BETTING LINE Arkansas is favored by 11.5 points, according to Saracen Casino Resort

NOTABLE Arkansas’ average of 6.8 blocked shots per game ranks second nationally behind Eastern Kentucky’s 8.6. The Razorbacks had 15 blocks against Gardner-Webb, the most by an Eric Musselman-coached team. Sophomore forward Trevon Brazile leads Arkansas with 15 blocks and senior forwards Chandler Lawson and Makhi Mitchell have 13 and 11, respectively. … Arkansas senior guard Khalif Battle, averaging 15.8 points off the bench, is 3 points shy of 1,000 for his career. … Junior guard Tramon Mark, the Razorbacks’ leading scorer at 18.4 points per game, is questionable for tonight’s game as he continues to recover from injuries he suffered on Nov. 24 in the Razorbacks’ 87-72 loss to North Carolina in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament. He missed Arkansas’ 80-75 victory over Duke last Wednesday. … Furman, which lost at Princeton 70-69 on Saturday, is averaging 8.8 three-pointers and 8.1 steals per game. … Arkansas is averaging 29 free attempts per game to rank fifth nationally.
