The University of Arkansas held a ceremony at halftime of their game against Missouri on Saturday to raise a banner. It is only the third of its kind in Bud Walton Arena.
The first three bare the names of former players: Sidney Moncrief and Corliss Williams and former head coach Nolan Richardson. Now the fourth reads "Head Coach Eddie Sutton".
Bill Haisten of the Tulsa World wrote a great story linked below.
One of the coolest parts of the ceremony was a custom message from former president, Bill Clinton, a Razorback alum.

It's easy to forget that before he came to Stillwater and turned Oklahoma State's basketball program around, Eddie did the same thing for Arkansas.
Sutton has been named a finalist for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame (again). The inductees will be announced on April 4.
