The conference’s top scoring offense put on a show Tuesday night, as the Arkansas men’s basketball team defeated the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles 104-69 for its sixth 20-point victory of the season.
Arkansas built its early lead thanks in large part to senior guard Anton Beard and sophomore guard C.J. Jones. Beard scored seven of Arkansas’ first 10 points, while Jones splashed three early three-pointers to stretch the Razorbacks’ lead to 30-12. Jones would lead Arkansas at halftime with 12 points, going 4-of-5 from behind the arc.
Arkansas will take the rest of the week off for the Holiday season, before returning to Bud Walton Arena next Wednesday, Dec. 27 against Cal State Bakersfield for a 7 p.m. tip off on SEC Network. It will be Arkansas’ final non-conference match-up before conference play starts against No. 21 Tennessee on Saturday, Dec. 30.
