A look at what’s happening in the NCAA Tournament on Saturday:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — For 40 frenzied minutes, JD Notae, Jaylin Williams and Arkansas played a maddening, muscular style on both ends that took Gonzaga out of its game — and right out of the NCAA Tournament far earlier than these Zags expected.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — JD Notae scored 21 points despite missing 20 shots and fourth-seeded Arkansas made Gonzaga miserable on both ends of the floor, bouncing the top overall seed from the NCAA Tournament with a 74-68 win on Thursday night.
Arkansas guard JD Notae has a well-earned reputation as a big-time performer.

Kentucky forward Oscar Tshiebwe is a unanimous pick as The Associated Press player of the year in the Southeastern Conference.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The first half, No. 13 Tennessee looked totally prepared for the SEC Tournament and beyond. After that, things got more precarious.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Noah Gurley scored Alabama's final four points including the winning bucket with 27 seconds left and the Crimson Tide beat Arkansas 68-67 on Saturday to end the Razorbacks' nine-game winning streak.
JD Notae was the best player inside Arkansas' Bud Walton Arena on Tuesday night, getting the better of Auburn’s potential lottery picks.
The Arkansas point guard finished with 28 points, five rebounds, four blocks, three assists and three steals as the Razorbacks stunned the top-ranked Tigers 80-76.
