Arkansas is adding two more to the non-conference schedule

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

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

Last week, the Razorbacks added San Jose State to the roster. So far, five of Arkansas’ non-conference home games are known. That doesn’t include a December meeting against Oklahoma in neutral Tulsa, nor the Hogs playing at 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 entered on Friday.

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