Preseason accolades and expectations continue rolling in for the Arkansas basketball team. The AP released their preseason top 25 polls on Friday and the Razorbacks clocked in with 21 points in the poll, good for 33rd in the nation.

Kentucky claimed the top spot, as expected. Other Arkansas opponents in the polls are Florida (7), Iowa State (14), and SMU (22). LSU received 8 points in the poll and Dayton picked up 6. Also of note, Memphis received 15 and it feels good to be slightly ahead of Memphis in these polls again.

Who knows. If Arkansas can upset SMU on the road early in the season the Razorbacks may find themselves ranked for the first time in years.
