After winning a tough game against Tennessee in the conference opener, Arkansas couldn’t sneak one out at Mississippi State against the Bulldogs.
According to KenPom, Arkansas is about a point better than Auburn, but the home court advantage will wipe that away and the Hogs will likely be small underdogs in this matchup.
Both sides like to run. They average the first and second-most points in the SEC coming into this game and could play this one up into the 80s or 90s.
Jaylen Barford and Daryl Macon average about 36 points combined as Arkansas’ two leading scorers. The Razorbacks shooter over 50 percent from the field and 40 percent from three, but free throws are a problem. They barely make more than two out of every three freebies, which could be an Achilles heel in close games here in an SEC that’s more competitive than in year’s passed.
For the whole season, Auburn has been trying to clarify whether two of their best players, sophomores Austin Wiley and Danjel Purifoy, will ever become eligible.
The forward and center combo have sat out all 14 of Auburn’s games amid the FBI’s investigation into Chuck Person and rules he might have violated to recruit the two.
Their absence makes Auburn’s success this season all the more impressive. The Tigers have on 11 in a row, their longest in 18 years. Their win at #23 Tennessee on Tuesday was the program’s first road win against a ranked opponent in 11 years.
Wiley and Purifoy have been practicing with the team, but Bruce Pearl’s nine-man rotation has developed a synergy that may not like to be disrupted in the middle of the season. Auburn could use the size down low and Purifoy’s shooting ability, but for now this team has its sights on an NCAA Tournament berth.

Free Arkansas vs. Auburn NCAAB Prediction: I like Auburn at home.
Arkansas has some impressive wins this season, but Auburn is hot and looks like a team at least good enough to defend home court against the majority of the conference. It’s nice to see these two programs strong again, though.
