Ending the year with a 26-10 overall record, the Razorbacks put a lid on one of the best seasons in school history, finishing tied for the seventh-most wins in the history of the program. Arkansas ended the year winning nine of its final 12 games, including a trip to the SEC Championship game and the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament.

The Razorbacks capped the season with their best road/neutral site record (11-7) in 22 years and the best since going 18-6 in 1994-95. Arkansas also recorded the second-best free throw percentage in school history at 76.1 percent, the highest mark in 55 seasons. The Razorbacks tallied 12 wins in SEC play for the fifth time in program history and just the second time in the last 22 years.

The three seniors of Moses Kingsley, Dusty Hannahs and Manuale Watkins will leave a lasting legacy on the program that will span well beyond the last four seasons.

Kingsley ended his career ranked No. 25 on the team’s all-time scoring list with 1,200 career points, and Hannahs became the fifth player in program history to score 1,000 points in two seasons. Watkins enters the record books with the fourth-best assist/turnover ratio as a Razorback, dishing out 172 assists and committing just 74 turnovers in 1960 minutes of action.
