The Razorbacks accomplished that goal, holding the foul-plagued Clark scoreless. It was one of few goals accomplished for Arkansas, though, as the Sooners more than picked up the slack in a 78-63 win at Lloyd Noble Center.
Steven Pledger scored 22 points, Andrew Fitzgerald 17 points and Tyler Neal 16 points to lead Oklahoma to its second win in three days.
"We had a really good flow going, a good run," Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said. "On a couple of occasions we lost focus through the 40 minutes...but overall we did a great job. A lot of guys stepped up and made plays for each other.
"We'd rather Cam not be in foul trouble, but when he is, guys have a lot of confidence in other guys coming into the ballgame and it doesn't change what we're doing."
The Sooners (7-1) hit 52 percent of their shots, including 50 percent of their 3-point attempts to avenge a loss to the Razorbacks last season in Fayetteville.
"They can get on a big run with that press if they get it going and cranking it up pretty good," Kruger said. "We avoided that, I thought."
Arkansas (5-3) couldn't match Oklahoma's shooting display. The Razorbacks missed their first 10 shots and hit only 34.5 percent of their attempts for the game.
"It probably wasn't one of our best performances, and probably one of our worst from a shooting standpoint," Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said.
"I just thought we showed some tendencies of a young basketball team. We kind of get rattled pretty easy."
The Razorbacks jumped to a 4-0 lead on a quartet of Rickey Scott free throws, but Oklahoma responded with a 12-0 run to take the lead for good.
Paced by Fitzgerald's 17 points before halftime, the Sooners led by as many as 15 points in the first half and 37-25 at the intermission.
Fitzgerald, who was celebrating his 21st birthday, had a career-high scoring output and also added a team-high eight rebounds.
"He was pretty tough," said Arkansas freshman forward Hunter Mickelson, who finished with 4 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks. "He's a good player and most of our guys inside are pretty young. It was definitely an experience."
Arkansas was led by B.J. Young, who scored 24 points in the loss. Young, who scored 28 points in a loss last weekend at Connecticut, is averaging 16.5 points through eight games for the Razorbacks.
Still, Anderson said he would like to see more consistency from his freshman star.
"It isn't all about scoring," Anderson said. "There are some other things that BJ has got to be able to do for our basketball team as well.
"We've got to get some other guys to start stepping up. I thought every time I looked to bring somebody in off the bench to give us a lift, we just couldn't find those people to give us a lift today."
While not in the starting lineup, Young started the second half, helping the Razorbacks pull within 41-35 shortly after halftime. Arkansas could get no closer, though, as the Sooners used a 13-3 run to break the game open.
Pledger scored eight points during the stretch. He began the run with a lay-up off an offensive rebound and added a pair of 3-pointers.
The run extended the Sooners lead to 16 points and Oklahoma led by as many as 18 in the second half.
"It just seemed like we could never get that lead down to a number we could work with," Anderson said. "That's a credit to them.
"I'll take the blame for this one here. We had a week to get prepared and we just didn't get the job done."
