Young, Arkansas cruise past Delaware St 86-51

Posted:

FAYETTEVILLE, AR (AP) - BJ Young scored 19 points and Arkansas cruised to an 86-51 win over Delaware State on Saturday.
    
Young, a sophomore guard, made 8 of 9 field-goal attempts, including both of his shots from 3-point range, scoring in double-figures for the 11th time in 12 games.
    
The Razorbacks recorded one of their most lopsided wins of the season by connecting on 58 percent of their field-goal attempts, including a season-high-tying 10 3-pointers. Freshman Antlon Bell hit four shots from beyond the arc and finished with 12 points.
    
Arkansas (9-4) complemented its hot shooting with a suffocating defense that resulted in 23 points off 16 Hornets turnovers. The Razorbacks held Delaware State (6-9) to 38 percent shooting, allowing only seven field goals before halftime.
    
The Hornets started well, staking an early four-point lead before going cold. Delaware State went 7:01 without a field goal in the first half while Arkansas used a 23-2 run to seize control of the game.
    
The Razorbacks' run eventually stretched to 34-4 and Arkansas held a commanding 43-18 advantage at halftime.
    
Thirteen of the Razorbacks' 14 players made at least one field goal in the win. Coty Clarke, Arkansas' second-leading rebounder, didn't attend the game due a family emergency.
    
Casey Walker led the Hornets with 13 points and Tahj Tate added 10.
