Moyes: Referee did not consider abandonment despite pitch invasions

Arkansas is in the SEC Tournament semifinals for the 14th time, and second year in a row, since joining the conference for the 1991-1992 season.

While being more rested obviously should be in Arkansas' favor tonight, there is something to be said for establishing tournament momentum before your opponent.

The Gamecocks also suffered 19 turnovers to the Razorbacks' 14, but SC managed to control the tempo of the ballgame, making it hard on the Hogs in half-court situations.

"We fit the criteria, but it's not my decision", SC coach Frank Martin said. Schofield had 13 points and eight rebounds. "Florida doesn't have a lot of size, but those guys are very athletic".

For most games, though last Saturday's 77-67 loss at Missouri was an exception, as was the home loss to Kentucky, depth has been in Arkansas' favor.
