More About Arkansas

Collin Wilson: Eric Musselman is primed for another run to the Elite Eight and a chance to make the Final Four trip to New Orleans.

Arkansas started the SEC season 0-3 before rattling off 14 wins in 15 conference games. Boasting a 7-2 against-the-spread (ATS) mark on the road, the Razorbacks have more buzz than just a team that depends on the home crowd at Bud Walton Arena. Arkansas has thrived in transition offense with heavy emphasis on finishing at the rim. From a defensive perspective, the Hogs have feasted against heavy screen and post-up offenses.

The key to beating the Razorbacks is a lockdown wing defender on JD Notae and strong protection at the rim. Opponents without those elements will have no luck knocking off the Hogs.

More About New Mexico State

Chase Howell: New Mexico State is heading back to the tournament for the first time since 2019. That’s after the Aggies missed the tournament just once from 2012-2019.

New Mexico State is back to the mid-major power we got accustomed to during that timeframe. It finished 26-6 on the season and won both the WAC regular season and conference tournament title.

Former Nebraska Cornhusker Teddy Allen leads the way for the Aggies, averaging 19.3 points per game. Sir’Jabari Rice is Allen’s sidekick and averages 12.2 points per game.

This is a team that no one would be surprised to see pull off an upset.
