KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Dusty Hannahs and Anthlon Bell combined to score 33 points and shoot 7 of 10 from 3-point range Saturday night as Arkansas won 75-65 over Tennessee, which played without two of its top three scorers.

Hannahs scored 17 points and shot 3 of 4 from beyond the arc. Bell had 16 points and was 4 of 6 on 3-pointers. The duo helped Arkansas (15-14, 8-8 SEC) win its third straight game and earn just its second road victory of the season.

Tennessee (13-16, 6-10) played its third straight game without Kevin Punter Jr., who has a stress fracture in his right foot. Punter averages 22.2 points per game and entered the day ranked 12th nationally in scoring. The Volunteers also were missing Robert Hubbs III, who averages 10.8 points per game.

Armani Moore had 17 points and 11 rebounds for Tennessee, which has lost four of its last five games.
