STILLWATER, Okla. - Arkansas plans to start freshman Keaton McKinney Saturday night, Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said Friday.
McKinney has been battling a hip injury, but "as of right now," Van Horn said he would start against the winner of Friday night's between Oklahoma State and St. John's.
McKinney had been considered questionable for the regional after a short outing at last week's SEC Tournament. Van Horn said McKinney and sophomore Dominic Taccolini were "50-50" entering this weekend's regional.
"I think McKinney's in better shape and I don't think Taccolini is in very good shape," Van Horn said after the Razorbacks' 8-6 win over Oral Roberts on Friday.
