Seton Hall returns to NCAA Tournament, draws Arkansas

The SEC wraps up its conference tournament on Sunday at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville with a showdown between perennial conference power Kentucky, and longtime conference rival Arkansas.

"That's kids being kids", Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said Sunday.

Calipari said he didn't see it, but will address it with Monk.

Kentucky, led by star guards De'Aaron Fox (18 points) and Malik Monk (17 points), trailed for a total of 70 seconds in this one, all of which came in the first 11 minutes.

- Arkansas will begin the NCAA Tournament with a game against Seton Hall on Friday in Greenville, S.C.

"We really focused on defense", Watkins said.

The Rams could have a slot waiting for them regardless of what happens.

The Kentucky Wildcats (28-5) are coming from a 79-74 win over Alabama in which Dazon Ingram scored 17 points in 7-for-12 shooting from the field and 3-for-3 from the free throw line. But the freshman trio got help from senior Dominique Hawkins, who scored a season-high 14 points off the bench, and both Hawkins and Mychal Mulder hit 3-pointers in the final minute of the first half to quickly increase Kentucky's lead from six to 12 entering halftime.

We are there behind, of course, Chelsea because they are nearly unstoppable, but we are there for the rest of the teams. In the last game against Huddersfield he played awesome and scored two goals.

"Yeah, I probably deserved it", he said. He was joined by Fox and freshman forward Bam Adebayo. Nineteen-year-olds. He's playing against Arkansas, where he came from and (they're) all over him. "And these two gentlemen that are up here now, Riley Norris and Braxton Key, are huge reasons why we're advancing in the SEC tournament".

"When you smell blood, just keep attacking". So Monk finding that shot and Fox becoming an even more risky slicing scorer is critical to Cats' survival in their upcoming games. Arkansas will play its opening game on Friday at a time yet to be announced.

Villanova is the overall No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

"But there is no need for that and there's no place for that in what we're doing and what we are teaching at Kentucky". And that's fine to an Arkansas team carrying just as much momentum as the Cats.

"We have a winning culture and that's kind of what we're supposed to do", said Derek Willis, one of three seniors on Kentucky's roster who has been part of the last three SEC Tournament-winning teams. "They were talking [more] about Vandy and even Ole Miss after we beat them". These two met just once this season, with Kentucky getting a 97-71 win at home on January 7.

With the score tied 9-9, Arkansas' Kingsley was whistled for a technical foul when he complained to referee Doug Shows after a tie ball situation. We outscoring people early on.

"Anytime you are playing in an Arkansas-Kentucky game, those games are heated", Watkins said.
