Arkansas Basketball:
Relying on the Three

    The three-point arc was established nationwide in NCAA Division I men's college basketball in the 1986-87 season. The distance (other than occasional tournaments with experimental distances) was 19 feet and nine inches, until the 2008-09 season when it was extended to 20 feet, nine inches.

    This list shows how what percentage of field goal attempts Arkansas has taken that were three-pointers in each season of the three-point era, listed from highest percentage to lowest. Read it as: "In the 2001-02 season, 39.1% of the field goals Arkansas attempted were threes." The column on the right side shows how many threes Arkansas made per game in that season.
