FAYETTEVILLE — The Arkansas men’s basketball team will return to Barnhill Arena for its annual Red-White game later this month.

The Razorbacks will play the intrasquad scrimmage at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 17, according to a news release. The game is free to the public and doors will open one hour prior to tipoff.

This year’s Red-White game will be the second in three seasons to be played in the program’s former home arena of 36 years.

Arkansas played its final regular season game at Barnhill Arena on March 3, 1993.

The Razorbacks enter the 2021-22 season with lofty expectations following a 25-win campaign and a run to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. Arkansas is expected to be comfortably inside many preseason top-25 polls when they are released.

The Razorbacks are scheduled to open the season Tuesday, Nov. 9 against Mercer in Bud Walton Arena. No preseason exhibition games have been announced.
