25 Arkansas (12-5, 1-4) will hit the road for the fourth time since starting conference play with a trip to Columbia, Missouri, on Saturday to take on the Missouri Tigers (13-4, 2-3) for the second time this month.

The Razorbacks will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak, all of which they lost by double digits. Missouri itself is on a two-game losing streak, both defeats coming on the way at Texas A&M and Florida.

With their famous roster and back-to-back Elite Eight appearances, head coach Eric Musselman and the Hogs seem to have a target on their backs every week.

“We’ve got six freshmen who obviously haven’t tried college basketball, and some other guys who might not have played in that kind of atmosphere,” Musselman said. “Then you add the fact that the team has had success the last couple of years, and then you add the fact that every day this team has been together they’ve been ranked. So there’s a little excitement when Arkansas is playing on the road now.”

The Hogs and Tigers met on January 4 inside Bud Walton Arena, and Arkansas erased a 17-point halftime deficit to emerge victorious, 74-68. Wednesday’s game presents a whole new challenge for two teams that have each struggled lately.

“How the match goes, we don’t know,” Musselman said. “Every game has its own characteristics and we have a plan A, a plan B, and a plan C for how things are going, but you have to read the game and make adjustments as they happen.”

distance A crushing loss at Vanderbilt on SaturdayMusselman said his team trained hard and focused on Monday. Even though his team is full of talent, he’s still trying to piece things together.

“You just have to try to coach your team, every possession, in practice, every minute,” Musselman said. “You have to keep juggling. I mean, you can’t keep doing the same thing as a player or as a coach. I think that’s been something that’s been very successful in the past which is to keep trying to figure out who we are.”

The Tigers boast a 10-1 home record this season, while the Hogs are 0-3 on the road, all three losses coming in SEC playoffs.
