FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The University of Arkansas men's basketball team is the No. 7 seed in next week's Southeastern Conference Tournament and will play its first game on Thursday, March 14 at 6:30 p.m. at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.
Arkansas (19-12, 10-8 SEC) opens play with the Vanderbilt Commodores (14-16, 8-10 SEC), who is the No. 10 seed, with the winner moving on to take on the No. 2 seed Kentucky Wildcats (21-10, 12-6 SEC) on Friday, March 15.
The Razorbacks' No. 7 seed is its highest since the league went to its current one division format last season and the Razorbacks' 10 wins are the most by an Arkansas team since 2005-06 when the Razorbacks went 10-6 in league play.
Thursday's meeting will be the third between Arkansas and Vanderbilt this season as the two squads split their home-and-home series this year. The Razorbacks defeated the Commodores, 56-33, at home on Jan. 12, before dropping a 67-49 decision to Vanderbilt a month later in Nashville. This is the first meeting between Arkansas and Vanderbilt at the SEC Tournament since the 2008 SEC Tournament quarterfinals in which the Razorbacks won 81-75.
