The Gemini team: Arkansasí home-court advantage is incredible. The Razorbacks looked like a national championship contender in blowing the doors off Florida 80-69 Tuesday night in Fayetteville but donít be deceived. Florida, which really is a national championship contender, never had a chance. Arkansas is 14-1 at home, the only loss was to Syracuse (the only reason the Orange played the game was because of the SEC-Big East Challenge). The Hogs have played only five road games (only one non-conference) and lost them all. They also lost two neutral site games. So, Fayetteville will be a tough spot for SEC teams for the rest of the season but figure the Hogs will be no threat on the road.

Other Tuesday observations:
-- BC ran into one of the hottest and may best teams in the country in falling to Miami 72-50. The Hurricanes have transformed into a juggernaut.
-- Wichita State is officially a disaster after losing to Southern Illinois.
-- Akron had a letdown against Central Michigan following its big win over Ohio but the Zips woke up and took charge in the final five minutes. It was impressive.
-- Great rebound by Michigan to beat Ohio State in overtime following its loss at Indiana.
