FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The Hogs made sure a rare February non-conference game was not a letdown.
Junior Rotnei Clarke scored 14 points to lead the Arkansas Razorbacks (16-9) to a 94-55 rout over the Florida A&M Rattlers (11-15), Wednesday night at Bud Walton Arena on Wednesday. The Hogs finished the non-conference season 10-0. The loss ends the Rattlers four-game winning streak.
"I am certainly happy to close our our non-conference schedule that way," said Arkansas Razorbacks Head Coach John Pelphrey. "Florida A&M had won four straight games and was playing their best basketball of the season."
The Hogs took control early, jumping out to a 27-4 lead. They extended that lead to 45-11 by halftime. The Razorbacks defense held the Rattlers to just 14 percent shooting from the field in the first 20 minutes.
