Hogs finish off non-conference with 86-51 win over Delaware State

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The University of Arkansas men’s basketball team stung the Delaware State Hornets with an 86-51loss at Bud Walton Arena on Saturday night. The Razorbacks shined in their final non-conference game of the season, as sophomore BJ Young put up his fourth-consecutive double-digit scoring game racking up 19 points on an impressive 8-of-9 shooting.

“This was a good way to end the non-conference schedule,” head coach Mike Anderson said. “It’s a game where I thought we attacked them offensively and defensively as well. We made shots, and when you make shots it makes a big difference.”

Arkansas fans in attendance were treated to a show as they saw all 13 of the Razorbacks score. Freshman Anthlon Bell finished with a double-digit scoring performance with 12 points off a career-high four three-point baskets. Bell led the Razorbacks to a 52 percent three-point shooting performance (10-19).

The Razorback bench contributed 41 of Arkansas’ 86 points en route to Arkansas’ fifth-consecutive victory. Arkansas ends its non-conference schedule at 9-4.

After trailing the Hornets in the opening minutes of the game, the Razorbacks began to hit their stride at the 15-minute mark going on a 16-0 run with Young and Powell scoring 14 of Arkansas’ 16 points. The run put the Hogs up 20-8, as they grabbed a 12-point lead with 10:54 left on the clock. The Razorbacks would keep up the pressure holding the Hornets scoreless for 6:25 as they racked up 11 points. In a first half full of Razorback highlights, one of the biggest of the night came when Michael Qualls picked off the Hornets at half court and dribbled the ball down the court for a momentous dunk that put Arkansas up 27-10.

Arkansas went into the locker room with a 25-point lead, 43-18. The Razorbacks held the Hornets to just 18 first-half points, which were the fewest by a visiting team in a first half since Arkansas held Florida A&M to 11 points on Feb. 16, 2011.

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
