This season’s 48-team spring tournament will take place entirely in North Carolina, due to COVID what-have-you. In normal years, higher-seeded teams, like Arkansas, would be playing a home game to open the tournament.
The Razorbacks played their conference season in the fall, then turned around and played a handful of non-conference games over the past two months. The Hogs won the regular season SEC championship and finished, for the fifth consecutive season, runner-up in the SEC Tournament.
The tournament begins April 27, with the national championship game on May 17.
