FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Marshawn Powell is back on the court at Arkansas and ready to see action for the first time since a knee injury that cost him most of last season.
Powell joined the rest of his teammates at practice last week. The early work was a precursor to a 10-day trip to Italy, beginning Friday, for the Razorbacks, who will play four games against European competition.
The 6-foot-7 Powell was a preseason second-team All-Southeastern Conference last season as a sophomore after averaging 14.9 points as a freshman. He averaged 19.5 points in Arkansas' first two games last season but tore the ACL in his right knee in practice and missed the rest of the season.
The Razorbacks were 18-14 last season, losing nine of their final 12.
