Arkansas defeats Alabama, 71-59

Jan 16, 2010 - 10:09 PM FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.(AP) -- Three Arkansas players recorded double-doubles and the Razorbacks used a strong second-half showing to defeat Alabama 71-59 Saturday.

Marshawn Powell had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Mike Washington scored 17 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for the Razorbacks (8-9, 1-1 SEC). Courtney Fortson had 12 points and 10 assists. Rotnei Clarke also scored 17 for Arkansas, which outscored the Crimson Tide 39-25 in the second half after trailing 34-32 at the break.

The four double-figure scorers accounted for 64 of the Razorbacks' 71 points.

Mikhail Torrence scored 15 points to lead Alabama (11-6, 1-2). JaMychal Green had 13 points and eight rebounds and Tony Mitchell scored 12 for the Crimson Tide.

Arkansas outrebounded Alabama 40-27 in a physical game thanks to the inside play of Powell and Washington, and the toughness of Clarke.

It was 47-46 when Alabama guard Senario Hillman, who scored four points, was ejected for a flagrant foul for an elbow to Clarke's chin with 12:08 remaining. Hillman's foul seemed to spark the Razorbacks, who would outscore Alabama 24-13 the rest of the way.
