The Pick:

  • The Razorbacks are in the Sweet 16 on the back of its 14th-ranked defense. They survived a scare from 13-seed Vermont 75-71 in the first round and then puts the clamps on 12-seed New Mexico State in the second round 53-48.
  • Neither win was convincing and the Razorbacks continue to struggle from deep. They rank 313th in the country in 3PT% and shot just 33% in the first round and 18.8% in the second round. That’s going to be a real problem if they’re hoping to take down a Bulldogs team that’s put up 87.5 points per game in its two wins.
  • However, the Razorbacks will want to push the pace as they are 28th in adjusted tempo. That fast pace has led to a fair share of missed shots, as they are just 191st in the country, shooting 44% from the field, but Notae and Umude have both been solid all-around contributors in both wins.
  • The Bulldogs have been susceptible to defensive lapses early in the tournament. They had to battle from down ten in the second half against Memphis and the underdog Tigers only turned the ball over five times in the entire game. This was after Georgia State scored 72 points and only turned the ball over seven times in the opening round.
  • The offense for the Bulldogs has been on fire. They shot 50.7% from the field in round one and 51.7% in round two. Drew Timme has double-doubled in both games, including going for 32 points and 13 rebounds in round one.
  • The Razorbacks do have 14 steals across the two games, including eight by Notae against New Mexico State, so even if they can’t fully stop the Bulldogs, they could create enough chaos to keep this game closer than the spread.
