— Arkansas recorded 20 offensive rebounds and scored 30 points off turnovers as the Razorbacks beat Kentucky 73-60 Saturday at Bud Walton Arena.

Even though the Wildcats started 7-foot Willie Cauley-Stein, who recorded a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, and brought 6-foot-10 Kyle Wiltjer off of the bench, the undersized Razorbacks out-rebounded Kentucky 44-37. Arkansas scored 11 second chance points.

Forwards Coty Clarke and Marshawn Powell each recorded six offensive rebounds. Clarke filled the stat sheet and recorded his first career double-double by scoring 14 points and pulling down 12 rebounds. The junior from Birmingham, Ala. also added six assists and three steals.

Powell scored a team-high 15 points and was one rebound shy of a double-double.

Defensively, Arkansas (18-11, 9-7 SEC) responded to the disappointment Mike Anderson expressed after allowing 45 points in the first half of the 65-60 loss to LSU Wednesday. The Razorbacks forced 19 turnovers, which marked a season high for the Wildcats. Mardracus Wade recorded a team-high four steals for the Razorbacks.

The Wildcats (20-9, 11-5) only managed to score two points off 13 Arkansas turnovers.

After trailing by nine points in the opening minutes, the Razorbacks took their first lead when freshman forward Michael Qualls hit a 3-pointer with 12:31 left in the first half, part of a 12-2 run. Arkansas led 32-29 at halftime, but pulled away after outscoring Kentucky 16-6 over a six-minute span in the second half.

BJ Young scored 13 points in the contest after totaling just seven points in back-to-back losses to Florida and LSU. Little Rock native Archie Goodwin led the Wildcats with 14 points.

Arkansas returns to the hardwood Tuesday when it travels to Columbia, Mo. to face the Missouri Tigers. The Razorbacks beat Missouri 73-71 on Feb. 18 in Fayetteville.
