Mardracus Wade poured in a game-high 18 points as the Razorbacks moved to 10-0 at Bud Walton Arena this season by downing Texas Southern 77-49 Friday night before 9,100 fans.
Hunter Mickelson added career highs of 13 points and 7 blocks – five of those swats coming before halftime - while Marvell Waithe and Rickey Scott added 10 points each and BJ Young 8 for Arkansas (10-3), who won its fifth straight game.
The Razorbacks (10-3) forced the Tigers (1-11) into a whopping 25 turnovers, 17 of which had already occurred by halftime.
That allowed Arkansas to shoot just 41 percent from the field and still win handily.
"To their credit, they never gave up, even when it got up to 20 or 25, they continued to fight and claw," Anderson said of Texas Southern. "This game also gave me a chance to try a bunch of different combinations and hopefully having those guys in those situations will only benefit us."
Wade was 5-of-9 from the field while making 4-of-7 3-pointers while Mickelson was 6-of-8 - all from inside the arc.
That means the other Razorbacks were just 14-of-44 combined.
Wade is now 31-of-63 from 3-point range this season which is just under 50 percent.
"It is important that we have somebody to knock shots down," Anderson said. "You go with the guy that has the percentages. He (Wade) has been putting the time in, has worked extremely hard on it and I think we did a good job in transition early on really finding him."
Mickelson now has 33 blocks in his 13 collegiate games, including at least one in each of the outings.
His seven blocks was the most since Delvon Johnson recorded that many last season.
"He continues to be a presence out on the floor," Anderson said. "It is nice when you have a big guy that can have an impact on the game without even scoring. It just happens tonight he was also scoring.
"He did a good job of getting situated in their zone and posting and our guys did a good job of delivering it to him," Anderson added. "If he had made some free throws (1-of-4), that number even goes up. But I liked his energy and his activeness and he was rotating on the back end of the press. He got a steal and a couple of deflections.
"You see a young guy that is beginning to emerge a little bit and that is good for our basketball team," Anderson continued. "Especially as we get closer and closer to conference time. He is a guy with size that has a good skill set. He is nowhere near where he is going to be. He has a lot of work in front of him."
The game featured some horrendous free throw shooting as the two teams combined to go 31-of-53 from the charity stripe.
The Razorbacks, who hit only 21-of-33, did step up in the second half to convert 12 of their 14 free throw attempts.
Arkansas, which had 18 turnovers of its own, won the board battle 45-39.
True freshmen Rashad Madden, Mickelson and DeVonta Abron combined for 12 of those miscues.
"One thing I don't like is sloppiness and we are suppose to be a team that takes care of the basketball," Anderson said. "I guess part of that can be attributed to me. I am putting guys out there and hopefully they can learn. We have got to clean those up. Nien of those game from the freshman (Madden and Mickelson) so that's half of them."
Fred Sturdivant's 19 points and 13 rebounds was the lone bright spot for Texas Southern, the defending SWAC champ and NIT participant who has played just one home game this season.
Arkansas' first game of 2012 will be Tuesday when it host Savannah State and will then open SEC play with visiting Mississippi State on Saturday.
