The LSU Men's team returns to action on Saturday afternoon to face the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Maravich Assembly Center. The game, which tips-off at 4pm CT, will be televised by FSN. The Athletic Department announced today that the game is officially sold out.

LSU enters the game 16-4 overall (4-1 in the SEC). The Tigers have won their last four SEC games, including a 79-73 victory at Tennessee on Wednesday. Arkansas is 12-5 overall (1-4 in the SEC). The Hogs snapped a four-game losing streak on Thursday by beating Alabama, 89-80.

TD.com Hoops Correspondent "SouthOfSouth" provides an excellent scouting report of the Razorbacks in this thread on the Tiger Rant.

The game has been designated as the celebration of 100 years of LSU Basketball and over 125 former players are expected to be in attendance at the contest. LSU's All-Century Team will be announced at halftime.

In LSU Football news, two former LSU football players have enrolled at Texas Southern University. Wide receiver Ricky Dixon and offensive lineman Ernest McCoy enrolled at TSU this week. Both players will be eligible to participate with their new team immediately.

On the LSU Recruiting front, WR DeAngelo Benton is expected on campus this weekend for a recruiting visit. Benton signed with LSU back in 2007 and then again in 2008 but was not able to get academically eligible either time. He is considering LSU, Auburn and Ole Miss. He plans to announced his intentions on National Signing Day, which is February 4th.

This Arkansas team is very immature. I can see them getting very rattled if a big croud gets loud...

Another big game for the Tigers as they host Arkansas. LSU took a huge step in the right direction with a win over Tennessee, but a loss against the Hogs would bring them right back to square one. TJ does a good job of having his team ready to play, and I expect LSU to pull away in the last 10 minutes of the second half.
