The Hogs sure had some good times in Pine Bluff.

Researching for this Sporting Life Arkansas piece on the Great Stadium Debate, I realized it’s been 20 years since the Razorback basketball team stopped playing in Little Rock and Pine Bluff.

Starting in 1977, Arkansas played at least one regular season game in Pine Bluff and one in Little Rock.

Below are the results of those games.

In this span, Arkansas was 28-2 in Pine Bluff.

In Little Rock, Arkansas was 33-4.
