TUESDAY UPDATE: After serving one-game suspensions in a double-digit defeat at LSU, Michael Qualls and Alandise Harry have been reinstated and will play Wednesday night vs. Alabama at Bud Walton Arena.
Arkansas has suspended Michael Qualls and Alandise Harris indefinitely, the school announced early Saturday afternoon.
Qualls averages 11.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, while Harris averages 9.1 points and 3.6 boards per contest. The Hogs, who are 2-5 in the SEC, are most likely going to miss the NCAA Tournament for the third straight time to start Mike Anderson’s tenure.
When Nolan Richardson barked that if the school wanted to fire him in 2002, they could do so if they “paid him his money.” Well, they did and it’s the school that’s paid for it.
This is the 12th post-Nolan season and one of the most raucous arenas in college hoops (Bud Walton) has basically been silent for over a decade. Since Nolan’s dismissal, Arky has been to just three NCAA Tourneys and has ONE NCAA Tourney win.
LSU hosts Arkansas today and the line is now up to -6.5 from 5 or 5.5 early this morning. The Razorbacks are winless both straight up and against the spread in their three true road assignments this year.
