Arkansas adds two more to nonconference schedule

The Arkansas basketball schedule for 2022-23 is nearing completion now.

WholeHogSports reported on Friday that coach Eric Musselman and the Razorbacks added two more to their nonconference slate. Arkansas will host Fordham on November 11 and North Carolina-Greensboro on December 6.

Last week, the Razorbacks added San Jose State to the slate. So far, five of Arkansas’ nonconference home games are known. That doesn’t include a December meeting against Oklahoma at neutral-site Tulsa, nor the Hogs’ playing in the Maui Invitational. Arkansas will also travel to Baylor as part of the Big/12 SEC Challenge.

Fordham is expected to be the tougher of the two teams reported Friday.

The Rams went 16-16 and 8-10 in the Atlantic 10 last year, hitting .500 for the first time since 2015-16. UNCG was 17-15 and 9-9, but in the slightly less strong Southern Conference.

You can take a look at every known game in Arkansas’ schedule below.
