Arkansas to Play Arizona St at Vegas Invite

Posted: Updated:

The University of Arkansas men's basketball team will play Arizona State on Friday, Nov. 23, in the first of two games at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., as a part of the 2012 Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational. The outcome of the Friday game will determine the Razorbacks next opponent, either Wisconsin or Creighton on Saturday, Nov. 24.

The meeting between Arkansas and Arizona State is just the second in the history of the programs with the first occurring 21 years ago when the two schools met on March 17, 1991, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in Atlanta, Ga. Arkansas would win the game 97-90 to advance to the Sweet 16 on the way to an Elite Eight appearance.

The Razorbacks are 1-1 all-time against potential Saturday opponent Creighton and have never played Wisconsin on the hardwood.

Arkansas is making just its second appearance in Las Vegas to play basketball with the first coming in December of 1989 when the 11th-ranked Razorbacks lost to hometown and 12th-ranked UNLV, 101-93.

Tickets for the Las Vegas Invitational may be purchased by calling the Razorback Ticket Office at 800-982-HOGS or online at ArkansasRazorbacks.com. Tickets may also be purchased at the box office of Orleans Arena at 702-284-7777 or on the web at www.orleansarena.com.
