We won the challenge..

With Aub, LSU, MS ST, and MO sitting on the bench. Like I’ve been saying the SEC is no joke anymore, any team can beat you anywhere.

Barford was off tonight, he wasn’t going to the hoop, settling for the J. He will get it going again though, just one game, he’s a fantastic player.

The defense was great down the stretch, they recognized the shooter, and closed the gap, really shut them down completely the last 7:00 mins.

Somehow got to get to 10-11 SEC wins to even have a chance at one of the top 4 spots in the SEC tourney. Without one of those spots, you aint winning that tournament.

We should get to 11! I doubt 11 wins will get you a top 4 seed in the SEC tournament. We have 10 conference games left. 7-3 gets the hogs to 11 conference wins. I think they need to go
8-2 or 9-1 to get a top 4 seed. Highly unlikely to go 9-1. 7-3 or 8-2 is more attainable with the hogs schedule.

Nope, there will be 3,4,5, or 6 teams tied at 10 or so wins battling it out for those 3rd and 4th spots. There are no easy games this yr, If Arkansas can get 7 more SEC wins, that will be fantastic, but truthfully, even our home schedule is tough, KY came alive yesterday in WV, Auburn is just playing lights out, SC is a physical, tough team, especially on the glass, Vandy always has a chance with good shooters. This is the best Alabama team in yrs, they have a top 10 NBA pick obviously. And our remaining road games are regional rivals, except for arguably Alabama. Realistically we could go anywhere from 3-7 to 7-3.

The defense is playing well, and when we’re ALL shooting well, we should have a chance against anyone. We have a lazy team offensively, if you have to settle for a low percentage shot, you lose more often than not! Gotta play hard on both sides of the floor. And guys coming in off the bench have to play with more energy.
