Arkansas men's basketball coach Eric Musselman was loving it after his team took down Gonzaga in the Sweet 16 on Thursday night.

The No. 4 seed Razorbacks pulled off one heck of an upset as they forced the top-seeded Bulldogs to take tough shots and slowed down their vaunted attack.

With only one second left on the clock, Musselman was fired up as he knew his team was advancing to the Elite Eight.

The Razorbacks had a great game plan all night long as they were able to stifle some of the Bulldogs' top weapons. Outside of Drew Timme who had 25 points, Gonzaga only had two other players who finished in double-figures.

With this win, a whole lot of brackets are now officially busted. A lot of people thought this was finally the year that Gonzaga would win it all, but Arkansas had other plans.

The Razorbacks are now back in the Elite Eight for the second-straight season. This is the first time they've gone to back-to-back Elite Eights since 1994 and 1995.

Arkansas will get the winner of Texas Tech-Duke on Saturday.
