Per SEC Sports: For the first time since three straight trips to the Sweet 16 from 1993-95, the Arkansas Razorbacks are headed back to the Sweet 16 for the second consecutive season thanks to a hard-fought 53-48 win over New Mexico State inside KeyBank Center on Saturday night.

The Razorbacks and Aggies put on a defensive clinic with a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line. Both teams struggled to score in the first half until, a 10-0 Arkansas run finally provided some separation. The Hogs held the Aggies to just 24% shooting in the first half, including 2-for-15 from 3-point range. The defense allowed Arkansas to take a nine-point lead into the break but defense was the theme of the night, including the second half.
