FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas baseball coach Dave Van Horn will miss the first game of the Razorbacks’ series at Mississippi State to attend his daughter’s high school graduation.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1ZYo9nG ) Van Horn’s youngest daughter is scheduled to graduate from Shiloh Christian School in Springdale on Thursday - the same day as Arkansas’ series opener against the No. 4 Bulldogs in Starkville, Mississippi.

The team says Van Horn will rejoin the Razorbacks for games Friday and Saturday.

In 2012, Van Horn missed the opening game of a series at Tennessee to attend the graduation of his oldest daughter at Shiloh Christian.

The Razorbacks need at least one win at Mississippi State to stay in contention for the SEC Tournament next week. Arkansas hasn’t missed the tournament since 2008.
