@RazorbackMBB Out Paced At LSU
FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas went on runs twice, cutting the LSU lead to single digits in both efforts but came up short, falling 88-74 in Baton Rouge, La.
Four Razorbacks finished in double digits, led by junior Rashad Madden's 17 points and a team high five rebounds. Freshman Bobby Portis matched Madden's rebound total with 5, including three offensive boards, and added 15 buckets of his own for his 15th double figure outing this season. Senior Kikko Haydar finished with a career high 15 points on 3-of-6 from downtown, all coming in the second half. Senior Coty Clarke was the fourth and final Razorback in double figures with 10 points.
Arkansas' shooting heated up in the second half, improving to almost 40 percent, but they weren't able to keep up with the Tigers who shot 64 percent from the field and over 40 percent from three-point range.
The Razorbacks won the turnover battle with only 10 turnovers to LSU's 14, marking the 24th time in 25 contests.
