LITTLE ROCK — The Heartbreak Hogs can't score after the under-four-minute timeout. No. 1 North Carolina (29-7, 14-4) scored 12 unanswered points in the final moments to slam the door on No. 8 Arkansas' comeback bid, 72-65. Arkansas (26-10, 12-6) trailed by 17 points in the first half, but took the lead by four points on a pair of occasions in the second half. The momentum was seemingly on the Hogs side, but UNC flexed its muscles and went on a 12-0 run to finish off the Razorbacks.
Junior Daryl Macon led the Hogs with 19 points, while Kennedy Meeks led the Tar Heels with his impressive double-double, 16 points and 11 rebounds. Senior Anton Beard added 10 points for the Hogs, while junior Jaylen Barford had a paltry shooting effort 4-for-14 from the field for only nine points.
In the end, the Razorbacks were overmatched by the Tar Heels down the stretch. UNC moves forward to the Sweet 16 and the Hogs' season has come to a bitter end. The Arkansas Razorbacks had a great season. Congratulations to the players and head coach Mike Anderson.
