The Pirates had multiple chances, missing a would-be go-ahead shot and then, after an official review determined they should keep the ball when it went out of bounds, committed another turnover.

An intentional foul against Seton Hall allowed Barford to sink two free throws with 18 seconds left, with Arkansas retaining possession and going on to win.

Arkansas plays either North Carolina or Texas Southern in Sunday's second round of the South Regional.

Khadeen Carrington's 22 points led the Pirates. Angel Delgado provided 12 points and 12 rebounds, Madison Jones added 11 points and Myles Powell and Desi Rodriguez both scored 10 points for the ninth-seeded Seton Hall (21-12), which was in the NCAA Tournament in back-to-back seasons for the first time since a four-year run in the early 1990s.

Seton Hall went through a scoring drought of about 4 1/2 minutes while Arkansas surged ahead at 70-68.

Moments earlier, Seton Hall stormed to a 64-56 lead with less than nine minutes remaining, continuing an assault on the offensive boards.

The Razorbacks used a 12-4 run to pull even on Barford's basket at the 5:15 mark.

Seton Hall ended with a 45-33 rebounding advantage, but was hurt by 15 turnovers.

Carrington reached the 20-point mark for the first time in seven games.

The score was tied 37-37 at halftime, with neither team leading by more than five points.

Seton Hall used 11 offensive rebounds in the half to help make up for 37.8-percent shooting.

Kingsley had his way in the lane at the other end, connecting on seven of nine first-half attempts from the field.
