Merger with Rivercatz[edit]

The Arkansas Rivercatz were a team located in Pine Bluff. The team was originally called the Little Rock Rivercatz, and was scheduled to play in Little Rock at the Barton Coliseum. The team had a 34-game schedule with 16 home games on the slate to be played at the Pine Bluff Convention Center.[citation needed]

They compiled a 17-7 record and were ranked #15 in the ABA Power Rankings before the team's headquarters, the Royal Arkansas Hotel and Suites suddenly went out of business, forcing the team to merge operations with its brother franchise, the Arkansas Aeros.[citation needed]
