Dexter Pittman had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 2 Texas remained unbeaten with a 96-85 victory over Arkansas on Tuesday night.
The Longhorns (14-0) made nine of 11 shots during a 20-9 run in
breaking from a 48-48 halftime tie. Arkansas (7-8) cut the margin
to two in the final minutes but couldn't pull even.
Rotnei Clarke scored 24 points for the Razorbacks.
Arkansas beat Texas 67-61 here last January, but the Razorbacks
are only 9-23 since. The Longhorns were much more impressive
offensively this time around, shooting 59 percent from the field.
Arkansas trailed 86-84 after Michael Washington scored on an
offensive rebound, but Damion James made an open shot from near the
free throw line, and Jordan Hamilton's dunk with just under a
minute remaining made it a six-point game.
