Arkansas holds off Seton Hall 77-71 in NCAA South Region

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) Arkansas did just enough in the final minute to push its way through the NCAA Tournament's first round - aided by a couple of eye-catching calls and noncalls by the officiating crew, too.

Jaylen Barford hit the go-ahead layup with 57.8 seconds left to help Arkansas hold off Seton Hall 77-71 on Friday in the first round of the South Region.

Barford had 12 of his 20 points after halftime for the eighth-seeded Razorbacks (26-9), who erased an 8-point second-half hole and scored the final 7 points of the game to earn the program's third straight opening-game NCAA win.
