Arkansas' Davonte Davis choked up while talking about defeating No. 1 Kansas
Arkansas guard Davonte Davis knew how much his team upsetting No. 1 Kansas meant to everyone in Razorback nation.
Davis led his team with 25 points as No. 8 Arkansas toppled No. 1 Kansas in Saturday’s round of 32 contest in the the 2023 men’s NCAA tournament.
As he was being interviewed postgame by CBS reporter Allie LaForce, Davis became overwhelmed with emotions while considering all that his team did to get to this moment.
“I feel good; I’m glad we came out with the win,” an emotional Davis said after the huge victory. “This team’s been struggling, and we figured it out…I’m glad we did at the right time, and hopefully we continue to do it.”

As you could imagine, making the Sweet 16 as a No. 8 seed is never something you can take for granted.
Davis played a phenomenal game on Saturday, and it’s very understandable as to why he showed such emotion after the victory. It’s upward and onward for Arkansas, who will live to fight another day in this year’s tournament.
