FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Thousands of Arkansas fans have gotten a glimpse of a new film about former coach Nolan Richardson and the men's basketball team.

About 7,000 joined Richardson, 19 former players and coaches and the present team for the world premiere of ESPN's "40 Minutes of Hell" at Bud Walton Arena on Saturday.

The 48-minute film is the third installment of the SEC Storied series, and was shown for the first time following Arkansas' game against South Carolina. It focuses on the ups and downs of Richardson's 17 years with the Razorbacks, which won 389 games, made three Final Four appearances and won the 1994 NCAA Championship.

Richardson thanked the audience for their support and those who made the film, which he said made him and his family very proud.
