Seton Hall returns to NCAA Tournament, draws Arkansas

An early-morning shootaround helped remedy Malik Monk's recent scoring woes.

The Razorbacks were one of the hottest team's among power-five conferences as they had won eight of their last nine games heading into the SEC tournament championship game against No. 8 Kentucky.

Fox capped off his tournament run with 18 points, three boards, two assists and two steals in Sunday's title game win over Arkansas.

The Wildcats shot 52 percent from the field and 69 percent from the line after missing numerous chances that left openings for the Crimson Tide to stay close. Monk hit both free throws to make it 11-9. Key was fouled attempting a 3-pointer, but only made the last of the three tries to cut Kentucky's lead to 64-62. But how could they possibly be expected to earn a top seed in the big dance every year?

Give Kentucky credit. They made some big shots. Here's how the rest of the tournament shook out, and how these two teams came to face off in the final.

"It was unfortunate, but at the same time, I think anybody was intent on trying to hurt anyone", Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said.
