Arkansas assistant coach David Patrick watched four players score in double figures and Connor Vanover pulled down a career-high 16 rebounds with six blocked shots to lead Arkansas to a 69-54 victory over North Texas.
North Texas twice tied Arkansas late in the first half, but could never make the punch that put them over. Late in the first half, Arkansas went on a 10-0 run and grew the lead to as many as 13 before the half.
In the second half, Arkansas used a 9-0 run to start the half to extend its lead. North Texas showed fight in the second half, going on runs of their own to cut the deficit but were unable to keep it going.
