Arkansas Resume Update 2-26-18

TUSCALOOSA, Ala — The Hogs escaped Tuscaloosa with a win Saturday night against the Crimson Tide. How does this win impact their postseason potential?

Thanks to a 76-73 win against Alabama, Arkansas (20-9, 9-7 SEC) has now reached the 20-win mark for the fourth time in the last five years. They currently sit at fourth in the SEC.

The analysts have been saying all year that eight teams from the SEC will likely make the field of 68 in the 2018 edition of the NCAA Tournament. Will the Hogs occupy one of those spots?

First, we will take a look at how the Hogs stack up to other teams in the SEC in terms of RPI, strength of schedule and current bracketology projections.

Arkansas has a few opportunities left to improve their resume. They have games against Auburn at Bud Walton Arena and Missouri on the road to close out the regular season and are guaranteed at least one game in the SEC Tournament.

Date Opponent RPI Previous (This Season)
February 27, 2018 (12) Auburn 7 L 77-88 (Away)
March 3, 2018 at Missouri 43 W 65-63 (Home)
March 7-11, 2018 SEC Tournament
March 15-April 2 NCAA Tournament

Arkansas looks to be in good shape. They have several quality wins and lack any inexplicable losses. Come Selection Sunday, Hog fans should be more worried about where they will be seeded than whether or not they will make the field.

Mark my words, write it down, memorize it and recite it in the mirror: The Hogs are doing dancing, baby.
