Just a week ago it seemed that Razorback basketball could not get any worse. The Hogs were coming off their worst SEC lost in history when Kentucky thrashed them 101-70 and were sitting at 1-3 in conference play. But what a difference a week can make. Since the embarrassing loss to Kentucky the Razorbacks have bounced back to beat Mississippi State and No. 18 Ole Miss in consecutive games. Both teams sat at the top of the SEC West at the time the Hogs knocked them off.
