Arkansas coach Tom Collen believes Arkansas has done enough to earn the school's first NCAA tournament berth since the 2002-03 season.

The Razorbacks hope to build on that resume at the SEC Tournament this week.

Arkansas (21-7) opens as the No. 5 seed against Ole Miss (12-17) on Thursday. It lost to the Rebels earlier this season, a loss that sent the Razorbacks to 0-4 in the SEC.

Much has changed since then for Arkansas, which followed that loss with an eight-game winning streak and set a school record for SEC wins (10) win a season.

Those wins included three over ranked teams, including the school's first win at Tennessee. The Razorbacks haven't won an SEC Tournament game since 2005.
