Arkansas is one of the teams from the SEC ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has in the NCAA Tournament along with three others.
Joe Lunardi has not three but four SEC teams in the big dance including a comeback kid Arkansas Razorbacks team. The ESPN bracketologist has four teams from the league in with two sitting on the bubble.
Not too terribly long ago, Arkansas was barely on the bubble. Back to back losses against Missouri and Vanderbilt had the Hogs in a shaky position. Now, the March Madness fortune teller has the Razorbacks at a 9 seed.
He has bounced the Hogs back and forth from 9 to 10 and back to 9 in his past few submissions for his bracket. As the Razorbacks are on solid ground, the rest of the league is fighting for a bid as well.
Outside of Arkansas, Lunardi has three other teams in from the SEC. It’s no shocker he has Kentucky as the highest seed from the south. Currently, he has the Wildcats at a 2 seed.
Under Kentucky is a really good Florida team. At the moment, the Gators are right under Kentucky at a 3 seed. Florida is at 23-6 for the season and 13-3 in the SEC. Lastly from the SEC is South Carolina at a 9 seed. It will be a fight between Arkansas and South Carolina to head into the conference tournament at third place.
According to Lunardi, two more SEC teams are on the bubble. He has Vanderbilt in his first four out group and Tennessee in his next four out. Many are predicting that the SEC will get four in, one of which should be Arkansas. Woo pig.
