RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Arkansas' Darian Townes marveled at the big numbers his teammate racked up. Walking off the podium in jubilant disbelief, he turned first to swingman Sonny Weems and then to coach John Pelphrey."You only missed two shots," Townes told Weems before repeating that message to his coach.Because of Weems' deft scoring touch, and because Townes always seemed to be there to clean up those rare misses, the Razorbacks are sticking around in the NCAA tournament at least a little longer than usual -- and Indiana's turbulent season is over.
Elias SaysSonny Weems scored 31 points in Arkansas' win over Indiana. The last player to score that many points against the Hoosiers in an NCAA Tournament game was Shaquille O'Neal in 1992 (36 points).
