(8) Arkansas has had a quietly successful season under Mike Anderson, who is one of few coaches to never have a losing season. And the Razorbacks run will continue after a close-knit defeat against (9) Seton Hall.
It was a close game throughout, but a controversial ending will be what everyone is talking about. Desi Rodriguez was trying to foul Jaylen Barford to stop the clock and send the Razorbacks to the line, as Seton Hall trailed 72-71. After initially calling a personal foul, following review, the referees upgraded it to a flagrant 1 foul, gifting Arkansas two free throws and the ball.

Because of the questionable call that essentially pushed the Razorbacks to the Round of 32, Anderson and Co. will most likely take on (1) North Carolina on Sunday afternoon, barring a monumental upset by (16) Texas Southern.
