I just bothers me to keep seeing SC listed as a higher seed in the
predicted brackets out there.
We beat them head to head. We finished 3rd in the SEC, they
finished 4th. We have more wins (+3) and fewer losses (-2).
We advanced to the final in the SEC while they lost in quarter
Now for some other numbers: AR / SC
Conference Record 12-5 / 12-5 Arkansas by tie breaker
Overall Record 25-8 / 22-10 Advantage Arkansas
Basketball Power Index 48 / 44 Advantage SC
Strength of Schedule 65 / 57 Advantage SC
Strength of Record* 31 / 38 Advantage Arkansas
RPI 26 / 30 Advantage Arkansas
*Strength of Record (SOR) is a measure of team accomplishment based on how difficult a team’s W-L record is to achieve.
I think we should be rated better than SC, granted I have hog
blinders on, but does the bad loss to Missouri on the road really
trump everything else?
