FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM)- All it took was a Dusty Hannahs three-pointer at the start off the game and the Razorbacks never looked back. Saturday night at Bud Walton arena Arkansas hosted Tennessee, and throughout the whole contest the Hogs never lost their lead winning by 18-points 82-68

The Razorbacks played one of their most consistent games of the season Saturday, because the Hogs shot 52.6 percent from the field while also managing to do a great job on defense holding Tennessee to 35.4 percent in shooting for the night.

Arkansas big man Moses Kingsley led the team with 17-points and was 8-for-11 on shooting. Dusty Hannahs was not far behind him with 13-points to add to the win total. But, this win was not about luck for the Razorbacks, who were coming off of a road loss, it was all about what they have been hammering at practice clicking on the court.

“We just try to do what we do everyday at practice and bring it to the game,” said Manny Watkins on the win. “When we do it well we get games like this with a little bit of a lead, that’s what we do we just try to bring practice to the game.”

After the Razorbacks big win tonight their next mission will be looking to improve their 1-6 record on the road. Tuesday the will head to Mississippi State to take on the Bulldogs. The two have already played earlier this season beating the Bulldogs 82-68.
