Arkansas built a double digit lead but had to hang on to take down Clemson 74-68 at Bud Walton Arena.

Michael Qualls scored 17 points off the bench to lead the Razorbacks (6-2) while Rashad Madden and Bobby Portis finished with 14 and 13 points respectively.

Madden helped Arkansas blow the game open as he drilled back-to-back 3-pointers to start the second half as Clemson fell behind 46-32.

Arkansas knocked down 10 3-pointers in the game, including a 4-of-5 performance from Madden.

Clemson was paced by K.J. McDaniels with 27 points while Damarcus Harrison and Rod Hall combined for 23 points in the loss.

Arkansas improved to 5-0 at Bud Walton this season and will be back on its home floor Thursday when the Razorbacks host Savannah State.
