Hogs look to bolster NCAA case with road win at LSU

Arkansas put itself on the NCAA tournament radar with its win over No. 25 Vanderbilt.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas put itself on the NCAA tournament radar with its win over No. 25 Vanderbilt.

It was the Razorbacks' third win over a ranked opponent this season, improving them to 16-0 in Bud Walton Arena.

Coach Mike Anderson knows for the Razorbacks (16-5, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) to be seriously considered for the tournament, they must first show they can win on the road — where they are winless this season.

Arkansas played well until late in a loss at Alabama last week, and its next road test comes Saturday at LSU (12-9, 2-5). The Tigers lost to the Razorbacks 69-60 on Jan. 14, but they played that game without freshman forward Johnny O'Bryant, who had 12 points and nine rebounds against Kentucky last week.
