Arkansas Razorbacks Picked 11th At SEC Basketball Media Days

New, comments

So there's work to do.

Beth Hall-USA TODAY Sports

The big news for Razorbacks fans, based on the way many of us have talked about this year's team, is that there are three other SEC teams Arkansas is supposed to be better than.

More good news is that two of those teams, Missouri and Tennessee, are teams the Razorbacks play twice this season.

Here are the full predictions:

Preseason Media Poll/Points

1. Kentucky/406

2. Vanderbilt/357

3. Texas A&M/344

4. LSU/333

5. Georgia/266

6. Florida/258

7. South Carolina/204

8. Mississippi State/203

9. Ole Miss/184

10. Auburn/168

11. Arkansas/118

12. Tennessee/86

13. Alabama/85

14. Missouri/33

As you can see by the point total, the Hogs are pretty solidly in 11th. Of course, it remains to be seen where they'll finish. One of the team's goals could be to avoid the dreaded Wednesday games of the SEC Tournament that are reserved for the bottom four finishers.

Arkansas didn't land anybody on the All-SEC teams. Here's how that shook out.
