For once, the comeback kids from Arkansas didn’t have an answer. Pulling off yet another double-digit rally wasn’t going to happen against top-seeded Baylor. Arkansas’ NCAA Tournament run ended with an 81-72 loss to Baylor in the South Region final. The Razorbacks were overwhelmed by early pressure from the Bears, finding themselves facing another big deficit. After pulling within four midway through the second half, the Razorbacks went cold from the field, missing 12 straight shots and going more than eight minutes without a made basket. The Hogs have not made a Final Four since 1995.
