FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Mike Anderson hopes to return to the NCAA tournament in his third season at Arkansas.

The Razorbacks open preseason practice under their third-year coach on Saturday, and they'll do so for the first two days in the school's student activity building.

Heavy overnight rain two weeks ago led to limited flooding inside Bud Walton Arena, leading to the sanding and repainting of the basketball court. The team has been conditioning in its former home, Barnhill Arena, and the activity building for the last two weeks - though the Bud Walton repairs are expected to be completed Monday.

Arkansas was 19-13 last season, 10-8 in the Southeastern Conference - a mark bolstered by an 18-1 record at home. It opens its season by hosting Southern Illinois-Edwardsville on Nov. 8
