Senior Guard Duo Earns Preseason All-SEC Honors

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – - The Southeastern Conference released its 14th annual men’s basketball coaches preseason All-SEC first and second teams Friday morning with a pair of senior Razorback guards represented on the list.

Jaylen Barford and Daryl Macon both earned preseason All-SEC second team honors by the league head coaches, marking the second consecutive season Arkansas has had two players land on the teams. Moses Kingsley and Dusty Hannahs were named first and second team, respectively, a season ago.
