FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Coming off a convincing 91-71 win over Indiana State in the first round of the NIT, No. 3 seed Arkansas will now head west to take on No. 2 seed California in the second round on Monday at 10 p.m. CT on ESPN2. The Golden Bears defeated Utah Valley on Wednesday night to earn a home showdown with the Razorbacks.

Monday’s meeting will be the second between the two teams this season, as they met in the opener of the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational in November. California (20-13) got the best of Arkansas by an 85-77 margin and went on to finish in a tie for third in the Pac-12 standings.  

Arkansas earned its 22nd win over the season on Monday night behind a program NIT record and career-high 28 points from sophomore Anthlon Bell that included six three-pointers. Bell’s career-night highlighted a season-high six players in double figures for the Razorbacks as they picked up their first postseason win since 2008.

The NIT appearance is the third in program history for the Razorbacks, as they are 5-3 all-time in the NIT. All five wins have come in Fayetteville, while Arkansas advanced to Madison Square Garden in its last NIT appearance in 1997.

Through the first two nights of postseason play in the NCAA Tournament, NIT and CBI combined, the SEC is 6-0. The SEC accounts for four of the 16 teams remaining in the NIT field.
