averages 15.9 points per game as a part-time starter.
