With its pressure defense forcing 33 turnovers, Arkansas rolled to an easy win its first exhibition game by hammering LeMoyne-Owen 101-60 Saturday afternoon at Bud Walton Arena.
Freshmen Rickey Scott had 16 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists to lead five Razorbacks that scored in double figures.
"We still have a lot of work to do," said Arkansas head coach John Pelphrey. "I thought there were some good plays made out there by our guys. I like our guys effort today. As a team, they play well together, but there are still some things to work on."
Senior Marcus Britt added 14 points, Glenn Bryant 12 points and 6 rebounds, Delvon Johnson 11 points and 8 caroms and Marvell Waithe 10 points for the Razorbacks.
Julysess Nobles added 9 points Michael Sanchez – who opened the game with a dunk – and Jemal Farmer added 8 points for the home team, who shot 52 percent from the field, 72 percent from the free throw line and 40 percent from 3-point range.
Marshawn Powell, who missed the Red-White game because of a foot injury, had 7 points and 4 rebounds in 11 minutes of action while freshman Mardracus Wade added 6 points.
Arkansas jumped out to a 14-2 lead less than four minutes into the ballgame and led 51-36 at intermission.
Scott and Britt both had 10 points in the first half of a game where all but the two walk ons scored for the Razorbacks.
Arkansas was without likely backcourt starters Jeff Peterson (hamstring) and Rotnei Clarke, who was serving the back end of a two-game suspension that included the Red-White game.
Former Marion standout A.J. Nance led LeMoyne Owen with 16 points in the return to his home state.
Memphis downed the Magicians 106-49 earlier this week.
The Razorbacks continue their exhibition season on Thursday when they host Victory College.
