Texas A&M-Arkansas, Baylor-Gonzaga set for Dallas

DALLAS (AP) - Texas A&M will revive Southwest Conference memories against Arkansas and Baylor will take on Gonzaga in a doubleheader Dec. 18 at the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

The nationally televised games announced Thursday at American Airlines Center will include the first meeting between the Aggies and Razorbacks since 1991, when Arkansas left for the Southeastern Conference.

Arkansas fans are familiar with Dallas, where former Mavericks home Reunion Arena was known as "Barnhill South," a reference to the Razorbacks' old home court. Arkansas won four SWC tournaments in Dallas.

Baylor is parlaying a trip to the NCAA regional finals last spring into a high-profile matchup with Gonzaga, a mainstay in the NCAA tournament.
