The Arkansas Razorbacks are moments away from starting their bid for a potential upset of a No. 1 seed for a second straight season. This time, they’ll be tasked with trying to stop the high-powered attack of the Kansas Jayhawks.
Arkansas will be startingAnthony Black, Ricky Council, Nick Smith Jr., Devo Davis and Kamani Johnson – the same starting lineup that we saw against Illinois back on Thursday afternoon. Kansas will be without their head coach Bill Self, who is still recovering from a medical procedure from last week.
This is the 14th meeting between the two schools all-time, and the Jayhawks hold an 8-5 advantage over the Razorbacks. With a win, the Razorbacks would advance to a third consecutive Sweet 16 for the first time since 1996.

Starting lineup for 8-seed Arkansas vs 1-seed Kansas:
– Anthony Black
