Clarke paces Arkansas past Kentucky
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Coty Clarke had 14 points and 12 rebounds as Arkansas did its best to make a renewed case for a NCAA tournament bid with a convincing 73-60 win over Kentucky on Saturday.
Clarke also had six assists for the Razorbacks (18-11, 9-7 Southeastern Conference), who improved to 17-1 at home. Their only loss in Bud Walton Arena this season came to then-No. 6 Syracuse on Nov. 30, and they are now 33-4 at home under second-year coach Mike Anderson.
Marshawn Powell had 15 points and BJ Young added 13 for Arkansas, which snapped a two-game losing streak with the win.
Arkansas native Archie Goodwin led the Wildcats (20-9, 11-5) with 14 points, while Willie Cauley-Stein had 13 and Ryan Harrow 10.
