Shooting shirts

This season, we decided to do something a little different with the gear our Razorback players wear to warm up in. You may have noticed some different shirts that the guys have been wearing to shoot in before certain games. 

We created some shirt designs for our players to wear before particular games that either commemorate a certain holiday or emphasize a different theme that we’ve come up with for an individual game. For our game against North Texas which was the day after Veteran’s Day, our players and staff donned red, white and blue Razorbacks shirts to honor those who have served our country.

We also wore these shirts prior to our first road game at Georgia Tech to remind our team that even though we were playing on the road, that we still “give our all for Arkansas” no matter who’s court we’re playing on. (We will also wear them tonight prior to playing Austin Peay)

SS2

 

Please continue to stay tuned as we will continue to wear some different themed shirts throughout the rest of the season! Go Hogs!!

LET'S GO DEVO

Today we are thrilled to announce the signing of Davonte “Devo” Davis.  Devo is a 6’4’’ home-grown guard from Jacksonville, AR.

 

He is ranked 97th in the country by 247 Sports, ranked 129th in the country by Rivals, and 80th in the country by ESPN. Each of them have listed him as a 4 star recruit.

 

He averaged 12 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 2.4 APG on the super competitive EYBL Circuit. He represented his team with great composure and poise delivering these stats among his other star-studded teammates. Even more importantly, his team competed and won at the highest level all session. 

 

He is an elite floor general and natural leader. A truly versatile guard that can play both guard positions. Devo’s tremendous toughness and versatility will be an awesome addition to our already talented Arkansas Razorbacks squad.

 

We love Devo’s ability to be both a playmaker and a scorer at all three levels. He is an outstanding free throw attempt player and does a great job finishing through contact. From a defensive perspective, Devo will add plenty of length and athleticism that will lead to being able to guard multiple positions.

Our staff and our amazing fans are beyond excited for Devo to join the family, GO HOGS!

Earl Boykins

Earl Boykins, a 13-year NBA veteran, is in his first season as Arkansas men’s basketball Director of Student-Athlete Development.

Boykins played for head coach Eric Musselman with the Golden State Warriors during the 2002-03 season and while Musselman was an assistant coach for the Orlando Magic.

Since his retirement from the NBA, Boykins was the head coach at Douglas County (Colo.) High School as well as running the Boykins Basketball Academy in Denver. In addition, he founded non-profit “Boykins Kids” and has been a lecturer on leadership.

Boykins, the second-shortest player in the NBA history at 5-5, dished out 2,092 assists and scored 5,791 points over his career. In fact, he is the shortest player in NBA history to score at least 30 points in a game when he poured in 32 in a 117-109 Denver Nuggets’ win over Detroit on Nov. 11, 2004.

An undrafted free agent out of college, Boykins played for New Jersey Nets (1999), Cleveland Cavaliers (1999 and 2000) Orlando Magic (1999), Los Angeles Clippers (2000-02), Golden State Warriors (2002-03), Denver Nuggets (2003-06, 2007), Toronto Raptors (2006-07), Milwaukee Bucks (2007; 2010-11), Charlotte Bobcats (2007-08), Washington Wizards (2009-10) and Houston Rockets (2012).

In the middle of his NBA career, Boykins played one season (2008-09) in Italy and was the highest-paid player in the Italian League. Boykins lived up to the hype as he led Virtus Bologna to the 2009 EuroChallenge Cup Championship.

Boykins is arguably the best player to ever come out of Eastern Michigan University. His number (#11) was retired by EMU in 2011 and he is a member of the school’s E-Club Hall of Fame (Class of 2013).

As a senior with the Eagles, Boykins was named All-American honorable mention and he was recipient of the 1998 Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award, which is awarded to the nation’s best collegiate player under six feet tall. The previous season, Boykins led Team USA to the 1997 World University Games gold medal and was subsequently tabbed the USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year.

Boykins helped the Eagles win two MAC Tournament championships and they made four straight MAC Tournament championship game appearances. In both 1996 and 1998, EMU advanced to the NCAA Tournament. In 1996, the Eagles pulled off a monumental upset, defeating Duke (75-60), behind 23 points, five assists and four steals from Boykins.

He also earned All-MAC first team honors in 1997 and 1998, and, during his senior campaign, he was the second-leading scorer in the entire country at 26.8 points per game.

Boykins, who attended Cleveland Central Catholic HS, was named the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s high school Player of the Decade for the 1990’s among players from the newspaper’s area of Northeast Ohio.

Boykins is a 1998 graduate of Eastern Michigan with a degree in communications.
