Do you believe in fairy tales? In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the 1997-98 Arkansas women’s basketball team, Hogs+ is releasing a new documentary that will tell the complete story of the Razorbacks’ improbable journey to the Final Four as a 9-seed – still the lowest seed to ever reach the final weekend of the NCAA Tournament.

The documentary covers the highs and lows of the 1997-98 season that set the stage for the team’s remarkable run in March and features interviews with the key members of the team, including Christy Smith and Wendi Willits plus head coach Gary Blair, assistant coaches Amber Shirey and Vic Schaefer and more.

Tune in THIS THURSDAY AT 8PM CT to stream it for free on HogsPlus.com.


🔼 Extreme Home Defense. No. 6 Arkansas baseball hasn't lost on its home field in a while, and the polls reflect that. The Razorbacks still reside inside the top seven for every major college baseball poll as April is just days away.

The Diamond Hogs face Omaha tonight in Baum-Walker Stadium to set the record for the longest home winning streak under Dave Van Horn. First pitch against the Mavericks is at 6pm.

🔼 In A Pinch. How do you make the most of your opportunity? Take a look at Reese Robinett. The freshman for Arkansas baseball had six at-bats last week and had three hits.

Reese first knocked one out of Baum-Walker against Southeast Missouri State before hitting the first pinch-hit homer for Arkansas in two years against No. 1 LSU on Friday night.

🔼 No Days Off. Whether it’s the middle of winter or the middle of the season, baseball is always something Dave Van Horn is thinking about. It helps Van Horn be prepared for anything, from a trip to Omaha last season, to the adversity of dealing with injuries to the pitching staff this year.

One thing Van Horn hasn’t had to worry about? His assistant coaches, Nate Thompson and Matt Hobbs. Armed with an exceptional staff and a talented roster, Van Horn is ready to lead the Diamond Hogs to another standout season

🔼 Me vs. The World. The Today's a big day for Arkansas men's basketball signee Baye Fall. The future Razorback will be playing in the 2023 McDonald’s All-American game, and was selected yesterday to play in the 2023 Nike Hoop Summit for the World Select team alongside the top American high school seniors and the world's best international players 19-and-younger. The game is scheduled for Saturday, April 8 in Portland, Oregon.


Dugout check. Now 24 games into baseball season, Q and Z are taking stock of where things stand for the Arkansas baseball team as we near the halfway point of the season. And we’ve got a special first look at a new documentary celebrating the women’s basketball team’s 1998 run to the Final Four.
