Hogs shot the ball better from all over the court and got their shot blocked a lot less. Encouragingly Arkansas was slightly better on the boards than the Heels, which is not traditionally a point of emphasis for Arkansas at either end. The Tar Heels had a higher assist rate and got more help from the refs. We know how that goes.

Defense was fairly even everywhere except that the Hogs turned over Bucknell significantly more often while rebounding and forcing misses at the same rate. The Heels blocked shots more often, but we forced a lower 2-FG%.
