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.
