Norman, Okla. – The No. 21 Arkansas Razorback baseball team completed their quest to advance to a NCAA Super Regional with a stunning 11-0 victory over the No. 9 Oklahoma Sooners behind a superb pitching performance by redshirt freshman Drew Smyly and a fantastic day at the plate from the region’s most outstanding player Andy Wilkins.

“I am just so proud of the team,” Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn said. “What an effort they gave us. I think that you could probably see it from the stands but I am talking some big time hustle and they gave us everything they had. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
