Rotnei Clarke has 25 points in Hogs win over LSU

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Rotnei Clarke scored 25 points,

connecting on 5-of-6 3-pointers, as Arkansas made quick work of LSU

in an 80-61 win on Saturday.

The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the

Razorbacks (15-9, 5-6 SEC), and it also gave them 15 wins for the

first time in three seasons. They finished with 14 victories in

each of the past two seasons.

The Tigers (10-15, 2-8) have now lost eight in a row, with their

last victory coming over Arkansas at home on Jan. 12. Matt

Derenbecker led LSU with 13 points.

Clarke had 15 points in the first half, during which Arkansas

forced 14 LSU turnovers. The Razorbacks took a 40-22 halftime lead.

The 25 points are the second-highest total by the junior this

season, only behind the 36 he scored in a win at Vanderbilt on Jan.

29.
