Arkansas vs San Diego State Prediction & Pick

Head coach Eric Musselman has a ton of aggressive players on his roster this season. Arkansas plays powerful defense and forces opponents to rack up 20.6 turnovers per game (No. 7 in NCAA). The tenacity of players like freshman Anthony Black and junior Ricky Council IV cannot be understated.

Yes, aggressive defense can result in personal fouls as well. San Diego State is only shooting 74.6% from the free throw line, though (No. 91 in NCAA). The Aztecs have been much more lax on defense this year, allowing 71.6 points per game (T-No. 189 in NCAA). Arkansas pulls this one out in the end.

Final Score Prediction: Arkansas: 70 | San Diego State: 65
