Who is Arkansas?

G – No. 21 Patrick Beverley (6-1, 180)\n12.0 pts. 6.7 reb. 2.4 ast.\nArguably the most talented player on the Arkansas squad, Beverley earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors last season. His scoring numbers dipped from 13.9 ppg to 12.0 ppg, but Beverley is the Razorbacks leading rebounder at 6.7 rbg. The guard was a former recruiting target of IU.

F – No. 13 Sonny Weems (6-6, 203)\n14.3 pts. 4.6 reb. 2.7 ast. \nWeems has had the best season of any Razorback, which earned the senior First-Team All-SEC honors. Weems was one of the most sought-after junior college transfers before the 2006-2007 season. The senior has a good motor and could cause matchup problems for the Hoosiers.

F/C – No. 5 Darian Townes (6-10, 243)\n11.9 pts 5.2 reb. 0.9 ast\nOne of four senior starters for the Razorbacks, Townes is 20th on the all-time scoring list and 10th on the all-time rebounding list for Arkansas. He is third on the team in scoring with 11.9 ppg. At 6-foot-10, Townes could give the small Hoosier frontline trouble.

F – No. 33 Vincent Hunter (6-10, 229)\n2.9 pts. 1.9 reb. 0.2 ast.\nEdwards has come off the bench and has played as a starter for Arkansas this season. The senior has started a career-high six straight games, with his team going 4-2 in that span.

G – No. 0 Gary Ervin (6-foot-0, 182 lbs)\n9.6 pts. 2.6 reb. 3.7 ast.\nA transfer from Mississippi State, Ervin runs the point for the Razorbacks. Ervin is quick with the ball and creates opportunities for his teammates – the guard is 7th in the SEC conference with a 1.71 assist to turnover ratio. Ervin showed in the SEC tournament that he can be a scoring threat, with 14 points in the second half in a win against Vanderbilt.
