FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Univ. of Ark.) - Have you ever wondered what it would be like to roam the sidelines at Bud Walton Arena? Well, now is your chance, as two honorary coaches for the Red-White scrimmage held during Hog Wild Hoops on Sunday, Oct. 27 will be determined via Twitter at @RazorbackMBB.
To be eligible for the contest, fans must follow @RazorbackMBB on Twitter where, on #TriviaTuesday (Tuesday, Oct. 22), three questions will be released at 11 a.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Each question will have a number answer and the first two people to tweet back at @RazorbackMBB with the total sum of all three answers will be named the honorary coaches at the annual Red-White scrimmage.
Answers to the questions individually do not need to be sent to @RazorbackMBB, just the total sum of the answers of all three questions. Fans are only allowed one guess at the final number and can't win if they correctly answer on the second try.
"We want to engage our terrific fan base and I think this is a great way to do that," said head coach Mike Anderson (@MikeAndersonUA). "The Red-White scrimmage is a big deal and the first chance for fans to really see our guys in a competitive setting. I'm looking forward to Hog Wild Hoops and hearing some noise in Bud Walton Arena."
Doors will open at 2:30 p.m. with the scrimmage starting at 3:30 p.m. The Razorback women's basketball team will be introduced at halftime. The event will also include performances by the Arkansas Spirit Squads and the Hog Wild Band, a live DJ and contests and prizes for both Razorback students and fans. Following the Red-White game and after a short break, student-athletes and coaches will be available for autographs on the concourse.
Hog Wild Hoops will also serve as a collection point for food items to benefit local food pantries. Coach Mike Anderson, Coach Tom Collen and the Razorback Department of Athletics encourage fans to bring two non-perishable food items for donation and collection bins will be located at each entrance to the arena.
Ticket sales associates will be on hand to assist fans in selecting season tickets or mini-plans during the event while fans preview the #FASTEST40 action they will see this season. For additional ticket information, call 1-800-982-HOGS or visit www.ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
