FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- The Arkansas bench outscored the Vols reserves, 46-9, as the Razorbacks handed Tennessee a 73-60 defeat on Saturday afternoon at Bud Walton Arena.

The Vols saw their modest two-game win streak come to an end as they fell to 11-9 overall and 3-5 in the league. Tennessee stayed winless on the road at 0-6.

Arkansas (13-8, 4-4 SEC) was led by B.J. Young, who tallied 25 off the bench. Marshawn Powell added 12. The Hogs outscored the Vols 12-0 in fastbreak points and turned ball over just eight times, compared to 20 for UT.

Jarnell Stokes led the Vols with 18 points and 10 rebounds. It was his seventh double-double of the year and third in a row.

Kenny Hall had his best game in SEC play with 14 points and five boards. Josh Richardson chipped in with 11 points and nine boards. Freshman Derek Reese snagged a career-high eight rebounds.

Tennessee trailed for the final 27 minutes of the game, but made a late-game push which came up short.

Skylar McBee's 3-pointer with 3:12 left brought the Vols within nine at 65-56. The Vols' defense them forced a shot-clock violation and Jordan McRae made a free throw with 2:25 left for an eight-point deficit. Another stop of Arkansas' offense led to a free throw by Stokes with 1:47 left, making it 65-58.

Young's jumper with 1:15 left ended any hope for the Vols. He added a pair of free throws to regain the double-figure lead at 69-58 with 59.7 seconds left.

Up by 10 at the half, Arkansas scored the first six points of the second half to build a 16-point lead at 41-25 with 2:25 gone by in the half. The Vols cut the deficit to single-digits midway through the second half. After a Hall jumper made it 49-40 with 10:16 left, Arkansas responded with five of the next six points to increase its lead to 54-41.



 

The Vols continued to battle but Arkansas answered each time Tennessee got within three possessions. A Hall free throw brought the Vols within eight at 54-46 with 7:13 left. Then a Stokes dunk cut it to 60-51. But each time Arkansas came back on the other each to regain a double-figure advantage.

Young came off the bench for Arkansas and tallied 12 points in the first half to lead the Razorbacks to a 35-25 edge at intermission. The Hogs outscored the Vols 24-2 on bench points in the first half. Richardson led the Vols with nine points in the first half.

The teams traded the lead 12 times in the first 13 minutes of the game with neither team leading by more than three points during that span. A 3-pointer by Young with 6:08 left in the first half, put Arkansas ahead, 22-18. A 3-point play by Young with 4:33 left extended the lead to 27-20. A 9-0 run by the Hogs increased the lead to 11 at 31-20.

The Vols went more than five minutes without a field goal before Richardson canned a jumper with 2:10 left in the half.

Vols point guard Trae Golden missed the game with a hamstring injury. He had played 60 games in a row. It was the first game he missed since Feb. 19, 2011, vs. Georgia in his freshman season.
