Beginning with the students, a standing ovation inside the entire arena occurred with 11:53 left in the first half when Bielema walked down through the stands in anticipation of his team being introduced with the football team.
Bielema and several Razorbacks rolled out “The Golden Boot” - which is awarded to the winner of the Arkansas-LSU game, which the Razorbacks win 17-0 this season in Fayetteville.
It likely played well with the eight or so 2016 prospects that were on hand for the basketball game as well as 2015 signee Willie Sykes, who was on his official visit.

Hammonds (5-10, 190), Manvel, Texas, linebacker Jordan Carmouche (6-2, 220) and Trophy Club, Texas, Byron Nelson offensive lineman Kellen Deisch (6-7, 265).
Also on hand were the Springhill, La., North Webster duo of tailback Devin White (6-0, 240) and wide receiver Xavious Eason.
Arkansas was expecting a visit from Euless, Texas, Trinity defensive tackle Chris Daniels, but he did not make it and will now attend the Razorbacks’ Red-White game on April 25.
Bastrop, La., wideout Isaiah Graham also was unable to make the trip.

Sykes took the opportunity to tweet out what he looks like in his new Razorback jersey.
Jones - the Razorbacks’ lone 2016 commit so far - got a picture with current Razorback tight end Hunter Henry.
