The Sweet Sixteen tipped off on Thursday, and the marquee matchup to keep an eye on is the semifinal game between Arkansas and UCONN.

Fox College Hoops’ John Fanta caught up with the golfing maverick to lock in his pick. Needless to say, Daly’s all in on his alma mater.

“Hogs are gonna win,” Daly said, expecting a hellish evening for the Huskies.

Through one half, it’s UCONN that’s been on. The Huskies have maintained a double-digit lead for the majority of the period. Arkansas goes into the half, down 46-29.

Surely it will take a Miyagi-like move at halftime by John Daly to wake up Arkansas.

After dethroning the one-seeded Kansas Jayhawks last week, the eighth-seeded Razorbacks are riding the high momentum. Meanwhile, No. 4 UCONN enters the game after handily beating St. Mary’s on Sunday.

Following Saturday’s upset win over the Jayhawks, Arkansas coach Eric Musselman shared that he frequently speaks with Daly to receive tips on keeping it cool on the big stage.

Now’s the time to put that advice to practice.
