No. 9 seed Arkansas (17-14, 8-10) vs. No. 8 seed Florida (17-14, 9-9)
WINNING WHEN: Arkansas is a perfect 6-0 when the team blocks at least seven opposing shots. The Razorbacks are 11-14 this season when they block fewer than seven shots.
DID YOU KNOW? Florida has committed a turnover on just 17.8 percent of its possessions this season, which is the second-lowest rate among all SEC teams. The Gators have turned the ball over only 11.6 times per game this season.
BUBBLE REPORT: The SEC sent a league-record eight teams to the NCAA Tournament a year ago and hopes to match that this season. First, the SEC needs Florida (17-14, 9-9) to beat Arkansas (17-14, 8-10) on Thursday after the Gators lost their last three games. Alabama’s hopes also have thinned after a three-game skid.
“If we weren’t able to have success, I’d feel very uneasy for a lot of reasons, probably the biggest being we’re coming off a loss,” Florida coach Mike White said. “I’m not going to worry about bracketology.”
