What to Know

The #17 Arkansas Razorbacks and the #1 Gonzaga Bulldogs are set to clash at 7:09 p.m. ET March 24 at Chase Center in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

Arkansas earned some more postseason success in their game on Saturday. They snuck past the New Mexico St. Aggies with a 53-48 victory. The top scorer for the Razorbacks was guard JD Notae (18 points).

Meanwhile, it was a close one, but on Saturday the Bulldogs sidestepped the Memphis Tigers for an 82-78 win. It was another big night for Gonzaga's forward Drew Timme, who posted a double-double on 25 points and 14 rebounds.

Arkansas is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Hofstra Pride Dec. 18 easily too and instead slipped up with an 89-81. In other words, don't count Gonzaga out just yet.
