Each week Jim Harris appears on 103.7 The Buzz FM at 11 a.m. during the The Zone with Justin Acri and Pat Bradley. This week Jim Harris discusses the Razorback basketball team’s conference road win and how the team could be 6-0 to start the SEC schedule. Jim also shares his thoughts on the national championship game between Ohio State and Oregon.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Fresh off Arkansas’ first SEC win of the season against Georgia, sophomores Moses Kingsley and Bobby Portis will join Mike Anderson on Mike’d Up, the weekly radio show dedicated to the University of Arkansas Razorback basketball, at Sassy’s Red House in Fayetteville on Thursday at 7 p.m.

The one-hour Mike’d Up program gives fans an opportunity to interact with Razorback coaches and players while also getting to learn more about the personalities that they witness on the court. Hosted by the voice of the Razorbacks Chuck Barrett, the program features interviews with coach Anderson and Arkansas student-athletes, coaches and staff members. Fans in attendance will also have an opportunity to ask the head Razorback their own questions. Fans can also send in a question to coach Anderson on the day of each show via Twitter to @RazorbackMBB and by using the hashtag #MikedUp.

Starting in the last two consecutive games, the first in his collegiate career, Kingsley is tied for the most blocks on the team with 14. The Abuja, Nigeria native has grabbed 4+ offensive rebounds three times this season and is second on the team with 25. Portis, who played his fifth 20-point game of the season against Georgia on Tuesday, is the only player in the SEC in the top 5 in scoring, rebounding and field goal percentage. The Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 and candidate for the Oscar Robertson Trophy is averaging a team-high 17.1 points and 7.6 rebounds per game.

The Razorbacks (12-2,1-0 SEC) will host their first conference game of the season at Bud Walton Arena against Vanderbilt (11-3,1-0 SEC) on Saturday at 3:32 p.m. CT. Vanderbilt most recently defeated Auburn 64-52 in its SEC opener on Tuesday. Arkansas leads the series 19-11 and last beat Vanderbilt 77-75 in Nashville, Tennessee in Feb. 2014.

Mike’d Up can be heard across the Razorback Sports Network from IMG College across the state.
