Hogs to Alltel 

RAZORBACK BASKETBALL
2:05 p.m., Alltel Arena. $25.

It's become an annual tradition: Early in the season, the basketball Hogs come to North Little Rock to let us centrally located folks get a peek at the team. Even with last Saturday's disappointing loss to Oklahoma, you can bet fans will represent in droves. For one, early signs point to new coach John Pelphrey being fairly awesome. Did you catch him yelling maniacally, with crazy eyes, and chest-bumping players after a dunk led to an Oklahoma time-out on Saturday? Razorback fans appreciate that kind of fire, especially when it manifests itself into a fiery defensive plan and a lot of fast-break points. Also, we're poised to have a solid year. We've got loads of size in the frontcourt and a lot of seasoned vets. Few players in the SEC can keep up with Sonny Weems and Patrick Beverly, and I'm convinced that Michael Washington is soon to emerge as a game-changing badass. The Hogs take on Appalachian State, a team that, thanks to Michigan, won't be sneaking up on anyone, regardless of the sport, in the next several years. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and the Alltel box office.
