basketball razorbacks

well, earlier on in the pre-conference schedule I made the prediction that this team would finish at 12 – 4 and no worse than 10 – 6 in conference play…

after stumbling out of the gate with a road loss to Moo State (2 point loss) and an abysmal showing at home against LSU (5 point loss), they have now won 2 of the last 3 and stand at 2 – 3 in the SEC…

they will host Ole Mrs this Wednesday night at Bud Walton….
although Ole Mrs is 3 – 1 in the SEC, I don't think that is really indicative of this team's ability….
i suspect that at home, the Hawgs will wear out the smaller and less deep Rebel team…
this will even the record at 3 – 3 with 10 games remaining…
let's look at those remaining 10 games and give a synopsis of how I think each will go down….

  • 1/29 – @ kentucky: this isn't your grandfather's kentucky and we always play well in rupp…Hawgs 69 Mildcats 60 WildCats 78 No Heart 76
  • 2/4 – South Carolina: back home, week off, hawgs win here….Hawgs 75 Cocks 63 Hawgs 73 Cocks 59
  • 2/8 – @ LSU: tigers are most talented team in SECW; tough at home….Tigers 75 Hawgs 71 (in OT) Tigger 78 Hawgs 77
  • 2/11 – Auburn: weakest team in SEC; Hawgs won by 16 a their place….Hawgs 82 Tigers 60 Hawgs 84 War Robin 64
  • 2/15 – @ Ole Mrs: Hawgs have gained confidence on SEC road; wear down Rebels…..Hawgs 72 Rebels 62
  • 2/18 – Florida: most talented team in SEC; tough tough game…..Gators 69 Hawgs 65
  • 2/21 – Bama: little revenge for Hawgs here as they should have won @ Bama earlier…..Hawgs 74 Tide 60
  • 2/25 – @ Tennessee: VERY dangerous outside shooting team; Vols off today though……Hawgs 72 Vols 62
  • 3/1 – Moo State: revenge factor again; Hawgs come to play today….Hawgs 85 Dogs 55
  • 3/4 – @ Georgia: regular season finale; Hawgs win SECW with win today…..Hawgs 74 Dawgs 70

final SEC record 11 – 5….
SECW winners….

take it or leave it, your choice and only time will tell…..
