Arkansas Basketball, 1950s

Arkansas had its worst postseason showing in the 1958 tournament. After an opening round bye, Oklahoma State crushed the Hogs by 25 points. In the regional third place game, future NBA Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson torched the Hogs for 56 points as Cincinnati steamrolled Arkansas 97-62. Robertson nearly out-shot the entire team, going 21 of 36 from the floor, with Arkansas finishing 22 of 87.
