• This will be the third meeting between Arkansas and the state of San Diego. Arkansas won the first two matches – both on neutral courts but played in Arkansas State. The December ’81 encounter took place at Pine Bluff, Ark. took place, and the December ’85 encounter took place in Little Rock.
• While the Razorbacks and Aztecs only met twice…both came in the 1980s, San Diego State is a well-known opponent of Razorback head coach Eric Musselman. Not only did Musselman grow up in San Diego and attend the University of San Diego, but San Diego State was Nevada’s main competitor while Musselman was the head coach of the Wolf Pack.
• Eric Musselman was only 3-7 against San Diego State in Nevada. To put those seven losses into perspective, Muss lost just 34 total games in Nevada, including 21 against opponents from Mountain West.
• Eric Musselman and Brian Dutcher not only draw each other…
• Musselman’s father (Bill) was the head coach at the University of Minnesota and Dutcher’s father (Jim) succeeded Musselman as head coach of the Gophers.
• Dutcher and Musselman rank fifth and sixth, respectively, among active NCAA Division I head coaches in terms of win rate (with at least five years of Division I wins). Dutcher has a .750 win rate over 6 years and Musselman has a .748 win rate over 8 years.
