Qualls paces Arkansas past South Carolina 71-64

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Michael Qualls scored 20 points as Arkansas held off a second-half rally by South Carolina for a 71-64 win on Wednesday night.

The sophomore, who struggled mightily with his shooting to start conference play, finished 7 of 14 from the field - including 4 of 7 on 3-pointers - for the Razorbacks (17-9, 6-7 Southeastern Conference).

Coty Clarke added 12 points and 12 rebounds for Arkansas, which has won two straight games and four of five overall.

Brenton Williams led the Gamecocks (10-16, 3-10) with 29 points, finishing 11 of 20 from the field - including 6 of 13 on 3-pointers.

South Carolina, which finished 22 of 59 (37.3 percent) from the field, is now 0-10 on the road this season and has lost 17 straight road games.
