Arkansas suffers in the first half against Colorado State.

Despite its slow start, the Arkansas men’s basketball team improved to 6-2 Tuesday night, as the Razorbacks defeated the Colorado State Rams 92-66.

Arkansas got off to a slow start for the second consecutive game, spotting the Rams 10 points before the Razorbacks could figure out anything on the offensive end. Arkansas would take care of the ball, turning it over zero times in the first period, to settle in and take control of the game. Freshman Daniel Gafford would sub in and make an immediate impact. The big man recorded a block on the Razorbacks proceeding defensive possession, then scored seven of Arkansas’ next 10 points, including five straight, to assist in a 19-0 Razorback run.

After being down by as many as 11 early, the Razorbacks would take an 18-point lead into the break, after closing the half on a 10-0 run. The Razorbacks would control the second half and ride it out to a 26-point win, their fourth win this season of 25 points or more. Arkansas led by as many as 29 in the game.

Arkansas returns to Bud Walton Arena on Saturday, as the Razorbacks play host to the No. 14 Minnesota Golden Gophers as 5:45 p.m. on the SEC Network
