Arkansas 91, Oakland 68

Marshawn Powell scored 20 points Wednesday night as Arkansas

made easy work of Oakland, Mich., in a 91-68 victory.

Powell scored 18 points in the first half, helping the

Razorbacks (2-0) to a 55-27 halftime lead. The junior forward was 8

of 8 shooting in the half and finished 9 of 13.

Freshman BJ Young had 16 points for Arkansas, which led by as

many as 28 points in the first half and had six players finish in

double figures.

The Golden Grizzlies (0-2) closed the gap to 60-41 in the second

half after a 3-pointer and free throw by Reggie Hamilton, but the

Razorbacks took control after that. Travis Bader led Oakland with

21 points.

The loss was the second straight against a Southeastern

Conference team to open the season for the Golden Grizzlies, who

fell Monday at Alabama.
