After previously being suspended indefinitely on Saturday for conduct detrimental of the team, Arkansas has reinstated Alandise Harris and Michael Qualls to the team and the duo will play on Wednesday against Alabama, according to a tweet from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson had previously said on the SEC conference call on Monday morning that Harris and Qualls were still suspended and not practicing with the team, so things changed very quickly behind the scenes for the Razorbacks.
Qualls, a 6-foot-6 sophomore, is averaging 11.7 points this season and snapped out of a slump last Tuesday when Arkansas lost to Missouri at home, scoring 16 points.
Harris, a 6-foot-6 junior, is averaging 9.3 points on this season, but he has found himself in Mike Anderson’s doghouse of late, playing just 24 minutes the last three games.

“All of our student-athletes are held to a high standard and everyone is accountable for their actions,” head coach Mike Anderson said. “We are trying to build the ultimate team and everyone has to be on board to make that happen. Our expectations of our student-athletes is that they reflect positively on themselves and our program at all times and that they enter each day as a Razorback with a positive attitude that helps us continue to grow this program.”
The Razorbacks play at LSU on Saturday afternoon.
Qualls had been averaging 11.7 points this season and snapped out of a slump on Tuesday when Arkansas lost to Missouri at home, scoring 16 points. His name should sound familiar as it was his tip-slam at the buzzer that beat Kentucky.
Harris was averaging 9.3 points this season, but he had found himself in Mike Anderson’s doghouse of late, playing just 24 minutes the last three games.
