How to watch Alabama-Arkansas basketball game
No. 2 Alabama (24-4, 14-1 SEC) will be back inside the confines of Coleman Coliseum on Saturday afternoon to take on the surging Arkansas Razorbacks (19-9, 8-7 SEC).
This is the second matchup of the season between the SEC rivals with the Nate Oats and the Crimson Tide taking care of the Hogs in Fayetteville, 84-69 back in early January.
The Razorbacks have recently seen star freshman Nick Smith Jr. return to the hardwood, which has helped the Hogs slowly reach their potential.
Coleman Coliseum is sure to be electric this afternoon for the final weekend contest at home for the 2022-23 season.
Here is how you can catch all the action between the Crimson Tide and Razorbacks.

This should probably just be the selection each and every game. Brandon Miller is coming off a career-high 41-points against South Carolina and while I don’t expect a duplicate performance, Miller will likely lead the Tide again on Saturday.
Arkansas player to watch: Nick Smith Jr.

Nick Smith Jr. has missed the majority of the season with an injury but is finally back in the lineup and when healthy, is one of the most talented players in the country. Smith dropped 26 points in the Razorbacks’ last game on Tuesday night.

This matchup has a lot of SEC basketball fans excited, myself included. Alabama is looking to hold onto its grip on the SEC regular season title, while the Razorbacks are talented enough to provide an upset. In the end, I believe the Tide are too deep and have been too good at home this season.
