FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Moses Kingsley and Dusty Hannahs each scored 21 points and Arkansas forced 25 turnovers to snap a two-game losing streak in a 117-78 win over Northwestern State on Tuesday.

The Razorbacks (3-3) scored 39 points off Northwestern State's turnovers as the Demons struggled mightily against Arkansas' up-tempo pressure. The victory was the highest-scoring outing in coach Mike Anderson's five years at Arkansas and the most points the Razorbacks have scored since a 130-68 win over Alcorn State on Nov. 13, 2009.

Anthlon Bell added 17 points, Jabril Durham 14 points and 10 assists, Willy Kouassi 12 points, Keaton Miles 11 and Jimmy Whitt 10 for the Hogs.

Zeek Woodley scored a game-high 26 and Ishmael Lane 17 for Northwestern State (1-6), which shot a respectable 47 percent but was undone by its turnovers.

Arkansas led 54-38 at halftime, an advantage that ballooned past 30 in the first eight minutes of the second half.
