FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- BJ Young scored 19 points and Arkansas cruised to an 86-51 win over Delaware State on Saturday.
The Razorbacks recorded one of their most lopsided wins of the season by connecting on 58 percent of their field-goal attempts, including a season-high-tying 10 3-pointers. Freshman Antlon Bell hit four shots from beyond the arc and finished with 12 points.
Arkansas (9-4) complemented its hot shooting with a suffocating defense that resulted in 23 points off 16 Hornets turnovers. The Razorbacks held Delaware State (6-9) to 38 percent shooting, allowing only seven made field goals before halftime.
The Hornets started well, staking an early four-point lead before going cold. Delaware State went 7:01 without a field goal in the first half while Arkansas used a 23-2 run to seize control of the game.
Casey Walker led the Hornets with 13 points.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
