FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Less than 900 tickets remain for the University of Arkansas men’s basketball game with the No. 20/19 Michigan Wolverines set for Saturday, Jan. 21. The game already marks the largest ticket pre-sale for a game this season.

Arkansas (13-5, 2-2 SEC) is looking to remain undefeated at home this season when it takes the court at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
