How to Watch-Listen as Razorbacks Chase 'Hall of Fame' Championship

Arkansas got a big start against Kansas State on Monday night, then held on to reach championship game

Now we get to find out how Arkansas plays back-to-back, facing Cincinnati tonight in the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City.

The Razorbacks jumped on Kansas State early Monday night and held on with a 10-of-10 free throw performance from point guard Chris Lykes down the stretch for a 72-64 win.

"That’s what’s expected of me as a point guard,” Lykes said Monday night. “Coach trusts us to have the ball in those situations at the end of the game. In those fouling situations, you’ve just got to be able to knock down those free throws. It’s something we work on every day.”

It was the first time this season the Hogs have started fast and slowed down a team suddenly discovering how to shoot three-pointers at an alarming percentage.

Kansas State came back, but never over-took the Hogs.

"It’s hard to play with a big lead,” Musselman said. “They did what we expected a team like K-State to do. They fought back, and they scrapped. But I felt like we did a good job utilizing clock management to the point that even when we didn’t score, it was hard for them to overcome the lead we had."

Now the Hogs get the Bearcats, who surprised Illinois, 72-64.

They're really well-coached," Musselman said about Cincinnati. "They play really, really hard. They scrap, they play with toughness, and they look like a team with good chemistry.

"It looks like they enjoy playing with each other. It was a really impressive second half for Cincinnati against a very talented Illinois team."

Tip-off for the game is set for 8:30 p.m. and you can watch it on ESPN2 or FuboTV.
