Ark. coach announces signing of point guard

(AP) - Arkansas men's basketball coach Mike Anderson has announced that Seminole State College point guard Jabril Durham has signed a letter of intent to join the program for the upcoming season.

The university said Wednesday that Durham, a native of Dallas, will have two years of eligibility with the Razorbacks.

Over two years -with stops at Seminole State and Lubbock Christian- Durham tallied 957 points, 332 rebounds, 341 assists and 116 steals over 59 games.

He also posted team-bests of 6.7 assists, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals and led Seminole State in nearly every statistical category.

Anderson says Durham will fill a need in the backcourt with his ability to create scoring opportunities for teammates and score from the point guard position.


Arkansas' Derby making most of move to tight end

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - AJ Derby wanted to give the quarterback position every chance he could.

However, with his playing time in jeopardy as he approached his final season of college football, the Arkansas senior heeded the advice of coach Bret Bielema and switched to tight end prior to the start of spring practice.

It's a move that has paid immediate dividends for both Arkansas and its former Iowa transfer, who has been the surprise of the spring for the recovering Razorbacks.

Derby was 19-of-36 passing for 178 yards as Brandon Allen's backup last season for the Razorbacks, who went winless in the Southeastern Conference and lost their final nine games on the way to a 3-9 record.
