FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Former President Bill Clinton is among those who will take part in a celebration of Arkansas’ Final Four teams.

The school says Clinton, an Arkansas native and avid supporter of the Razorbacks during their run to the 1994 national championship, will be presented with a framed No. 42 jersey on Saturday against LSU. Clinton was the 42nd president and watched the Razorbacks defeat Duke for the title in 1994.

Former coach Nolan Richardson as well as players Corliss Williamson, Scotty Thurman, Todd Day, U.S. Reed and Oliver Miller are also among those who will be honored at halftime of the game against the Tigers.

Arkansas has reached the Final Four six times, including playing in the national championship game in both 1994 and 1995.
