WEATHERFORD, Okla. (AP) — The head basketball coach at Southwestern Oklahoma says an exhibition game at Arkansas in November will present a great opportunity for his team.

The Bulldogs will play the Razorbacks in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Nov. 5. The Hogs will be Southwestern Oklahoma's fourth Division I foe in three years. Last year, SWOSU lost at Tulsa and Oklahoma State. Two seasons ago, the Bulldogs lost at Colorado State.

Coach Bob Battisti says he looks forward to having his team play against a "great team and program" while also preparing for its season.

SWOSU was 16-13 last season. Arkansas was 27-9 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
