FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Fresh off an SEC Tournament Championship appearance, the Arkansas men’s basketball team punched its ticket to the Big Dance on Sunday night, earning a No. 8 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Winning eight of their last 10 games, the Razorbacks (25-9) will square off against the Seton Hall Pirates (21-11) of the Big East Conference in the round of 64 in Greenville, South Carolina. Arkansas will play its opening game on Friday at 12:30 p.m.

The Razorbacks are a No. 8 seed for the second time in program history, holding an overall record of 0-1.

Arkansas is making its 31st appearance in the NCAA Tournament and its second appearance in a three-year span for the first time in nine years. In the Razorbacks’ last NCAA Tournament appearance, Arkansas defeated the 12-seed Wofford Terriers 56-53 in the round of 64, before falling to fourth-seeded North Carolina.

Arkansas is 41-30 all-time in their previous 30 appearances and is 19-11 in its first game in the tournament.

This marks head coach Mike Anderson’s eighth appearance in the NCAA Tournament as a head coach. Anderson is 8-7 all-time in the Big Dance, having advanced as far as the Elite Eight in 2008-09 during his days at Missouri.
