After Saturday night’s stunning win by the No. 8 Razorbacks, where they toppled the first-seeded Kansas Jayhawks, Musselman shared Daly’s wise counsel, including a unique way of improving Arkansas’ free-throw shooting.

It was valuable advice from the Razorbacks superfan.


“He tried calling me, got a couple texts already,” Musselman said, as relayed by OutKick’s Trey Wallace.

“Before we hit the plane I’ll try to call John. You know, he’s been texting me even drills. Like he wanted our guys to get a putter out and hit a ball into a cup.

“We haven’t tried it yet, luckily we’ve been making foul shots. But I know the state of Arkansas is on fire right now and I know John Daly’s pretty pumped up too.”

Arkansas Advances To Sweet Sixteen

Musselman’s comments on Daly came second to his viral postgame celebration. Coach Muscle-man ran over to the Arkansas section and tore off his shirt, hyping up the crowd after the Razorbacks won, 72-71.

“That’s such an unbelievable win for our program,” Musselman added. “I keep telling people that we’re getting better. Not many teams can get better this time of year. I’ve never been prouder of a team like tonight.”

Don’t sleep on Arkansas as they press onward with their sage coaching tandem of Musselman and Daly.
