Arkansas to open NCAA tournament with rematch
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' baseball season has come full circle.
The Razorbacks will open the NCAA tournament today against Washington State, the same team Arkansas played in its first series of the season back in February.
The Hogs swept three games against the Cougars by a combined five runs. Arkansas is seeded second in its four-team, double-elimination regional, which is hosted by Oklahoma.
The Razorbacks also played Oklahoma during the regular season, beating the Sooners 8 to 7 in ten innings April 28th.
Arkansas tied that game with two runs in the bottom of the ninth, then won it on a bases-loaded walk.
