At Arkansas, Anderson is a part of the history and tradition that is Razorback basketball. Anderson was a volunteer assistant, assistant coach, recruiting coordinator and assistant head coach over 17 seasons with the Arkansas basketball program under Richardson. During that run, the Razorbacks made 15 postseason appearances, five Sweet 16's, four Elite Eights, three Final Fours, finished as national runner-up in 1995 and won the 1994 National Championship.

Anderson has been a part of perhaps the greatest run of basketball in Arkansas history as it matched many of the biggest names in the sport in total wins, NCAA Tournament appearances and Final Fours. The Razorbacks won five outright conference championships during his 17 years on the bench, an SEC Western Division title and Arkansas' only SEC Tournament championship.
