Whew!

Well, the basketball season-opener proved every bit as nerve-wracking as the football season-opener.

Southeastern Louisiana isn't the biggest name, but I think, considering it was their first time playing together in a game that counts, that that was a pretty nice victory for the Hogs. A gutsy comeback in the final minute of regulation. A great effort by Michael Washington and very solid debuts by Courtney Fortson and Rotnei Clarke. I'll take it.

Free throws - the bane of so many Razorback teams of the recent past - were a problem again tonight as well, particularly for Fortson and Washington. Hopefully, that will change.

What are your thoughts?

(P.S. - We hear they're really happy in Lexington tonight.)
