FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas head basketball coach Eric Musselman issued a statement on Sunday concerning an incident that happened following the 78-74 overtime win over San Diego State Wednesday night in the Maui Jim Maui Invitational.

“We recently played a highly contested and emotional game against an exceptional San Diego State team. Shortly after the game, I and some members of our program responded with negative dialogue to a few San Diego State fans. I want to take this opportunity to apologize to the San Diego State community and especially to head coach Brian Dutcher, his staff, their excellent team, and their enthusiastic fans for this post-game interaction. We highly value, appreciate and respect our participation in the 2022 Maui Classic.”

Musselman and the Razorbacks will be at home Monday night to host a 6-1 Troy team. The Trojans won 79-72 at Tallahassee on Nov. 14 against Florida State.
