Arkansas hurt by controversial calls against North Carolina

Seventh Woods dives for a loose ball

"It's one of those games that you want to play in", Hannahs said, knowing North Carolina was the likely opponent.

Wichita State entered the tournament with the pressure of being the team that every single media member said got screwed.

A 17-point lead evaporated as Roy Williams ran out of offensive options - until assistant C.B. McGrath suggested a play out of a late timeout, and Jackson fed Hicks on a slipscreen for an easy dunk that brought the Tar Heels within one.

Arkansas' aggressive and harassing defence.

The frantic, frenetic first week of March Madness is upon us and at times, it can all seem a bit too mad.

"I'm feeling pretty good", Berry said. Justin Jackson also struggled, making just five shots from the field with three of them going for three. Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson told TNT after the game. "We wanted to bust up some brackets".

The Tar Heels said they won't be overconfident despite the success of No. 1 seeds in second-round games. And when Jaylen Barford scored in transition off a turnover, Arkansas led 65-60 with 3:28 left. The lefty gave up just two hits, walked one and struck out a career-high eight hitters in the no-decision.

Daryl Macon scored 19 to lead eighth-seeded Arkansas (26-10), which was trying to reach the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1996.

"Our main focus is not to worry about what seed we are, what seed they are, because they're a great team", Meeks said.

With their backs against the wall and down three runs in their final at bat, the Jackets refused to quit as Johnson led off the inning with a double to center. He made sure it wasn't something that hung over his game for long.

UNC's Brett Daniels (1-0) earned the win in a relief effort, striking out nine over 4.1 scoreless innings out of the bullpen.

The Razorbacks said they're looking forward to another shot at the Tar Heels, not dreading it. Free throws played a big role in Friday's win, as the Razorbacks were 18-for-23 at the line while Seton Hall was just 13-for-21. It was either a block, a travel or a charge, in that order, but the whistles stayed completely silent. The clocked was ticking down on Carolina's season before they, as Meeks put it, came together as Carolina. "Getting to play here for us is a big thing, just getting the opportunity to play in front of our family and friends".

While the Tar Heels took over late, Arkansas squandered its chances to reclaim momentum. Moses Kingsley missed a pair of free throws and Anton Beard's potential game tying 3-pointer was off the mark with 10 seconds left.

"We've got to play outstanding basketball", Anderson said.

But Berry rolled his right ankle in the first-round victory over Texas Southern on Friday.
