Arkansas started the game 3-of-4 from beyond the arc. Mardracus Wade accounted for a pair of the 3-pointers to make it a 9-2 game early on.

Holding a 14-8 lead with 15:13 left in the first half, the Razorbacks created some distance with a 22-5 run. The home team made four 3-pointers during the surge to build a 36-13 margin.
