Arkansas basketball 2018-2019

The time is now upon us.... Beat those Longhorns  ;D

-I am going to go optimistic and say we go 10-8 in the SEC and lose 3 non conference games


- I think that will be good enough to get us in the NCAA tournament as about a 10 seed, maybe 9 seed at best

-Tennessee, Kentucky, and Mississippi State should be a cut above the other 11

- I think Auburn falls back to earth and gets in the 2nd tier along with LSU who is set to rise

- After that we have as good as anyone to get the 6th & 7th spots which should get them in the NCAA tourney

I see from 6-10 depending on how these freshmen come along. I don't think Kentucky loses 6 league games. I wouldn't hold that Duke throttling against them to much. Duke is freaking loaded and it wouldn't be surprising to see them win it all. I do think that game really showed who the better coach was though.

Well....we are finally going to see what this class can do. This class and the 2019 class is what MA has been waiting on....

Hopefully it comes to fruition for him....

I think Kentucky will improve as time goes by and will not lose 6 conference games and I think Arkansas will be better than 10-8 in conference barring any major injuries. I say 12-6 in conference and we lose 1 noncon game.

To lose that way absolutely stings..... from the highlights though I can tell we have a real point guard and Isiah Joe is going to be the real deal for the future. We are going to be just fine the next few years if he can add pieces to this.

Free throws cost us big time. Absolutely should have fouled them before that 3 to send it in to OT

Spot on analysis.... Free throws can be the factor between finishing with a 3-6 or 6-3 in record in games decided by 5 or less points. I worry a bit that may be a trend with this team's front court.


I will say though that was the first time in years to see an Arkansas team not have defensive break downs all the time. Could that be cause Texas wasn't good offensively? We'll see as time goes by, but the defense is certainly better. I am not saying we are an NCAA tourney team, but its obvious we are not bottom 3 or 4 in the SEC with what we have. Now, its just that more vital to beat Indiana and Georgia Tech coming up. I wanted 2 out of 3 of those and we got to get the other two now.

I think the reason we didnt see as many breakdowns is we are more athletic now. Over the past couple years we have had guys that were challenged defensively. Also some that wanted to concentrate on scoring more.

I think we are for sure middle of the pack. Bench has to do some scoring. Think we got 4 points from the bench or something like that.

IMO we will do good to make the NIT and once these new guys get some seasoning we should be pretty good hopefully.

A little bit of a lull late in the first half and early in the 2nd half, but we finally pulled away from UC Davis 81-58.... Mason Jones has been the surprise for me the first two games.... Bailey had a career high too and seems to have improved his jumper. On to Indiana on Sunday. We got to have this after the Texas loss in OT

Indiana will be a tough one. They just punished Marquette. Will have to play solid to beat them

Anybody going tomorrow to the Indiana game? I work a 12 hour day on Sundays so I am quite sad I can't make this one as it was the game I wanted to go to more than any on the home slate.

Should be a great atmosphere and hopefully our freshmen and transfers in handle it.... I hope someone on here gets to see it in person tomorrow.
