Arkansas Hangs On For 75-71 Win Over 13th-Seeded Vermont
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Stanley Umude scored 21 points, JD Notae scored all 17 of his points in the second half, and No. 4 seed Arkansas hung on for a 75-71 victory over 13th-seeded Vermont in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Jaylin Williams scored 13 points and had 10 rebounds for the Razorbacks, who a year ago reached the Elite Eight before losing to eventual champion Baylor.
I’m tired of tweeting about the officials. They’re terrible. I’m moving on. Arkansas has to overcome both Vermont and the stripes.
