FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (ArkansasRazorbacks.com) – Season tickets for the 2014-15 Arkansas men’s basketball campaign are now on sale, as head coach Mike Anderson’s fourth edition of the Razorbacks and their #Fastest40 style of play return six of their top seven scorers from last year’s club that won 22 games.
Season tickets for the general public are available now at the Razorback Ticket Center, by phone at 1-800-982-HOGS (4647) and online at ArkansasRazorbacks.com. Renewal applications have been mailed to previous season ticket holders and, to retain priority seating, will need to be returned by Friday, August 15.
Season ticket packages are as low as $360 and include admission into 18 regular season and two exhibition games at Bud Walton Arena where Arkansas has posted a 51-6 record over its three seasons under Anderson. For the first time, fans can utilize a four-month payment plan option to purchase season tickets, splitting the cost of the nine SEC home contests, nine non-conference games and two exhibition matchups into four equal payments. The four-month plan is valid until July 31, and beginning on Aug. 1, a three-month payment plan will be available. To purchase season tickets with the payment plan, please call 1-800-982-4647.
The Razorbacks home schedule includes matchups against ACC foe Wake Forest and Atlantic 10 member Dayton who advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight in 2014. The entire non-conference schedule and SEC opponents that will be visiting Bud Walton Arena will be available at a later date.
For the 21st straight season in Bud Walton Arena, Arkansas finished in the top 30 in the country in home attendance in 2013-14. The Razorbacks are one of just 13 Division I programs to rank in the top 30 in national attendance every year since 1994, while last year’s combined attendance of 280,465 fans over 20 games was the largest since 2000-01 and the 10th-most in the country.
Fans that made their way to BWA were certainly entertained, as Arkansas averaged 86.7 points per game at home, highlighted by a quartet of 100-point outings, and finished the year 22-12 overall. The Razorbacks welcome back the core of the 2013-14 roster that led the SEC in scoring (80.1), assists (15.3), assist/turnover ratio (1.3), turnover margin (+5.5) and steals (8.4).
Half (7) of the 2014-15 roster is made up of players from Arkansas, including the team’s leading scorer Rashad Madden (12.7 ppg) and top rebounder Bobby Portis (6.8 rpg) from a year ago. Madden became the first Arkansas native to lead the team in scoring since Sonny Weems in 2007-08, while Portis nearly became the first freshman in program history to lead the way in scoring and rebounding as he also added 12.3 points en route to earning All-SEC second team accolades.
