Arkansas Advances To Super Regional

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Freshman Drew Smyly had a no-hitter broken

up with one out in the ninth inning, and Andy Wilkins went 5-for-5

with two homers and five RBIs as Arkansas advanced to the super

regionals with an 11-0 win over Oklahoma on Sunday night.

Smyly's bid to throw the first NCAA tournament no-hitter in 18

years ended on an infield hit by Trey Sperring with one out in the

ninth. Shortstop Ben Tschepikow fielded the ball, but couldn't

throw over to first base in time.

Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn then took Smyly (3-1), and the

left-hander received a standing ovation.

Second-seeded Arkansas (37-22) posted its second win over

top-seeded Oklahoma (43-20) in as many nights, and its third this

season.
