Preseason tournaments in college basketball can provide a lot of entertainment around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
Assuming we’ll be able to have them this season amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Arkansas Razorbacks will be participating in an interesting one.
According to college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Arkansas will participate in the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City along with Cincinnati, Illinois and Kansas State:

There are some fun matchups that could come from that tournament, including an Illinois-Kansas State showdown, as K-State coach Bruce Weber used to coach the Illini.
There are still some important NBA Draft decisions and transfer options out there that need to be made before rosters are finalized for this coming season, so we’ll see what these teams look like when they come to Kansas City.
