NCAA Tournament Butler vs. Arkansas

NCAA Tournament Butler vs. Arkansas

Updates with quotes, new lead.

Butler and Arkansas face off Friday in a contest between the 10 seed and 7 seed in the East Region.

The win turned out to be more hard than it needed to be, considering the Bulldogs held an early 21-2 lead.

Having won late night SEC Tournament games against SC and Florida Thursday and Friday in St. Louis before Saturday afternoon's loss to Tennessee, the Razorbacks just met as a team upon Sunday night's NCAA Tournament selection.

The Razorbacks heated up and the Bulldogs cooled off.

"We got up big and I didn't expect to beat them by 20", Jordan said following his game with the Razorbacks. But I thought the killer was when those offensive rebounds or rebounds that we had on our hands, they were able to get those. "It was all about the next play".

Even though Butler is seeded 10th in the East Region, they are a risky team to face. Though the favored seed, it seems Arkansas is less apt to look beyond to Sunday's second round for Friday's survivor than does Butler.

The Bulldogs (21-13) raced to a 21-2 lead in the opening minutes, only for Arkansas to answer with a 27-6 tear.

The Hogs will finish their season at 23-12 overall.

"One thing about Butler, they've got tradition", Anderson said.

That advantage was brief, though. But Arkansas would go into halftime down 36-31.

It was easier for the Bulldogs to "keep a poise" when they were defending the 3-point line so well. He scored 27 points on the day and pulled down nine rebounds.

"Butler did good tonight by making tough shots, getting rebounds, getting key stops", Barford said.

This is the 16th NCAA Tournament appearance for Butler (20-13, 9-9 Big East), which is most well-known for their back-to-back NCAA Championship Game appearances in 2010 and 2011 under former coach Brad Stevens. Stretching back six weeks Arkansas is 8-3 SU and 7-3-1 ATS over its last 11 games.

Gafford came into the game shooting 61.8 percent from the field, but he was 2 of 9 Friday.

Butler then failed to score on three consecutive possessions as Baldwin and Martin had turnovers and Martin missed a three-point attempt.

It would have been an ambush but Butler was the better basketball team because of effort.

"The Baldwin kid is really, really good", Anderson said. We have to make them uncomfortable.

Arkansas shot 35.7 percent from the field and just 22.2 percent from 3-point range.

"I didn't think Daniel played one of his better games", Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said. "I think the fans are the winners". I just didn't think he finished well around the basket. "I was one of the older guys on the team, and I had to be mature about the situation". "That's all you can ask".

As a reward for their victory over the Razorbacks, Butler gets another showdown with the Purdue Boilermakers in the Round of 32. The Boilermakers beat the Bulldogs 82-67 on December 16, but Purdue won't have Isaac Haas this weekend after he injured his elbow in Friday's win over Cal State Fullerton.

When head coach LaVall Jordan was an assistant coach at MI, they played Arkansas a couple of times, and knows he can expect a lot of pressing and a lot of up-tempo play.
