Vols win fourth straight by roasting the Razorbacks, 77-58

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jordan McRae came off the bench to score 14 points as Tennessee beat Arkansas 77-58 on Wednesday night.

Five other Volunteers logged double-digit scoring as Tennessee shot 56 percent while holding the Razorbacks to 42.9 percent shooting. The Vols have won 10 of their last 11 at home.

Tennessee (14-12, 6-5 Southeastern Conference) hit nine of its first 10 shots and went on a 19-0 run early. The Vols led by as many as 24 points in the first half.

Arkansas (17-9, 5-6) used a 7-0 run immediately before halftime and another shortly after the break to pull within 14 points. Brandon Mitchell hit a layup for the Razorbacks with 8:22 to play that cut Tennessee's lead to 60-50, but it was as close as the Hogs would get.

BJ Young scored 18 points, and Hunter Mickelson scored 12 for Arkansas, which hasn't won a road game this season.
