AR drew a hard starting schedule witch I consider it an advantage. I recall how our free throw shooting had dropped last year at the end of the season; because of psychological and physical deterioration. Winning a tight game like this on the road at the line would have been more difficult. Regardless what happens in Kentucky, at the worst AR will split its road games. The loss to FL, perhaps the second best team in SEC is only one loss. AR has equal chance with the rest until it meets FL again on the road. This win was meaningful from the standpoint of getting AR out of the ditch and moving towards its goal. A 0-3 record would have had a deleterious effect on their psyche.
