Despite the Arkansas Razorbacks (19-12, 8-10) losing three straight to close out their regular season, including an 88-79 loss to No. 23 Kentucky on Saturday, head coach Eric Musselman remained confident in his team's ability to make a run entering postseason play. Arkansas will enter the SEC Tournament as the 10-seed and it will take on 7-seed Auburn on Thursday at 6 p.m. CT inside Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Arena. A trio of defeats against Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky (all Quadrant 1 teams) were not exactly how the team drew it up, and freshman guard Nick Smith Jr. said it definitely hurt the Hogs' confidence.
