FAYETTEVILLE — A date has been set for Arkansas’ road game at Indiana this season.
The teams will meet on Sunday, Dec. 29 at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Ind., according to the Hoosiers’ schedule that was released Friday. Time and TV details were not available. The game serves as the conclusion of a home-and-home series.
Arkansas and Indiana split two meetings during the 2018-19 season. The Razorbacks defeated the Hoosiers 73-72 in Bud Walton Arena on Nov. 18, and Indiana eliminated Arkansas, 63-60, in the second round of the NIT on March 23.
The Hoosiers finished last season 19-16 overall and 8-12 in Big Ten play in coach Archie Miller's second season. Indiana will look to replace its top two leading scorers in Romeo Langford, selected 14th overall by the Boston Celtics in the 2019 NBA Draft, and forward Juwan Morgan.
Arkansas has yet to release its schedule for the coming season, but 11 dates have been learned through schedule releases by the Razorbacks' opponents.
