Three reasons Arkansas will host a Regional and two reasons it won't

SMG Logo By E. Wayne of SMG | Slide 2 of 5: Arkansas finished the year just 4-6 in its last 10 games. Coach Dave Van Horn said he was concerned after the Diamond Hogs dropped two of three in the season finale series at Alabama. The Razorbacks have made at least the third round of the SEC Tournament every year they've gone since 2013. Van Horn's teams don't usually go to Hoover and lay an egg. A third-round appearance this year would likely put them on a bubble for one of the host seeds. A semifinal appearance would almost certainly be enough to host.
