At halftime, the Rebels took a one-point advantage at 35-34 into the locker room.

Arkansas opened the final 20-minutes of action on a 4-0 run to take a lead. From that point, it was a back-and-forth affair with a total of 21 lead changes with four ties.

The Rebels finished the game showing 53.7 percent from the field and 27.3 percent from beyond the arc in the game. The Razorbacks shot over 50 percent in the game.
