— Arkansas announced 30 of its 31 games for the coming season on Friday, but the Razorbacks are still looking for an opponent to open the season against on opening weekend.

Home-and-home series against Missouri, Tennessee, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Mississippi State, and nationally-televised road games at Florida and Kentucky highlight Arkansas' SEC basketball schedule. This will be the first year Arkansas hasn't hosted either Florida or Kentucky since entering the SEC.

The Razorbacks will play 19 home games - 10 nonconference and nine SEC games - this season, including a matchup against Southeast Missouri State in North Little Rock.

Notable nonconference games against Wake Forest and Dayton at home, and on the road at SMU, Iowa State and Clemson had been announced prior to Friday.

Other nonconference opponents include North Texas, Iona, Delaware State, Nicholls State, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Northwestern State and Utah Valley. All of those games will be played at Bud Walton Arena.

The Razorbacks finished last season with a 22-12 record and second round appearance in the NIT.
