Arkansas upsets defending champion Kansas to advance to Sweet 16

Mar 18, 2023

There will be no repeat champion in March Madness.

The top-seeded Kansas Jayhawks are headed home after being upset by No. 8 Arkansas, 72-71, in the second round.

Kansas led by as many as 12 points, but Arkansas responded with an 18-5 run to take a one-point lead, its first since it was 2-0.

Both teams exchanged buckets with neither team able to increase its lead by more than four points for several minutes.

The game was tied at 65 with 1:07 to go with the ball in the Razorbacks’ possession, and a tip-in gave them a two-point lead. The Jayhawks drew a foul in the double-bonus, though, and Jalen Wilson made both free throws with 39 seconds left to tie it up again.
