Here’s a look at what’s happening in Northwest Arkansas including a big game for the Razorback Women’s Basketball Team and how you can bundle up and still experience some art at The Momentary.
It’s going down on Thursday, January 28 at Bud Walton Arena. The Razorback Women’s Basketball Team is hosting the University of Connecticut Huskies. Tip off is at 5:00 p.m. The Hogs were originally scheduled to play Vanderbilt, however, the Commodores canceled their season due to complications related to the pandemic. The Hogs and the Huskies have faced off one other time in a 100-64 road win for UCONN in 1998. Starting guard for the Huskies Christyn Williams is a Little Rock native. The game is sold out, however, you can cheer on the team from home via ESPN 2. You can watch Pigtrail’s interview with head Coach Mike Neighbors discussing the game on our website.

We want to give a shoutout to some students at the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith. Students were assigned a ‘call to action’ speech in which they had to propose an idea for improving the city. Fort Smith Mayor George McGill says he was impressed by their initiative and some of the ideas. These students will now serve as “Mayor’s Ambassadors,” tasked with continuing to explore ways to improve the city.
